- Mini greenhouse with a watering function that makes indoor cultivation easier than ever.
- Size: 19,5x29x21 cm
The Rootmaster is a mini greenhouse made to make indoor cultivation easy. Thanks to its watering function, you only have to add water to the tray and let the diluted plants germinate. As the roots gradually emerge from the ventilation holes of the plug cells, the root ends dry out and new roots are formed higher up. This type of air pruning creates deep and well-developed root systems. In addition, the plug cells can be opened in the middle, just like a book, which makes it even easier to handle them.
The Rootmaster is made from recyclable materials while its bottom trays and lid is made from polypropylene. The package also contains 8 watering bands (4 in use, 4 spares) that can be rinsed and reused after cultivation.
How to use:
- Assembly. A) Thread a watering band through each plug holder (the middle of the plug cells). B) Hook the plug cell walls together and close. C) Hang the watering band on the pin on one of the ends of the plug holder to deactivate the watering function.
- Sowing. A) Fill the plug cells to halfway with seed compost and pack the compost in tightly so the plugs stay together. Continue to fill the cells with compost but pack it loosely in the cell’s upper half. Brush away any soil from the plug holder’s baseplate. B) Place the plug holder on the inside ledge of the drip tray and water until the soil in the cells is moist. C) Sow the seeds according to the instructions on the seed packet. Use one or two seeds per cell. D) Put the lid over the mini greenhouse and place it in a warm and bright area, away from direct sunlight.
- Watering. A) Keep the seeds moist by spraying them using a spray bottle. Place the plants in a cool place when the first leaf pair (cotyledons) appear but continue to spray them. IMPORTANT! The watering function should first be used when the second leaf pair (true leaves) appears. This is when the plant will have long enough roots. B) Take the watering band off the pin on the plug holder where watering is to be activated. This can be done at different times for the different plug holders. C) Pour approx. 1 litre of water into the drip tray. Water the plug cell well from above. The watering band needs to be wet from below and via the soil inside the cell. D) Refill the water in the tray when necessary. The lower half of the watering band should always be below the water. The nutrients in seed compost often run out after 3-4 weeks. You can see this through the plants having pale leaves or slow growth. If this happens add potted plant food to the water in the drip tray. Follow the dosing instructions.
- Transplanting. A) When the leaves on the plant have grown so tall that the lid no longer fits they should be transplanted. Lift the plug holder out of the drip tray. Lift one of the plug cell walls slightly upwards, angle it outwards and open it. B) Transplant the plants to pots that hold 4-5 times as much soil as the plug cell. Then transplant to even bigger pots gradually. Some plants can be transplanted directly to their final growing place immediately, check the instructions on the seed packet.
