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

Any substrate or growing medium


3-5″ Containers

3 to 5 inch container size


72 – 78° F

Optimal temperature


60-70%

Relative humidity


200-500 PPFD

Light intensity


4 Weeks

Vegetation time for a 16-22″ plant




Transplanting Protocol


Step 1

 

Remove the film layer on the sterile plant pack and carefully remove the rooting tray.


Step 2

 

Use a small utensil to gently remove the plant from rooting cubes by pushing through hole in the bottom of each cell.


Step 3

 

Place the rooting cube 1/4" below the soil so that no root hairs are exposed.




Substrates

 

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.


Container Size

 

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.
