One of the benefits of propagation trays is the easy transplanting process, with as few limitations as possible. When your plant has outgrown the tray, you’ll see strong root growth at the bottom of the plug. From here, gardeners can transfer the plug into their new home, allowing new plants to continue to grow deep and thrive.
If you’re transferring propagation plants from the indoors to outdoors, consider gradual exposure to outdoor conditions before transplanting seedlings into the ground. A sudden change from the consistent temperatures of an indoor environment to the ever-changing weather patterns of the outdoors can cause young plants to fail to thrive.
You can increase your plants ability to adapt to these changing conditions by bringing your propagation tray outside for a few hours each day and back inside at night. Increase the amount of time spent outside each day over a period of a week or two and this will allow your seedlings to adjust gradually.
Once you’re confident that seedlings from the plant propagation tray are strong and the soil conditions are right, insert the plug straight into the ground and secure it with dirt. It’s that easy!
You can also supplement the soil with the right GardenTap plant fertilizers. For increased essential oil production, consider adding Aurora Innovations Roots Organics Surge
. Or, to enhance the growth of your plants in the vegetative phase, opt for Green Planet Nutrients Vitathrive
