Plug & Germination
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.
