Rootcup Helps Gardeners Grow New Plants from Cuttings

Have you tried to propagate plant cuttings, but they didn’t take root in soil? Rootcup helps promote root growth so that your cuttings will thrive when planted. The patent-pending design protects a cutting’s roots from light, which helps them grow, the lid holds the cutting’s leaves above water to prevent rotting, and the shape captures evaporating water so cuttings need less attention. Rootcup is made from a super-durable non-toxic elastomer, and it can be sterilized in a dishwasher or boiling water for reuse.

    This an idea that is fairly clever but the same results can be cheaply conceived by sticking your cuttings into a cheap travel coffee mug. Insert the plant into the small hole and fill it with water. This will allow you to water the stem yet cover it from sunlight. (Save your money on this product).
