This tray of Jiffy Rockwool Cubes is essential for all your seedling needs. They are ideal for transporting seeds, seedlings and young plants. They have been designed to be used in propagators and will help to ensure your plants thrive.
Soak the tray of Jiffy cubes with pH adjusted plain water and place it in the bottom of a propagator. Choose healthy shoots with thick stems from which to take your cuttings and make the last cut with a sterile scalpel. Dip the cut end into a rooting gel such as Clonex and then place the end of the cutting into one of the rooting plugs. When you have finished taking your cuttings, put the lid on your propagator and move to a mild environment under your propagation light. Keep the rooting plugs moist and mist your cuttings 2-3 times a day. After a few days, gradually open up the ventilation slots on the lid of your propagator to reduce humidity.

Definition – What does Seed Propagation mean?
Seed propagation is the method of plant propagation (multiplying, reproducing, or breeding new plants) that is done through the use of seeds. Plants that produce seeds are called spermatophytes.
Seeds are made up of three separate parts, and when a seed matures in an optimal environment, it will germinate and actively grow. Seed propagation occurs naturally but can be done intentionally by gardeners and farmers.
GTP Hydro Explains Seed Propagation
Seed propagation is how many plants naturally reproduce. Additionally, farmers and gardeners can take advantage of seed propagation by obtaining seeds from plants they wish to propagate or grow. Many gardeners will often save and grow ornamental plants and crops from seeds, especially if the plant has many desirable characteristics. This is because seeds carry the genetic information of the parent plant, and will, therefore, retain many of the same characteristics of the parent plant.
In seed propagation, seeds can be germinated and planted in individual containers or starter plugs until they form seedlings. These seedlings can then be transferred to larger containers, or planted in beds or fields. In addition, seeds can be sown directly into the ground and allowed to grow. Additionally, seeds can be gathered from parent plants, or they can be purchased at many different retailers.
As an alternative to seed propagation, gardeners can also propagate plants via plant cuttings (taking clones), grafting, or plant tissues, depending in their skillset, range of equipment they have available, and the plants they are wishing to propagate.
“I got this kit to help grow some exotic chillies. It’s easy to set up, and even easyer to put the seeds in! So little mess compared to the usual potting methods with loose compost. I saw a High germination success rate with about 75% of all the chillies germinating.”
