AeroNT Plug for Propagation of Cuttings and Tissue Culture:
AeroNT plugs are created by blending high-quality peat with coir fibers, perlite and a binder. This blend is a perfect medium for the propagation of cuttings under high humidity conditions, such as a propagation room.
The AeroNT plug can be used to propagate annuals, perennials, trees, vines and tissue culture. The unique formulation enables plugs to dry faster than most media, while remaining easy to rewet.

Directions for Use:
The AeroNT trays arrive pre-filled and ready to use. Its dibble holes are filled up with a fine, soft peat that guarantees an optimal contact of the cutting with the plug.
It is important NOT to water AeroNT plugs before sticking. Doing so will close up the holes. AeroNT plugs continue to dry after rooting, and therefore, it is important to closely monitor the plants.
The uniquely prepared dibble is perfectly centered in the plug. For the 50-cell tray, we have the option to make 3 dibble holes per plug.
To maintain sticking speed, make sure that you have the tray with the 2 holes towards you. The holes will always be situated at 12, 4 and 8 o’clock.
For large-leaved cuttings, AeroNT plugs can be distributed in custom patterns. Ask your sales representative for more information.
