Sideau® is completely natural (made of basalt and an organic binder of Sucrose). No petrochemicals or microplastics are used in the production process
Sideau®absorbs water incredibly fast (a few seconds) without the formation of air bubbles in the product
Sideau®is usable for all kinds of flower arrangements, dried flowers, silk flowers and fresh flowers. One product for all your flower arrangements
Sideau®is reusable because of its spongy structure. It can be used for a second time by, for instance, wrapping chicken wire around it
Sideau®continues to absorb water time after time. This allows you to add water if the flower arrangement threatens to dry out
With Sideau® you no longer have any waste of product. If you have pieces left over after cutting the Sideau®blocks into shapes, you can easily tear these pieces into smaller parts and keep them. Put them in a pot, vase or wooden crate, like our “Moestuin Kistjes”, and use Sideau® as a substitute for potting soil. Anything with a root will grow on it
Sideau® has a neutral Ph-value of Ph 7.3 and a small nutrient supply of Ec 0.8.
Sideau® is easy to cut with for example a bread knife, without crumbling
Sideau® can be disposed in small pieces in the green container (according to the legislation of your country). You can also deposit it on your compost heap
What remains when degraded, is Basalt meal (sand) which is completely natural and harmless to nature
Basalt is full of nutritious minerals and is also used in agriculture and horticulture to upgrade heavy clay soil.
