THESE ARE PLANTLETS GROWING IN GEL AND MUST BE ACCLIMATED USING THESE STEPS:

Step 1- DO NOT do anything to the culture for 1-2 days to allow them to adjust to their new temperatures

Step 2- Open the package & wash out the jelly as thoroughly as possible. A small paintbrush can be gently used to assist with the cleaning process. 

Step 3- Soak them in a rooting hormone if available. This step is not necessary for success but it will increase the root growth and get you off a good start

Step 4- Plant your cultures in the medium of your choice. We recommend a chunky blend of coco husk & perlite, any well-draining soil will do in a pinch

Step 5- Place them into a closed package (container or plastic bag) while allowing light to pass through. Place under a grow light or in a bright area out of direct sunlight

Step 6- Leave plants covered for the first 7 days.  The following 7 to 10 days slowly expose plants to ambient air. Each day exposing the plants to slightly more air until fully acclimated. 

It is up to the customer to be able to provide proper acclimation to the plantlets. Ed's Plant Shop will not be held liable for plantlets that do not survive acclimation. By purchasing this product, you agree to these terms
