Growing in Parboiled Rice Hulls

Growing in Parboiled Rice Hulls

I’ve heard of many greenhouses and nurseries using parboiled rice hulls, known as PBH, as a major part of their grows. I’ve used aged or composted rice hulls successfully for some time now, but it compacts a little more than I’d like and it deposits more debris in the gutters than I’d like. So, I did some extensive research on crop growth, PH, methods, etc on PBH and determined I needed to add it to my methods. I’ve got some growing in 90% PBH all the way down to 50% PBH. I’m sharing it all with you! Tell me what you think!

What do you think?


  1. Believe it or not but I am just now watching this video for the first time. 🙁
    I have no idea how I missed it. So now maybe you understand my text from yesterday? I know that I understand your confusion from the text now!!!
    Where are you storing the hulls now?

  2. Do you know what the nutritional content of both types of rice hulls are. I laughed when I saw where you were. I use to drive from McCory to Jonesboro for college! Anywho.. A local nursery uses the darker rice hulls as a compost additive in a soil mix but I have not found a lot of information on them.
