Propagation / Aeroponic Propagators
Cuttings are placed in neoprene clone collars inside a misting chamber and the stems of the cuttings are constantly sprayed with a mist of nutrient solution. Rooting gel is not required but can still be used if so desired.
The constant supply of nutrient, water and oxygen, combined with the lack of restrictive growing medium, encourages roots to develop rapidly as they ‘push out’ to access the nutrient solution. Cuttings are ready to transplant in around 10 days with many people reporting even quicker times. On top of this root growth is much larger than traditional methods of propagating cuttings.
Heat and humidity are fully controllable by gradually opening the large butterfly vents in the X-Stream propagator humidity dome.
Aeroponics has long been recognised as the most productive method of growing plants without soil. Instead of absorbing feed and water from running liquid, aeroponically grown plants receive theirs at root level through a fine mist. This introduces large amounts of air into the equation for improved nutrient uptake and better root zone health. Rooting times are vastly reduced and success rates are significantly increased - not only that but root development also greatly improves. Your plants will clearly get the best possible start to life this way.
