Precise, height adjustable and reliable. The Vitopod is the most respected and popular heated propagator available and the only height adjustable propagator around.
It's available in two length / wattage options (55cm long is 50 watts and 111cm is 100 watts) and three height options (single, double and triple), height extensions can be added at any time.
Why Choose The Vitopod:
Our Vitopod Heated propagator has won many awards including BBC Gardeners World 'Best Buy' and Grow Your Own magazine 'Most Innovative Product' because it provides the perfect environment for seeds, cuttings and over-wintered plants.
- Spacious - The 100 watt Vitopod fits 12x half seed trays or 55 pots! The 50 watt fits 6 half seed trays or 25 seed pots.
- 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 24cm tall option, or as double or triple height. Even better, height extensions can be bought at any time. Each extension is 15cm tall, so you can protect taller plants without heating your greenhouse. It effectively turns into a mini 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 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 lids and sides are treated to prevent yellowing.
- Extended 2 year warranty only when bought from Greenhouse Sensation

Optional Extra - Lights
If you want to go a step further with getting the very best for your plants you can add the set of propagation lights which includes a light connection kit for attaching the lights to the Vitopod.
The light connection kit securely attaches to the ends of the Vitopod and holds the two lights above the Vitopod lids. When you add a height extension to the Vitopod, simply move the connectors up. Using lights like this is far easier than attaching them to the greenhouse roof!
Propagation lights are useful for preventing legginess and yellowing in seedlings and young plants if you like to get a head start on the growing season. We recommend that you have the lights on in the morning and/or evening to extend daylight hours up to 12 hours.
The lights can be switched on and off independently of the propagator.
The lights are housed in a nanotech enhanced reflector that reflects 99.9% of light and diffuses it deep into the leaves. The lamps typically have a life of 10,000 hours and can be replaced indepndelty of the reflectors.

The Vitopod electric propagator delivers better germination rates, more effctive 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, so you can provide the temperature required by your particular plants. 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 stable, gentle temperature control results in higher germination rates, faster growth and stronger plants.
The Vitopod delivers heat evenly so every seed tray receives the same level of heat. This even heat means that propagation success rate is higher because all of the seedlings or cuttings receive the correct temperature. Other electric 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.
The humidity vents in the Vitopod propagator lids and sides allow you to release the condensation that builds up without removing the whole lid which would waste electricity and expose the plants to too much cold. High levels of condensation can lead to seeds, young plants and cuttings rotting. This is especially a problem at higher propagation temperatures.
You can be confident that the Vitopod provides the perfect environment for propagating seeds, cuttings and over-wintering plants.
