SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine — Quick Plug North America, designer and manufacturer of stabilized growing media products, announces the launch of its newest product, the CatEyePlug™ for easy transplanting of tissue culture starts and pre-rooted cuttings.
The “eye” of the plug allows for the precise and rapid placement of small and delicate plant material, such as tissue culture, micro cuttings and other hard to start plants.
The plug’s unique eye-shaped dibble makes it possible to open the plug with one hand. Once squeezed, the CatEyePlug™ opens and creates the perfect spot for the placement of your young plant. When you let go of the plug, it closes and holds the tissue culture plant perfectly in position.
“Quick Plug North America works with several companies that produce tissue culture plants,” said Edwin Dijkshoorn, CEO of Quick Plug North America. “Following the successful launch of our ZenPlug™ for large tissue culture roots structures, the CatEyePlug™ is designed for small delicate root systems. We are pleased to add the CatEyePlug™ to our line of products designed specifically to meet the needs of growers using tissue culture.”
The stabilized growing media and the unique way of opening the plug makes it easy to place the TC plant instead of forcing it into the rooting media. This product increase efficiencies and improves propagation yields.
Like the FlexiPlug® and ZenPlug™, the CatEyePlug™ provides young plants with the optimal environment for root growth: excellent water holding capacity, optimal aeration and even dry down.
Quick Plug North America will be showcasing the CatEyePlug™ at Cultivate’17, the horticulture industry’s premier tradeshow in Columbus, Ohio from July 15-18. You can see it at booth #2955 or visit www.ca.quickplug.global for more information.
