Complete overhead mist propagation kit for 1M wide nursery benches with mist lines suspended above the bench – keeps the propagation bench clear of obstructions and allows the use of foil heat mats. This kit caters for bench lengths of up to 10m.
Mist propagation is the professional way of rooting cuttings and germinating seedlings using spray to keep the leaves of the plants moist. Combined with bottom heat for a warm root system, the mist prop keeps the leaves of the plants cool and moist. Wet leaf sensor ensures that the mist bursts are weather responsive.
Mist propagation kits consist of a controller and a wet leaf sensor. The wet leaf is designed to mimic the characteristics of a real plant leaf, so when it is dry water is sprayed over the area until the wet leaf detects enough water has fallen. Then the system is turned off until the wet leaf has dried again. In this way, the system is completely weather responsive.
Weaning capability allows the duration between spray bursts to be progressively increased to get the plants used to not being under the spray and to prepare them for moving out of the mist prop system.
Overhead mist propagation kit includes: mist wean controller, pipework for 1m wide bed, overhead straining wire, nozzles, glue and solenoid valve.
Available in lengths between 1 – 10M. (Extra 1M runs available – please contact the sales team)
