Not a single gardener or gardener can do without growing plants from seeds, and seedlings are used not only for private use, but also in nurseries. And every breeder knows - when planting any crop, by seeds or cuttings, it is better to buy cups for seedlings. They will provide a comfortable environment for the plant before planting in a permanent place. What else helps in growing good seedlings? We propose to consider together.
Types of seedling products
Depending on the type of crop being grown, different accessories, products and gadgets will come in handy. It can be:
round or square seedling cup;
seedling cassettes with different numbers of cells;
pallets for cassettes;
arches for a greenhouse and so on.
Each of the listed products has its own characteristics and advantages.
Peat tablets and cups
Pressed peat in a bag is convenient for germinating seeds. A small “washer” grows after the first contact with water, forming a soil breathable capsule in which the plant is provided with comfortable conditions.
The ideal solution for crops that are capricious to transplant - a bag of peat is buried in the ground when the time comes for planting. The eco-friendly shell decomposes completely in the soil without obstructing the root system.
Peat cups for seedlings are not inferior in convenience. The substrate is poured into the container, growing the seedlings until the deadline. In the future, they do the same as with a tablet - they bury a glass in the soil, without the need to reload the plant.
Cassettes are containers that are interconnected. The number of cells can be from 4 to 390 pieces. A separate container with drainage holes is provided for each seed, which has a positive effect on care.
Plastic cassettes are a real lifesaver for growing and transporting large volumes of seedlings. Additionally, you can purchase a pallet that prevents water overflow on the surfaces on which the containers are installed.
They can be round or square. The latter make it possible to optimally use the space, while the plants are at the initial stage of the growing season, and do not have a large green mass - just slide the containers closer.
A wide range of sizes allows you to choose a plastic pot suitable for large and small plants. Reusable containers, after use, are conveniently stored by folding the cups into each other.
