Propagation Chamber Single Adjustable Vent helps to provide a humid, enclosed environment in which to nurture cuttings until they become rooted clones.
This Propagation Chamber is not heated and is medium in size, capable of holding up to 18 cuttings.
Manufactured with a tough & strong plastic construction this Propagation Chamber has a clear plastic lid to allow light through and contains a single adjustable ventilation hole.
How the Propagation Chamber Single Adjustable Vent works
Our medium 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.
A single adjustable ventilation slot is 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.
Using the Propagation Chamber Single Adjustable Vent
Providing the optimum environment can decrease germination time, improve uniformity and increase the number of seeds or cuttings that germinate.
Fluorescent lamps are the common choice for providing the light needed for cuttings and seedlings.
T-5 fluorescent lamps installed horrizontally and evenly are most common and are usually more cost effective.
LED lights are becoming popular for germination and propagation as well.
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 a propagation light.
Keep the rooting plugs moist and mist your cuttings 2-3 times a day. After a few days, gradually open up the 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.
