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, heroponic 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 40/65 Q Plug is the big brother to our 40/40 offering. The 40/65 provides increased volume which equates to more time in the cell.

For a nursery, giving your customers more time in the cell without sacrificing plant health can boost your reputation.  The 40/65 will also fit floating hydroponic rafts, its unique shape will allow a portion of the plug to protrude from the raft surface, reducing wilting caused by poor airflow. 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.
