I have been growing in lava rock for the past 25+yrs and always used clones. Finally ordered some seeds and would like to know if anyone has any suggestions on once germinated, a good procedure on what to put them in to prepare them to go in to the lava rock. Clones i have used before have been cloned in coco but its always a pain to slowly clean the coco off the roots to transplant in lava rock without damaging the roots and shocking the plant. I was planning on germinating then putting them in root riot cubes but not sure if its a good idea to put the root riot cube in the lava rock once ready to transplant. I guess I grow old school, ebb and flow and lava rock because I never see anyone growing in lava rock anymore. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
What is lava rock?
@anon78295680 its the red rock that people use for landscaping
Rapid rooter seems like easy answer. I germ using paper towel method, place in rooter, then tear a little piece off to cover seed.
@dbrn32 so it would be ok to transplant the rapid router right in to the lava rock when ready?
For sure! Just wait til you see roots trying to pop out of them.
cool, thnx @dbrn32 my 1st run with seeds so hoping all goes well. Anxious to get them going!!
