The X-stream range of aeroponic propagators gives the grower the quickest route to healthy transplants. Seeds or cuttings can be established in any growing medium or the grower can opt for using the mesh pots and clone collars supplied thus removing the need for a growing medium. The plants can then be transplanted to any medium or hydro system. The fast, strong root growth which occurs has made the aeroponic propagators a favourite with our customers.
How it works
The X-Stream Aeroponic misting chamber provides plants with constant access to highly oxygenated water causing roots to grow faster and stronger. It also reduces the risk of drying out or root rot.
Root growth can be checked without disturbing the plants by lifting the plant tray. Temperature and humidity can be controlled via large vents in the lid.
We recommend using 2x grow lights which are housed in a specifically designed recess in the lid. Using lights will help create healthy growth and prevent legginess.
Once transplanted into your chosen media, you will need to complete the propagation period in your choice of follow-on propagator.
Benefits of the system
5 sizes available.
Leave on 24/7
When cuttings go into the system, fill the tank with water and leave the pump on 24/7.
Open the vents gradually
When roots begin to show open the vents slightly, increase the opening every day, and then remove the lid completely to harden off for a couple of days before transplanting on.
Add Roots Excelurator for explosive roots
When roots begin to show add House & Garden’s Roots Excelurator at a quarter recommended dosage.
They’re ready to plant into your chosen media when roots begin to poke through the mesh pot
At this stage, it’s important to move cuttings to an alternative propagator for hardening off before moving to a system. Our X-Stream Heat or Vitopod are ideal.
Keep your water at an optimum temperature
Propagation water should be between 22°C–26°C. We recommend the optional Hailea 200w Water Heater to maintain this.
