Directions for use

Propagating cuttings:

Step 1: Fill container with Yates Specialty Potting Mix Cuttings & Seeds, water well and allow to drain.

Step 2: Select fresh cuttings, 5 - 10 cm in length, from healthy plants.

Step 3: Prepare cuttings by removing the leaves from the bottom half of the stem and trim as required.

Step 4: Make a hole in the mix with a pencil or dibbler to the required depth (usually 2 - 4 cm).

Step 5: Dip the cut end into a suitable root growth stimulant such as Yates Plant Cutting Powder, Yates Clonex Red or Purple Rooting Gel and carefully insert into hole. Firm around it gently.

Step 6: Water well and allow to drain.

Step 7: Place in a sheltered position, out of direct sunlight. To maintain humidity and warmth, enclose the container in a plastic bag or mini greenhouse. Keep moist, not wet.

Step 8: Once roots have formed, remove cover and gradually harden off the plant before transplanting.

 

Raising seed in containers:

Step 1: Fill container with Yates Specialty Potting Mix Cuttings & Seeds to 1 cm below rim of the container.

Step 2: Level and gently firm the mix.

Step 3: Sow seed as directed and lightly cover with a thin layer of the mix to the planting depth specified.

Step 5: Place in a warm, light position out of direct sunlight. Do not allow mix to dry out.

Step 6: Once germinated, gradually move the seedlings into areas with more light to harden off.
