if your going to give them a try, get them with the tray for the first time like this

it's a little cheaper to buy the replacement plugs, but still not cheap like seed starting potting mix

 

i find they work fantastic for seedlings or cuttings. they allow you to bottom water the whole tray at once, and they wick up water as they need it. It's kinda spongy like and provides a great ratio of air to water for the root zone

 

here's an old pic (2016) of a yellow Bubblegum cutting after 5 days

when i tried them out in the Aerogarden, i had to cut them to fit, but they worked great in there too

Very impressive list GIP ... I wish you all the very best for your season ... you won't be disappointed with the NeBru7 if you haven't grown it before one of my firm favourites which I grow each season

ha, i wish i would/could say it was no work...

 

even if i were to only grow 1 kind, there is work involved... (i'm sure you know this) but i am stating this for others reading as well.

 

while peppers potentially grow like weeds, I have learned through the years, that they all have their slight differences. 

Sometimes it is these differences that keeps me intrigued, wanting to learn more, and willing to try the same varietal again, maybe even in a different medium.

well some have done better than others, but most of them seem like they didnt even really want to slow down  :party:  thermostat is set at 62 and they are getting 1000W HPS and a couple CFL's and a small LED for the corners 

lots of new growth, and some winter fruits  :dance:  

 

 

thanks for stopping by to check out my Glog

That's a great big list!

 

Very nice germ pics!

 

Here I was, thinking that with a list like you have, you'll have your hands full - and then you have the OW's on top of that!!!!!

 

You're in for a hella good season, I can tell! ;)

 

All The Best, and look forward to seeing all those wild species! I didn't realise there were so many around!

Pedal to the metal, GIP!  I'm going to have to

give the rapid rooters a try.  I want to try rock

wool, too in the 2019 season.

 

OW's look great - will be interested to see how

you get them ready for summer.

   :cheers:   Good luck going forward...

I've seen rapidrooters in action, I should have spent the extra money and used them.

Got the plugs working great couple more question GIP how long can they stay in the plugs and once I transplant them do I have to remove the plant from the plug or can they stay in the plug with potting mix to fill the new cup or pot I put them in?

The roots will be coming out of all sides of the plug, I doubt you could remove the plant

I've tried both Root Riot plugs (same thing, different brand) and rockwool.
FWIW, I liked the plugs a lot more. Easier to use and better success rates.
