Once your cuttings have rooted through their rooting-cube, it’s time to put them into a larger rockwool cube before transplanting them into your hydroponic system. The Hugo Block is one of largest size rockwool cubes that you can get, giving your plant lots of space to root into. Hugo Block can be used to grow plants in from start to finish or can placed into an NFT or other grow-system.

How the 6-Inch Large-Hole Hugo Block Rockwool Cube works:
Rockwool holds lots of water and air for fast rooting and growth. Our 6-Inch Hugo Block Rockwool Cubes are great for growing your rooted cuttings in from start to finish or for before transplanting into your hydroponics system. The Rockwool is finely spun and of high quality and the hole in the top will take almost any 1-inch size rooting-cube, including 1-inch rockwool cubes, fleximix plugs and Jiffy 7 soil plugs. Hugo Blocks are great in an NFT system where their large base will help prevent plants from falling over. Hugo Blocks provide lots of space for plants to root into
Using the 6-Inch Large-Hole Hugo Block Rockwool Cube
For best results, soak the Hugo Block rockwool cubes in weak nutrient solution which has been pH adjusted to about 5.5 and leave overnight. Before use, shake out excess nutrient solution. Rooted cuttings can then be placed directly into the pre-soaked 6-Inch Hugo Block rockwool cube. The cuttings can then be grown into larger plants. When roots appear on the outside of the Hugo Block rockwool cubes, they can then be transplanted into your hydroponics system.
