& How They Work

To fill out a large pot quickly, you need stored energy. There is no cheating Mother Nature. Strong plugs are built with energy supplied by heat, fertilizer, water, time and care; you can see that energy when you hold one of our plugs in your hand.

  1. HEAVIER CROWNS AND MORE STOLONS
    Heavy crowns are a sign of abundant energy. Multiple growing points in one plug perform better than several small starts placed in a pot.

  2. STRONG VERTICAL ROOTS
    Channeled by the ribs of our Star-32 trays, the primary roots grow downward and avoid wrapping around the cell.

  3. BIGGER ROOTS DOWN DEEP
    A deeper plug puts the actively growing roots into the heart of a large container, where they will grow out much faster.

  4. FINER ROOTS GROWING THROUGHOUT THE MEDIA
    Feeder roots knit the plug together. They gather the water and nutrients needed to store energy for the upcoming spring.

  5. LARGE SOIL MASS
    In an imperfect world, a large plug buffers transplant shocks, scheduling mistakes, temperature fluctuations and watering irregularities that will stunt smaller plugs.

  6. LONG PLUG LENGTH
    Our deep PowerPlug can easily be used for direct planting into landscape applications.
