How the Cuttings Essentials Bundle Works
The basic concept to taking cuttings is actually quite straight forward: you're simply removing small sections of a plant and placing them in an environment where they can sprout roots of their own. The devil is in the detail, though, and that's why it pays to use the right equipment:
Rooting plugs provide an optimal environment for root development, offering the right balance between water retention (ensuring that your cuttings don't dry out) and aeration. Soak your rooting plugs before use, but squeeze out any excess moisture before transplanting your cuttings.
Clonex rooting gel stimulates the growth of new roots from your freshly taken cutting, accelerating the whole process and improving your success rates. It contains a special rooting hormone, anti-fungal agents to protect plants when they're at their most vulnerable, and an array of nutrients and trace elements to provide a source of nutrition.
Using a scalpel ensures that you create a clean, surgical cut that causes as little damage to surrounding areas as possible, reducing stress to both the cutting and the mother plant. They're also completely sterile, which reduces the chances of spreading infections.
