Green Coal

With the development of urbanization,people are eager to encounter with something natural in the world surrounded by steel and concrete.There is no denying that desktop potted plants can certainly make a good way to meet this desire.Based on the conception of environmental protection,bits of wood,scraps of paper and other organic crumbs along with some micronutrients plants needed are fermented into cultivating soil and pressurized into the shape of"honeycomb briquette"after drying.Porous structure is beneficial for the pots to breathe freely;Wood-based and paper-based cultivation soil is fertile and water holding.
