Succulents

Succulents derive their name from the Greek word for sap, ‘succus’. The plants are able to retain a large volume of water so they can survive in arid regions. There are many species, including echeveria, rhipsalis and sempervivum. Nurseries produce a wide range of succulents as house or garden plants or for planters.
 
What is the challenge you face as a succulent grower?
Succulents by nature often have a somewhat more extensive root system. The shoots for propagation are also quite coarse, making it difficult to plant a shoot in a fixed plug. Which is why many shoots are planted in loosely filled trays with substrate. Once the plant has formed enough roots, it can be potted up for the next phase. Many growers are looking for ways to deliver faster and automate the cultivation process.
 
Benefits of the Growcoon for succulents
For succulent growers, the Growcoon is an interesting alternative to the existing methods. 

  • The Growcoon is easily incorporated in automated systems, while you as a grower can still use loosely filled substrate.
  • This means shoot propagators can deliver or pot-up shoots 7 weeks earlier
  • Succulents grow more uniformly after potting up: roots develop more naturally and healthier, as the root system is not damaged during handling
