Plug & Germination
Advice from our specialist
Premier Tech Horticulture offers two products for plug and germination applications: PRO-MIX® FPX, which contains perlite for extra drainage, and PRO-MIX® PGX, which contains vermiculite for a greater water retention capacity. When using these products, remember to begin continuous fertilizer applications after the emergence of the first true leaves. For the best root development, cut back waterings once seedling roots go to the sides of the container. Allow the surface to dry down between waterings and refrain from irrigating late in the day to avoid disease problems.
The vast majority of plant species used in urban horticulture will benefit from the presence of mycorrhizal fungi.
Most growers have seen yellowing in the new growth of their petunias, calibrachoa and other crops as listed in this article.
