Rockwool cubes
« : Huhtikuu 17, 2005, 23:40:44 ip »
Hey!

I got some more seeds to sprout now! Thank you all for the great tips.  Some of the new seedlings sprouted in Rockwool cubes.  Now I got some more questions...

Do I have to transplant them to soil as soon as they sprout? Or should I wait a bit longer? (they opened their seed-leaves today)

Another question is, how do I transplant them from the cubes? Should I just pull them off the cubes? I'm afraid to tear them apart if I do so...

Cheers,
Luca.

Thanks for your quick answer!

I've removed the excess of rockwool and planted the seedling with only a small patch of rockwool and it seems to be growing happily in a pot now :-)

My seeds in rockwool cubes just sprouted now, I plan to let them make good roots and than give them in ebb&flood system. But I have a question about watering the cubes. How much is the right amount? Or can I have some extra water in the box where the cubes are?

thanks

Hmm.. some extra water isn't that bad, but I think I wouldn't soak the small seedlings all the time without any circulation of the water.

I usually keep some extra water in the box when germinating to spread the temperature around the germinating box.

Hope it helps!

Don't let them dry!! Small seedlings will die quite easily!

Rockwools are great ´cos they maintain the moisture for suprisingly long period of time.
