Precision Temperature Control

One of the standout features of the Vitopod Propagator is its precision temperature control. The Heated Vitopod models come equipped with an electric propagator featuring an inbuilt thermostat.

Proper airflow prevents mould and disease, promoting healthier and more robust plant development. By adjusting these vents, you can create the ideal microclimate for your plants.

Even Heat Distribution

Ensuring even heat distribution is crucial for the success of any propagator. The Vitopod’s design includes a mechanism that distributes heat uniformly across the growing area. Even heat distribution fosters a higher germination success rate and simplifies watering management, as moisture levels are consistently maintained.

Robust Construction

Built to last, the Vitopod consists of durable, UV-resistant acrylic material. This robust construction not only ensures longevity but also provides a clear view of your plants’ progress without the risk of yellowing or degrading over time.

Using a Vitopod Propagator in your hydroponic setup is straightforward and highly effective. Follow these guidelines to ensure your seeds and cuttings thrive.

Setting the Temperature

First, plug in your Vitopod Propagator (Heated) and locate the thermostat controller. Adjust the thermostat to the desired temperature, anywhere between 5°C and 30°C. For most seeds, a temperature around 20°C is ideal, but always check specific requirements for your plants. This precision control ensures your plants have the best conditions for germination and growth.

Adjusting the Height

Next, assemble the Vitopod to the required height. Choose between single, double, or triple heights, depending on plant size. Each extension adds 15cm, giving your plants plenty of space to grow. Adjusting the height is simple; stack the sections securely to provide the necessary room.

Managing Humidity and Air Circulation

Open the large vents in the lid to control humidity and improve air circulation. Proper ventilation is essential for the prevention of mould and diseases. You can adjust the vents to increase or decrease airflow based on the humidity needs of your plants. Typically, more airflow is needed as plants grow larger and produce more moisture.

Planting Seeds and Cuttings

Fill your plant containers with the appropriate growing medium, such as rockwool or hydroponic clay pellets. Place your seeds or cuttings into the medium, ensuring they are positioned correctly for optimal growth. Arrange the trays or pots inside the Vitopod, making sure not to overcrowd them to allow for proper air circulation.

Monitoring and Maintenance

Regularly keep an eye on the temperature and humidity levels inside the Vitopod. Adjust the thermostat and vents as needed to maintain optimal conditions. Keep an eye on the moisture level of your growing medium and water as necessary. The even heat distribution of the Vitopod ensures that your plants receive consistent warmth, promoting healthy growth.

Cleaning and Storage
