The Bookplug is specially developed for the propagation of Phalaenopsis. The plug is made from specially selected coco or peat substrate. The composition and fertilisation of the plugs are tailored to the wishes of the customer.

Due to its unique design, the plug makes it easier to place the tissue-culture plant. The excellent connection between the plug and the tray ensures optimal water distribution.

There are two types: Bookplug 1.0 and 2.0. When using the Bookplug 1.0 the plug is placed in a basket after placing the tissue-culture plant in the plug. The baskets are then placed in a 72-hole tray. This allows the young plants to be sorted easily into a 50-hole tray after the first propagation phase. The Bookplug 2.0 is very suitable for direct placement in a 60-hole tray (without the use of a basket).
