These Nutrients include:
Potash - a crucial nutrient for flowering and fruiting
Nitrogen, Calcium, Magnesium - to stimulate natural development and growth
And also included are micronutrients (nutrients plants need less of) and trace elements (elements that the plants need in tiny quantities).
All the nutrients, micronutrients and trace elements are in a balanced ratio so that every nutrient is provided to the plant in the right balance relative to the others.
250ml bottle powder nutrient refills - for your Hydropod 20 & 40 cuttings. Makes 250ml of of nutrient A and 250ml of nutrient B.
2.5 litres of Powdered Nutrient - for your Hydropod 120 cuttings. Makes 5 litres of concentrated nutrients (2.5 litres of nutrient A and 2.5 litres nutrient B).
The Hydropod helps increase cuttings propagation success rates and speeds up cuttings propagation by providing exactly the correct amount of moisture, preventing damping-off and mould.
A cutting loses water through its leaves but has no root system by which it can absorb water, it can take up a small amount through its base. In our Hydropod Propagator, cuttings are regularly misted; this mist lowers the leaf temperature, creates a humid atmosphere and reduces the amount of water lost from the leaves - so cuttings are kept moist but without ever becoming water-logged (water-logging leads to rotting and mould).
The constant spray around the base of the plants has the added advantage of encouraging the roots to ‘grow-out’ quickly to access the water.
The lid retains warmth and the optional heater maintains an even temperature so that you don't lose plants to low temperatures.
The vent in the lid enables you to lower the humidity as the cuttings grow.
