Solid tip for fast cuttings

  1. Having trouble with the survival off your cuttings..!! Droopy..Dry...crazy watering times...

    Here's a cheap solid method a seasond grower told me...

    1. Buy a heated propigator..(B+Q) £30 aprx

    2. Buy your tray of 1/4 inch rock wool cubes or whatever size..

    3. put about 1/2 an inch of water in the bottom of the propogator.

    4. Soak the cubes with your prefered stater mix.

    5.take your cuttings in the normal way. (i use a rooting gel rather than powder).

    6. *IPORTANT BIT* place your tray of cuttings in propigator but stand it in something so it sits just above the water.. *NOT IN THE WATER*

    7. Put on the lid , vents closed and plug in.



    NOTES.

    This way the humidity is max and the should not even wilt. they only need to be checked for water once a day, the cubes stay very moist. Roots begin to show after3-5 days depending on strain. Then roots will flurish in warm damp conditions. start to open vents gradualy as roots begin to show. since using this method success rate is 99%. dont let the water in the bottom of the prop run dry. and dont fill it to high so it touches the cubes.


    Cheers MW.
