"Simply the best electric heated propagator on the market. BBC Gardeners' World magazine
Our Vitopod Heated propagator has won many awards because it provides the perfect environment for seeds, cuttings and over-wintered plants.
- Precise control - the Vitopod's thermostat can be set to any 1°C between 5°C and 30°C to meet the exact needs of your plants. No other heated propagator gives such range and precision.
- Height adjustable - the Vitopod can be bought as single, double or triple height, or you can order height extensions at any time. Each extension is15cm tall, so you can protect plants for longer and can overwinter without heating your greenhouse.
- Even heat - heat is distributed evenly throughout the base, so there are no hot or cold spots. Seeds germinate evenly with higher success rates.
- Accurate temperature sensor - triggers the supply of more or less heat depending on the sensor reading, maintaining the right temperature without wasting electricity.
- Large vents - for humidity control, so your plants don’t dampen-off.
- Robust - this electric propagator is built to last. The acrylic lids and sides are treated to prevent yellowing.
Whatever you're growing you can rely on the Vitopod propagator to provide the ideal conditions.

The Vitopod electric heated propagator delivers better germination rates, more effective over-wintering and hassle-free hardening-off of young plants. It was designed by botanists and plant geneticists and is used by many commercial nurseries as well as amateur gardeners because the benefits are based on science.
Precision temperature control
The temperature of the Vitopod propagator is accurate to within 1C and it can be set between 5°C and 30°C. This means you can provide the temperature required by the plants whether they are the most popular veg plants, heirloom varieties, super-hot chillies or exotic decoratives.
The Vitopod propagator sensor and heater mat are always working together to keep the plants at the right temperature. When the sensor registers that the temperature has dropped below the set temperature it gently turns up the power to increase the heat without shocking the plants. When the sensor registers the temperature has increased above the set temperature it turns the heat off.
This precision, stable temperature control results in higher germination rates, faster growth and stronger healthier plants.
The Vitopod delivers its heat evenly throughout the base so every seed tray receives the same level of heat. Other propagators have a heating cable in the base which results in hot spots on top of the cable and cold spots in the parts between the heating cable. The Vitopod's even heat is achieved because the heating elements are tightly packed together.
No hot or cold spots in the base means that the propagation success rate is higher because all of the seedlings or cuttings receive the correct temperature.
The humidity vents in the Vitopod propagator lids and sides allow for much greater humidity control. Humidity control is crucial in a propagator. Humidity levels inside a heated propagator can get very high with high levels of condensation inside the propagator leading to seeds, young plants and cuttings rotting. This is especially a problem at higher propagation temperatures.
By opening the large vents in the Vitopod propagator gardeners can lower the humidity in the propagator quickly without having to remove the whole lid which would waste electricity and potentially expose the plants to too much cold.
You can be confident that the Vitopod provides the perfect environment for propagating seeds, cuttings and over-wintering plants.
Heated propagators are especially useful for growing vegetables because they enable gardeners to start seeds before the air temperature has reached the temperature required by the seeds and this means plants can get off to a head start. This is especially useful if growing vegetables as seeds started earlier can be harvested sooner in the season and harvested for longer – resulting in bigger harvests.
In the past many gardeners started seeds in a heated greenhouse or on a heated bench, but with rising electricity costs this isn’t feasible anymore. A heated bench is useful, but the warmth quickly dissipates so the heater is working constantly, whereas a heated propagator has sides and a lid which retain the heat.
