Description

The ROOT!T Dry Peat Free 24 Cell Filled Tray is a great way to start propagation, and the ideal addition to any standard size propagator. A handy 24-cell tray containing 24 dry peat-free advanced natural polymer rooting plugs which fits most standard seed trays. The unique octagonal cells of the tray ensure a small air gap around the plugs to air-prune the new roots for more rapid development after potting on. The dry plugs are lightweight and can be stored for a long time with no fear of mould development. Simply steep overnight in a solution of ROOT!T First Feed to hydrate before use. The plugs have a stepped dibble (hole) in the top, first a wider hole to accept seed, and beneath that a narrower, deeper hole to accept cuttings. The plugs are natural and biodegradable and will break down naturally into the substrate or soil. The cell tray can be re-used with fresh plugs.

FAQs:  
Q: How should I prepare my ROOT!T Dry Peat Free Plugs for use? 
A: We recommend that you first place the cell tray in a seed tray or the bottom of a propagator, and hand-water them with a solution of ROOT!T First Feed (5ml First Feed to 1 L of water) to fully hydrate. Allow the plugs to stand for a few hours (ideally overnight) in a shallow pool of the solution, so that they can draw up their full capacity of solution. 
Q: I’m growing from seed. How should I proceed? 
A: First you can find some great advice here http://www.propagateplants.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/ROOTT_Successful_Propagation_Guide.pdf 
Place your prepared seed into the wider, upper part of the dibble, and cover it with a small piece- torn from the outer edge of the plug to block out light. Position your plugs away from draughts, maintaining a temperature of 18°C – 22°C (64°F – 72°F) and keep them moist, but do not overwater. Ideally use a covered propagator. Keep them in a dark place until shoots appear. 
Q: I’m growing from cuttings. How should I proceed? 
A: First you can find some great advice here http://www.propagateplants.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/ROOTT_Successful_Propagation_Guide.pdf 
Fill the dibble in the top of the plug with ROOT!T Rooting Gel. This is not hormonal, it simply seals around the cut surface of the cutting, aiding uptake of water and defending against dehydration and infection. Insert your prepared cutting into the deeper, narrower part of the dibble until the lowest node is at the top of the plug. Ideally place your cuttings in a covered propagator and keep them in a humid atmosphere at about 22°C (72°F). Do not over water. Allow plenty of sunlight or provide artificial lighting. Roots should appear during the second week.
