The AeroNT was designed for the production of young plants for rooting stations in Europe. The product was introduced into the Canadian market about 7 years ago and has been a developing success ever since. The possibility of watering the plants often, in combination with a fast dry down of the plug, creates the ideal circumstances to steer the growth of the plant, while the roots of the plants are never too wet. The dibble hole of the plug is filled with fine, soft peat which ensures optimal contact of the cutting with the plug.
The AeroNT: fast development of callus, optimal root growth, great root architecture and less problems with mold.

*Based upon grower feedback
AeroNT plugs are built by blending high-quality peat with coir fibers, perlite and a binder. The binder stabilizes the plug, which results in consistent air-filled porosity, water holding capacity and dry down throughout the rooting-period of the plant. During the production process, a dibble (sticking) hole is punched into the plug and filled up with a fine peat. The result is a perfect plug and tray system for rooting your cuttings.
Directions for Use
The AeroNT trays arrive pre-filled and ready to use. Its dibble holes are filled up with a fine, soft peat that guarantees an optimal contact of the cutting with the plug.
It is important NOT to water AeroNT plugs before sticking because this would “close” the holes. The AeroNT plugs continue to dry after rooting, and therefore, it is important to closely monitor the plants.
To maintain sticking speed, make sure that you have the tray with the 2 holes towards you. The holes will always be situated at 12, 4 and 8 o’clock.
For large-leaved cuttings, AeroNT plugs can be distributed in the trays in custom patterns. Ask your sales representative for more information.
