5cm Net Pots – Pack of 10
5cm Net Pots are ideal for aeroponics, deep water culture and DIY systems. 5cm Net Pots are great in conjunction with neoprene collars in aeroponics propagation systems such as the X-Stream propagator. After taking the cutting, wrap the neoprene collars around it and place into the propagator. The pots sit below the top tray and a fine mist of water and nutrient constantly spray around the base of the plants. This misting stimulates fast growth as the roots grow out to access the water and nutrient. The plants have superb access to oxygen and plants are typically ready to transplant after just 7 to 10 days.5 cm net pots are supplied in packs of 10.
As well as 5cm Net pots, what do I need to make a DIY system?
It’s quite easy to make your own system with just a few bits and pieces. You’ll need a resevoir with a lid. One of our 20L Buckets with Lid are perfect. Cut holes in the lid where you want the pots to sit and place them in. Then, simply set up an aeration system such as an air pump with a stone. If you want to simulate an X-Stream propagator, we also have a few misters and sprayers available. These will need connecting to a water pump to spray the pots (and therefore plants) with water and nutrition.
At Straight Up Hydroponics, we have a range of nutrients that are ideal for propagation and hydroponic systems. To see what we have available, please click on this link.
