rootcup - Grow New Plants From Plant Cuttings

These cool new rootcups help to easily clone, er, grow new plants from plant root and stem clippings, avocado plants from seeds, flowers from bulbs, succulents, airplants, and more. Just place a plant cutting, seed, or bulb in the lid of the rootcup, fill the cup with water, place it in a sunny spot, and soon you will see healthy roots.

The rootcups feature uniquely shaped lids that capture evaporating water and keep the leaves dry and sundrenched, roots properly submerged and protected from the light, and slots to easily slide them out when ready for soil planting. The rootcups are available in two sizes (regular rootcup for cuttings less than 2" and BIGrootcup for bigger cuttings up to 5") and are made from super-durable, flexible elastomer that is highly UV resistant, nonporous, waterproof, flame-resistant and dishwasher/boiling safe. Great solution.
