Root It Plugs don’t have a netting at the base. This means that the tap root can grow naturally and unrestricted out of the base of the plug and so helps to avoid root strangulation. The plugs are held together with a paper wrap which is biodegradable and will not fall apart. This also allows the roots to penetrate the sides and still keep the plug in shape. All you need to do is simply add water, watch them swell and then use to grow your cuttings or seeds. So for a growing media that stays in place and doesn’t fall apart and for roots capable of penetrating side walls without the plug falling apart, go for Root It Plugs.
