Propagating seeds and cuttings with Sure to Grow

  • Completely saturate the Sure to Grow® media.
  • Place in free-draining plant trays on a level surface to prevent nutrient run-off and migration; avoid pooling of water at the root zone.
  • Deposit seeds into the pre-punched dibble holes; larger seeds and cuttings can be inserted into the cross-cut “x” in the center of the dibble hole.
  • After seeding, water the seeds or cuttings gently from the top to establish good contact with the media.
  • Cover with a humidity dome or another tray until the seed coat has cracked and the radicle has emerged.
  • Keep the media evenly moist during germination. Top watering or flood and drain are the most effective irrigation methods during the germination stage.
  • Upon germination, remove the dome and expose seedlings to full light.
  • When adjacent seedling leaves are touching, transplant to your growing system. Be sure to completely saturate the roots and cubes at the time of transplanting.

Irrigation

  • Once true leaves have emerged it is essential that a complete water-soluble nutrient formulated for the crop be supplied to the plants.
  • Compared to other media, STG® will generally require more frequent but shorter irrigation intervals.
  • Once plants are placed in the growing system, the irrigation interval must allow the media to stay evenly moist throughout.
  • In flood and drain systems, set the flood level to 1/4” to 1/2” below the top surface of the media.
  • Should the media dry out, the media needs to be completely rehydrated by flooding and draining or thoroughly watering from the top.

Crop Production

  • Vine crops and taller plants may require support in the form of staking or trellising sooner than with other types of media.
  • Cover the surface of deeper containers (Bato buckets, Dutch Pots), with a solid cover to block light, preserve moisture and prevent algae growth.
