-Cell flats (plugs): smaller cells have to stay hydrated, more vulnerable, 150-270 plants. Better for automatic watering sys, takes more contestant attention
-4' pot: good for larger seeds (cucurbic family; beans corn pumpkin)
Can put 2 seeds in each corner, uses more volume soil=more nutrients so won't dry out as fast, less watering
6 pack: small volume of soil, water once a day 25-30% shade dappled/filtered light
Types of Propagation
use with: bulbs, asparagus, artichokes
*Put in water if possible to relieve plant stress
*root during the main growing season
*Plant should be same size as pot
*Cuttings do not require strictly sterile environment
* Get it used to what conditions it will encounter
*You want small roots emerging from containers
*Soak larger seeds overnight plant next day (smaller seeds become harder to handle when wet) gives you even germination, good for bean/legume plants,
-->after soaking dip in rhizobium (bacterium) powder ~ 70% more production when inoculated
*Get seeds from a respected seed source!
*Look for safe seed pledge (Territorial seeds, High moving seeds, Turtle tree, check syllabus for more!
*Which end is up? Do not plant
cuttings upside down!
*Use a cutting code: cut top flat, cut bottom at angle
