The Most Effective Way of Propagating Your Plants Using Propagation Balls
If you want to have an endless supply of free plants without starting from scratch, plant propagation is the most obvious answer. For those who are new to this, plant propagation is the process of creating new plants whether through sexual or asexual propagation. Sexual reproduction is the union of the pollen and egg through pollination. It works by drawing from the genes of two parents in order to create a new, third plant. On the other hand, asexual propagation involves taking a part of one parent plant and helping it to regenerate itself into a new plant. The new plant will be genetically identical to the parent plant. This type of propagation uses the vegetative parts of a plant whether its stems, roots, or leaves.
For faster and environment friendly way of plant propagation, experts suggest the use of reusable plant rooting balls. This is a lot safer for the parent plant and it will not cause any damage at all. Plant rooting balls like the one made by Thriving World is created using a Cutting Globe Design to help your cuttings achieve stronger roots and reproduce more mature trees faster than the normal spread method.
The Cutting Globe is basically a ball – like design that can be opened in two halves. The space in each half is filled with your choice of rooting medium and then placed around the branch you want to propagate before securing it with ordinary zip ties. But the use of zip ties is optional because the Cutting Globe is designed with stoppers and corner blocks that interlock with each other to securely attached the propagator in place even without a stem underneath.
This innovative garden product is very easy to use. Simply make small cuts on plant bark, add rooting hormone, enclose Cutting Globe filled with choice of growing medium around the wound and watch for roots. When roots start to appear around 4 to 12 weeks (depending on plant and conditions), simply cut it away from parent plant and you have a brand new plant start. And because this propagation ball is made from durable, eco-friendly materials, it be used repeatedly so you can propagate more plants as much as you want.
Thriving World has been selling various innovative garden products and eco-friendly items for years. The company also plants 1 tree with every purchase to help fight against deforestation.
