Growing Guidelines & First Steps
To ensure the highest success rates and growth uniformity, the following environmental conditions and transplanting protocol must be used:
Environmental parameters for initial growth stages
Any substrate or growing medium
3 to 5 inch container size
72 – 78° F
Vegetation time for a 16-22″ plant
Remove the film layer on the sterile plant pack and carefully remove the rooting tray.
Use a small utensil to gently remove the plant from rooting cubes by pushing through hole in the bottom of each cell.
Place the rooting cube 1/4" below the soil so that no root hairs are exposed.
Tissue culture clones can be grown in any substrate or growing medium including soil, soilless, rockwool, deep-water culture etc. with varying degrees of acclimation time.
Organic substrates with high air-to-water ratios will have the fastest acclimation time followed by denser organic substrates and finally inorganic substrates.
We recommend transplanting your tissue culture clones into a 3 - 5 inch pot. If initial transplanting into a larger container size (1-3 gallons) is desired, fertigation should be limited to 3" around the rooting cube and particular care should be taken to prevent saturation of growing substrate.
