Fab 4 Electric Windowsill Propagator
This handy propagator is designed for the keen gardener looking to grow a range of seed varieties. The size of the electric heated base lends itself to use on a windowsill or on a spare room table top. Featuring 4 independent mini vented propagators which allow for added user flexibility, each 17cm (6.75") Long by 10cm (4") Wide.
The heated base contains a 10 Watt carbon fibre element for even heat distribution. This unit is not thermostatically controlled and is designed to increase the ambient compost temperature by around 8° Centigrade.
This unit is ideally situated in a position which gives plenty of light without strong sunshine, avoid south or west facing windows.
First steps in propagation:
The three ingredients to achieve successful propagation from seed or from cuttings are: heat, light and water. The heated base and clear crystal cover in this unit will help you get the right heat and light conditions. It is critical that you keep the compost moist at all times.
Also includes step-by-step guides for successful seed propagation and cuttings propagation.
Successful propagation requires heat. As the ideal time to propagate is during the colder months in preparation for the new season , it can be difficult to achieve the even heat required, particularly at night. An electrically heated base is therefore the ideal piece of equipment to greatly increase your chances of success.
This unit has been designed for use within the house where the average temperature will not fall below 10˚C. It is not intended for use in unheated greenhouses.
Please note that the electric heater is designed to gently transfer heat to the compost – it will feel warm rather than hot to the touch.
