Q Plug is an all-around propagation plug designed for any style of growing system. Your Q Plug can be transplanted into loose mix, row crop or incorporated into most any hydroponic, aeroponic or aquaponic application. Q Plug is engineered to maintain its shape throughout the life-cycle of your crop with minimal slouching of material to not only make it one of the cleanest plug options on the market but reducing costly expenditures in maintenance of clogged filtration systems.

The porosity Q Plug provides to the root zone can help in stronger root development for healthier plants and increases in yield. The 40/40 Q Plug is widely recognized and the most mimicked plug shape. An industry standard, the 40/40 Q Plug will provide just enough media for ample root development prior to transplanting with porosity and aeration unmatched by any of the competition.

Available in an ⅛” x ¼” dibble designed for smaller or normal sized cuttings. ¼”x ¼” size dibble, most recommended for seed or larger caliper cuttings.
