Since 1985, the research section of Minoprio Foundation has been testing different composted materials of vegetable origin as components of growing media for ornamental pot plants. The study of the relationship between physical and chemical characteristics of composts and plant quality gave the opportunity to obtain good quality plants in cultivation trials, even by reducing the quantity of peat in the substrate until 1/3 of the total (Lamanna et al., 1991).
