Crew Stem Soil and Moss Pole Pins - 10 pack - RED
Use these handy Crew Stem Soil Pins to pin down stems and cuttings, keeping nodes in contact with soil to get those roots growing! These are fantastic also for use with moss poles to secure stems to the pole without fiddly ties. Also called soil pins, soil clips, stem forks, soil forks or stem clips. These come in packs of 10. Also available in green.
Much easier to remove later once rooted compared to other methods of pinning down stems, thanks to the easy-to-spot strawberry-red colour and pull tab that sticks up just enough above the soil surface to easily grab and pull up once the stem has rooted. Made of sturdy plastic. Reusable over and over. The pull tab also means you don't damage delicate stems or new roots when removing the pin later.
These come in packs of 10. Each pin measures just under 2 inches or 4.8cms long, by 1.5cms wide. The tab on top measures 1cm and it goes up to 3.5cms deep into the soil to hold even stubborn stems securely in place.
The 5 main uses are:
Curl back on top and pin down stems of 'String of....' and 'Chain of...' so the nodes stay in touch with the soil on top and start growing again. Great method when stems are green and growing at the ends but the roots are bare or stringy.
Pin down stems of vining epiphytes with aerial roots, filling in bare patches to create a fuller, more lush plant. Popular method with vining plants like Pothos, Epipremnum and Philodendron (Neon Pothos shown in the photos).
To pin down cut stems for soil propagation, encouraging root growth where nodes touch the soil. Especially popular with longer stems with closely-spaced nodes, such as String of Turtles and String of Pearls. Also popular when propagating using the butterfly method for Chain of Hearts.
As a form of air layering to propagate without cutting. Pin down a node onto the soil surface without cutting it off the mother plant. Wait for roots to grow, then trim off the already rooted plant. A faster, more successful method than soil propagation for many epiphytic plants with aerial roots.
Use with moss poles to keep nodes in touch with substrate, encouraging aerial roots to grow into your new support pole and attaching stems to the pole until they hold on themselves.
Great for using on moss poles and for pinning down to the soil. Exactly what I was after and very affordable.
