Root growth in rootrainers

Rootrainers propagation kits are the perfect start for nearly all plants, especially those that are sensitive to disturbance and benefit from deeper roots.  There are several sizes available so there is one to suit any plant whether raised from seed or cuttings.

  • Rootrainers encourage optimum root formation; including long straight roots; a fundamental requirement of healthy and successful growth.
  • The Rootrainer plant plug is rectangular with grooves so that the roots grow down straight preventing root circling.
  • There is an air gap at the bottom of the cell allowing for air pruning of the root so that it is not outside the cell.
  • The growth in the Rootrainer plugs means that there is less root disturbance when transplanting
