Oasis® Rootcubes® Growing Medium
Professional growers have been using Oasis foam products for years and now you can enjoy the same reliable results from this remarkable product.
Rootcubes are designed for starting seeds of plants that will later be transplanted to either soil or a soilless medium. Completely pH neutral, Rootcubes incorporate a two-week supply of starter fertilizer right in the cube. All you have to do is saturate them with water (they hold 40 times their weight), drop your seed in the prepunched holes, keep them moist and wait for germination.
When seedlings are of transplant size, simply cut the individual cubes with a knife and transplant into your medium.
Oasis Rootcubes also provide an excellent clean start for rooting cuttings. Flowering spring plant cuttings root well in sheets of the ROOTCUBE® Growing Medium. The engineered foam product has a balanced air to water ratio that enhances rooting performance for this crop type. Vegetative cuttings such as New Guinea Impatiens, Fuchsia, and Verbena get off to a good start in this product.
They also work especially well for perennial propagation as perennials typically have a tendency to rot or have a long rooting time. Since Oasis Rootcubes are very forgiving on watering, being able to keep the plant wet, without total saturation of media, minimizes the root rot effect.This growing media provides faster crop turnover for most growers.
Various sheet sizes of the OASIS ROOTCUBES® are available to accommodate small to large cutting sizes and spacing requirements.
