VitaLink PlantStart is a unique complete one-part feed designed to give your plants the best possible start. This balanced formulation of essential macronutrients and chelated micronutrients, especially the perfect ratio of boron to calcium, has been proven to promote rapid root development and vigorous early growth. The addition of both fulvic and humic acids aids in nutrient uptake from the moment of root emergence. Vitamin B1 stimulates the root growth in seedlings and cuttings. Better roots mean better nutrient and water uptake, resulting in more vigorous growth and increased resistance to environmental stress.
VitaLink PlantStart is suitable for use with all types of media. It reduces the risk of damage through overfeeding by providing a low EC solution whilst still providing your plants with all the nutrients they require.
Sowing seeds/rooting cuttings – Use at 3-4ml/L when pre-soaking propagation sponges/plugs prior to sowing seed or taking cuttings. If taking delicate and valuable cuttings we recommend the use of a quality rooting gel to further guarantee success.
For rooted seedlings and cuttings – Use at 6-8ml/L once your cuttings/seedlings have successfully rooted into propagation sponges/plugs. Once you notice plants in plugs/sponges shooting multiple roots we would recommend incorporating VitaLink RootStim into your feed program.
Always shake the bottle well for 20 seconds prior to use as the humic acid will naturally settle over time.
A grower’s hint: Many growers still give cuttings and seedlings a weak dose of adult feed. Please don’t do this, as cuttings and seedlings not only need a weaker feed, they also need the right ratio of key nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
