Propagators in hydroponics are ideal incubators for rootings, cuttings and germinating seeds.

The natural process through which seeds start to sprout into new, young plants is called germination. When they receive the right combination of moisture, oxygen, darkness, and temperature, their internal enzymes work, causing internal energy to release and the seed to sprout.

Keeping the environment steady is a challenge for seed germination. A seed can perish at any time during this crucial transition if it loses any of the essential environmental elements. An obstacle that prevents seeds from fully germinating is anything like harsh cold, dry spells, or pests.

A propagator’s primary function is to germinate seeds before continuing to grow them until they are big enough to handle. Then, potting the young plants allows them to continue growing and achieve their desired size.

Therefore, germinating plants in a propagator has many benefits. They are ideal for work since they provide a secure environment for growth and protection from external dangers.

There are several types of propagators, from the entry-level budget models to the far more sophisticated Aeroponic models, so you should be able to find one that suits your needs.

Made from high-quality, durable thermoplastic, they have transparent covers to provide excellent moisture retention and draught-proofing.

Depending on your requirements, you can pick between heated and unheated propagators. Heated propagators are perfect if your grow space is lower in temperature as they have an element located at the unit’s base, which optimises temperature.

Young seedlings are more susceptible to injury from fluctuations in moisture and temperature. Your seeds have a considerably better chance of surviving if you plant them in a propagator.

Growers using propagators in hydroponics often add an amount of moistened perlite to the bottom of the unit. This action helps to prevent the media from becoming too dry.

Successful propagation requires a balanced, high-humidity environment and a clean grow space with proper lighting and the right atmosphere for germinating seeds and rooting cuttings.
