Fibre web design:
The special web design provide a fine protection for the roots during the time on benches before plant out. Roots will penetrate the paper and continue growth after transplant.
The product is widely used for organic crops.
We recommend this paper for use in propagation for a short time on the benches before plant out.
You should use a low tray to let the air circulation pass freely. It is also recommended not to keep the pots in an all-wet environment until plant out.
