Clean & Healthy Clones

We predominantly propagate in Ellepot soil plugs to give our clones the fastest growth rate at initial transplant. There is no transplant shock using Ellepot when going to a soil or potting soil based growing medium. If you need a specific medium please give us a call.

Rigorous testing for Hop Latent Viroid (HLVd)

All of our elite mother stock have been triple verified free from HLVd. We perform two tests in-house, waiting at least one month between tests and sampling both roots and leaves. After a second negative result we send samples off for PCR testing. Inquire for more information on our testing procedures. 

How We Prevent Fusarium

  • Our rooting medium is less conducive to fusarium because, after our initial watering, we don’t water again until the clones have roots. Fusarium generally occurs due to over-saturation of the rooting media, which is very easy to do in Rockwool or Peat Plugs.
  • We cook our rooting medium at 130 degrees for 20 minutes to ensure that we are starting clean. Then we inoculate the rooting medium with 5 different strains of bacillus which are beneficial to protect against diseases like fusarium.

Our Strains

Source Nursery delivers well-rooted, hardened-off clones ready to be planted. Every clone is inspected for imperfections to ensure you’re getting the best quality. Our strains are updated every season.
