Crew Mini Propagation Pot - 5.5cm x 6.5cm ROUND - WHITE
The teeny weeny Crew Mini Propagation Pot in White is both cute and practical. The perfect size for propagating cuttings and growing seedlings without taking up a tonne of room, and more importantly, less soil / substrate means less chance of root rot for your babies. Also available in Black.
Decent drainage holes too! Best used with drainage mesh. Other mini pots I've tried have tiny or only one drainage hole, or just not enough of them to keep that water moving and free-draining, away from precious new baby roots.
They measure 5.5cms tall x 6.5cms diameter at the top and 5.5cms diameter at the bottom. Being quite squat, their lower centre of gravity makes them more balanced compared to standard pots, so less likely to tip. Handy when using lighter substrates like sphagnum moss, succulent mix, perlite, or (my favourite) hydromix which I mix with potting mix for an ideal airy, free draining mix that still holds enough moisture and nutrients to look after newly potted babies.
Made of a rigid, yet still just thin enough plastic, to give them just the right amount of flex to easily, gently squeeze babies out when they're ready for an upgrade. Give the pot a wash and you're ready to re-use. They may be cheap but they're definitely tough enough to use again-and-again. Not a throw-away.
Size? Tick. Drainage? Tick. Price? Tick!
Go on, get a few, and get propping!
PS: This is my own combo that works a treat for my cuttings... dip in Clonex rooting gel (get the purple one), give them a soak or water with Groconut, a natural rooting and growth hormone from coconuts, then to keep up that nitrogen and calcium for faster root growth, stronger roots, and healthier, faster growing stems and leaves, water with a little GT CCS every time I water, which is a specialist rooting fertiliser for propagation and baby plants.
Some nutrients are mobile - your plant will move them around where they're needed - but some (like calcium) are immobile. That means once there's a deficiency, that root / stem / leaf's cells will be deficient for life. Calcium is not a deficiency you want in a newly propped cutting! Look for a fertiliser with calcium (GT and Dyna-Gro are two options).
