How the Propagator – Large Unheated works:

Our large unheated propagator consists of a deep bottom tray and a tall, clear plastic lid. The bottom can hold a tray of rooting-cubes into which fresh cuttings are placed. When the clear plastic lid is placed on the top, a humid environment is created which helps to prevent your cuttings from wilting and dying. 4 adjustable ventilation slots are provided on the top of the lid so that humidity can be reduced as the cuttings begin to root and to provide a limited supply of fresh air whenever necessary. Our large unheated propagator can be used for up to 48 cuttings at a time.

Using the Propagator – Large Unheated:

Comprehensive instructions about how to take cuttings and using a propagator can be found in various places on the internet. Here is a short guide: Place a tray of your favourite moistened rooting cubes into the bottom tray of the propagator. Choose healthy shoots with thick stems from which to take your cuttings and make the last cut with a sharp, sterile scalpel. Dip the end in a rooting gel such as Clonex and then place the end of the cutting into one of the rooting plugs. When you have finished taking your cuttings, put the lid on the propagator and move to a mild environment with propagation lighting levels. Keep the rooting plugs moist and mist your cuttings 2-3 times a day. After a few days, gradually ventilation slots on the lid to reduce humidity. When your cuttings have rooted through the plugs, they can then be placed in soil or a hydroponics system to grow.
