Description

Oasis cubes / grow cubes are high density high drainage grow media for hydroponics farming. They provide more than 90% germination rate and are easy to handle.

Sheet of 20 consist of 20 x 156 i.e. 3120 cubes.

Inorganic & Sterile Growing Medium
A Superior Medium For Rooting Cuttings
Encourages Faster Initial Rooting & Its Firmness Is Guaranteed
Provides 20% Air Space When Saturated – Absorbs nutrient solution while retaining plenty of oxygen for rapid root growth!

Ready-to-use in numerous configurations right out of the box
The consistency of the media creates more uniform rooting success
Superior cutting hydration: Less need for misting simplifies growing process
Low Cation exchange properties: Improves the speed, precision and availability of nutrients
Sterile media arrives pathogen-free, to help reduce disease and insect problems
Roots remain undisturbed during transplant, eliminating plant shock
Easy to separate cubes

 

This growing medium is specially engineered for the hydroponics seedling production of vegetables and herbs as it is having lower density and higher drainage foam. The higher drainage design helps to maintain an ideal air to water balance, even under heavy watering conditions. The enhanced drainage also keeps the top of the media drier, helping to minimize algae growth.

 

Steps for Propagation:

  1. Place sheets into trays:

If your primary watering method uses overhead irrigation, use a solid-Bottom tray with drain holes. However, if your primary method uses sub-irrigation, use a web-bottom tray.

Note: DO NOT use a solid tray without drain holes because excess water needs to be drained freely.

  1. Place seed(s) in dibble hole:

Seeds can be placed manually or via mechanical equipment in the single- or multi-seed holes when the sheet is either dry or wet.

  1. Saturate Growing Medium:

For optimal results, sheets should be completely saturated, without any dry areas, in water soluble Fertilizer 16-8-24 @ 0.5g per litre. Saturation is best accomplished through a combination of float saturating and overhead watering.

  • If the seeds are sown while sheet is dry, lightly water the top of the sheets to set the seed into the dibble holes.
  • Set the trays of sheet into a tub of complete nutrient solution and let the foam completely saturate until the growing medium or sheet is slightly below the water surface.

Note: DO NOT force the growing medium under water.

  • Following sub-irrigation, overhead  irrigate  the  sheets  using  a  coarse  water  breaker  for

Approximately 1 minute, with 1.3 to 1.5 gallons (5 to 6 litres) of water.

  1. Germination:

In  the  case  of  lettuce  or  most  herbs,  place  the  sheets  in  a  dark  room  at temperatures of between 18.8 to 20 ̊C. The trays need to be moved from the dark room to the greenhouse at 48 hours after the initiation of the germination process. Leaving the trays beyond the

48 hours can lead to stretching of the seedlings. During seedling production, pull the shade curtains in the afternoon hours during the summer months. Provide supplemental lighting during the winter months.

Tip: To make it more convenient to handle at transplant time, consider using a sharp knife to cut the sheets into smaller sections.

  1. Transplant:

Wait until you have at least two true leaves and tap root coming out of the bottom of the matrix. Typically, the seedlings are ready for transplant in 12 to 14 days during the summer and 16 to 18 days during the winter.   Separation occurs by using a top-down motion.

Storage:

Store unused sheet in a dry location away from direct sunlight.
