Cuttings Propagators

Our award winning Hydropod has been featured in Grow Your Own Magazine and on BBC Gardeners World. The Hydropod Cuttings Propagators works by gently misting the cuttings from the base to ensure water is delivered directly to the roots, ensuring maximum root health.

This is because the misting reduces the risk of cuttings drying-out or becoming waterlogged. which maximises their growth speed. Not sure which propagator to go for? Our gardening experts can help you out, so get in touch today.

Propagating plants from cuttings is one of the most rewarding and satisfying things you can do as a gardener. Spotting one of your favourite plants that looks fantastic and is growing perfectly and taking a sample to clone is a testament to your skills. To give them the best lease of life in their fresh start, more and more gardeners are turning to cuttings propagators for a boost.

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 regularly 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 and nutrients around the base of the plants has the added advantage of encouraging the roots to ‘grow-out’ quickly to access the water and nutrients. 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.
