Grow-Tech: Advanced Rooting Substrate Technology for the Professional Grower



FlexiPlugs & FlexiTrays


Cellular Rooting Sponge Technology - Soilless Growing Media

PropTec's FlexiPlugs are a propagation system that will increase the efficiency of your greenhouse by allowing for earlier transplanting, better crop timing and full automation. Both hydroponic and traditional greenhouse growers use FlexiPlugs for rooting cuttings and seed germination. Our growing media is pH balanced and can be formulated to include micronutrients and beneficial biologicals. FlexiPlugs are designed to put you in control.

We know that nurserymen are always looking for ways to increase efficiency in their production systems. FlexiPlugs maximize quality and eliminate waste thus saving time and money. They consist of stabilized plugs made of peat, other organics and a foam binder. They provide consistent moisture control and high aeration which reduce rooting times. Whether you are growing from seeds or cuttings, this means a faster crop turnaround for you, and because the plugs come pre-moistened and dibbled, standard growing media preparation time is eliminated.

Highsun's own growers say, "Flexiplugs have been a huge improvement for our new foliage crops that are difficult to deflask. The decreased losses have more than outweighed the slight increase in deflasking costs."

Let the ZenPlug reduce the stress of planting your tissue culture production!

When transplanting delicate tissue cultures, protection of roots and callus is critical. Balancing this with speed and efficiency can be tricky and stressful. With this in mind, Grow-Tech created the ZenPlug for tissue culture starts. An open plug shape allows for the precise and rapid placement of large callused plants such as orchids and trees in the center of the plug. With a single hand motion, the ZenPlug easily folds around fragile roots. The s-shaped interior holds the roots firmly but gently in place and gives young plants the optimal environment for root growth.


Grower Benefits:

  • Easier and faster planting of tissue culture plants
  • Shorter rooting period
  • Optimal aeration
  • pH balanced
  • Even dry down
