x-stream heat propagator
Seeds or cuttings are placed on the X- Stream heated propagator base using any propagation medium, the desired temperature can be set to within 1°C using the digital thermostat. The thermostat probe is placed inside the propagator to read and maintain the desired temperature.
The X-Stream heat lid sits on top of the heated base and maintains the heat and humidity required for successful propagation. As plants develop, the vents in the lid are opened to reduce humidity and gradually harden the plants off, ready for transplanting.
Heat is dispersed evenly across the base, unlike most heated propagators there are no hot or cold spots; so no uneven growth. Temperature is fully adjustable from 5°C to 30°C; allowing growers to adjust the propagation environment to suit their specific grow area.
X-Stream Heat propagators now come with a SunBlaster light fitting lid.
why they are great
The combination of a large heater mat, a humidity retaining lid and a digital thermostat means that the optimal environment for seed germination and growth can be created and maintained. This improves both the success rate of seed germination and produces healthier seedlings.

hints and tips
Place the thermostat probe in the specific area of the propagator where you wish to measure the temperature. To set root temperature, place the probe on the base of the propagator. To set air temperature, suspend the probe in the propagator through one of the adjustable vents.
To reach and maintain desired temperature sooner, avoid placing a heated propagator on the floor.
If setting desired air temperature, be aware that the temperature of the base (and therefore, the roots) will be 1°C – 2°C above the temperature of the air.
