Young plant propagation
The hardest factor to fine-tune for young plant propagation is applying the appropriate amount of water for each type of crop. Apply too much, rooting is limited to weak, thin “water roots” which reduces the performance of a post-planted liner. Apply too little, cuttings dry out, and exhibit limited rooting or die. Watering is key and often cuttings are over-watered versus underwatered so a coarser growing medium, such as PRO-MIX® BX BIOFUNGICIDE™ + MYCORRHIZAE™ may be better than a germination growing medium. Contact your Grower Service Representative to determine which growing medium is best for you.
