Seed Starter Plugs

The most critical phase of growing plants is seed germination. Seeds do not germinate until they get the best environment. Thus, seed starter plugs is gradually becoming one of the most popular ways to initiate root sprouting.  

Why You Should Use Seed Starter Plugs?

While seed starter plugs are common among expert growers, amateur growers and hobbyists still do not know their benefits.  

Seed starter plugs are also known as root plugs. They are a great way to introduce efficiencies in initial root sprouting. They are simple and free from complexities that growers usually have to deal with when choosing soil or any other grow medium for this purpose. There are three varieties of plugs Rockwool slabs, plugs and root cubes, and coco mixes. If you step into the market to purchase one, you will find that these plugs are usually available in two forms; individual cubes and sheets. The most commonly available type of seed starter plugs is the oasis root cubes.  

So, why is this form so popular? The reason is that it is much easier to transplant a clone or seed from the plug to the grow medium when it is time. It is important to know how to use these plugs to enjoy the desired results.  

What Is the Process of Using Seed Starter Plugs?  

Step 1: Maintaining Moisture 

The first step is to ensure that the root plug is kept moist at all times. Please note that the moisture should be balanced too much will ,drown the seed and , too less, it will make the plug dry out. Once the plugs dry out, re-moisturizing them is a challenge.  

Step 2: Placing the Seed 

Once you have ensured the right moisture content of the root plug, it is time to place the seed in it. Make sure that the seed does not drown, and when it begins to sprout, it should have continuous access to water.  

In case you are using a root plug for cloning, you need to apply a rooting gel or solution on the clone before you place it in the plug.  

Step 3: Monitoring 

After you have correctly placed the seed in the root plug and ensured the right amount of moisture content, you need to monitor the development.  The monitoring phase begins when you place the root plug in the seed starting or cloning system 

On average, it takes two weeks to sprout, after which a grower must prepare for transplantation.
