Fibre-Neth® Twin 3.0 is a Fibre-Neth® plug, specially developed for the propagation of Phalaenopsis. The plug makes it possible for propagators to sort their Phalaenopsis and propagate plants separately.
Fibre-Neth® Twin 3.0 consists of two parts that are made of a special Phalaenopsis substrate based on coco. The tissue-culture plant is clamped between the two parts, which are then inserted into a basket of biodegradable plastic. The baskets are placed in a 72-, 60- or 50-hole tray.
When the young plants have grown enough they can be sorted.
Obturo® is a plant plug that can be adjusted to meet customer requirements. It offers all the flexibility needed to perfect the cultivation process.
Obturo® has been specifically developed to facilitate easy rooting. The plants’ roots will really quickly penetrate the entire plug, ensuring the very best growth results. The unique composition of the substrate combined with a binder makes it easy to rewet the ObturoFlex. Obturo® plugs can be processed directly by hand, but the plugs are also extremely suitable for automatic handling.
The PressTop is a worthy successor to the traditional compressed peat block. The new component, white peat, is an important part of the excellent physical structure.
To preserve stability of shape, the Van der Knaap Groep has exclusive access to a binding agent which enhances the properties of the white peat giving it a higher air content and great rewetting properties, even after drying out.
The binder is mixed in when dry, enabling delivery in a range of packaging types.
The binding agent’s long shelf life means that PressTop is unequalled in the market.
In addition, the lower weight of white peat in comparison to black peat gives a significant transport advantage.
