It's a great way to restock your garden for free and the Hydropod cuttings propagator is used by beginners and professionals, because it produces healthy plants, reliably and quickly.

Theres nothing more rewarding than growing plants from cuttings. By splitting and dividing your plants in a Hydropod Cuttings propagator you can re-stock your garden cost effectively with your favourite plants.
The Hydropod cuttings propagator increases cuttings propagation success rates and speeds up plants root growth by getting the moisture balance right for you, preventing damping-off and mould.
Simply take your plant cuttings and place them in the sponge discs in the Hydropod, then add water. A constant mist will be sprayed over the base of your cuttings to maintain perfect moisture levels without water-logging.
A plant cutting loses water through its leaves but has no root system by which it can absorb water, it can take up a small amount through its base. In our Hydropod Propagator cuttings are misted; this mist lowers the leaf temperature, creates a humid atmosphere and reduces the amount of water lost from the leaves - so cuttings are kept moist but without ever becoming water-logged (water-logging leads to rotting and mould).
The constant spray of water around the base of the plants has the added advantage of encouraging the roots to ‘grow-out’ quickly to access the water.
The lid retains warmth and the optional heater maintains an even temperature so that you don't lose plants to low temperatures.
The vent in the lid enables you to lower the humidity as the cuttings grow.
