Horticulture plug tray benefits
Growing a plant as a plug helps to strengthen its root system while encouraging faster plant development when transplanted into the final container.
Each cell size has its own unique advantages. Smaller cell sizes offer several benefits including helping to strengthen a weaker root system while maximising space in your greenhouse area. The larger cell size allows the plug to remain in the tray longer before transplanting, allowing the plant to retain both moisture level and nutrients longer.
Before choosing that final cell size, consider your production schedule, the species- rowing pattern, including root development and the available propagation space.
