Growing Guidelines & First Steps

PLANTS MUST BE PLANTED WITHIN 48 HOURS OF RECEIVING.
To ensure the highest success rates and growth uniformity, the following environmental conditions and transplanting protocol must also be used:




Environmental parameters for initial growth stages


Any Substrate

Any substrate or growing medium


3-5″ Containers

3 to 5 inch container size


75 – 80° F

Optimal temperature


65-80%

Relative humidity


300-500 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 rooting cube from tray 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.
