is automatic Mist Propagation ?
is the technique of keeping the foliage of cuttings covered
with a thin film of moisture and the growing medium damp but
not wet. Our electronic misting controllers do this
automatically by sensing weather conditions and adjusting the
misting rate accordingly. Healthier growth results because:
Maximum light and warmth can be allowed into the glasshouse
without "burning" the foliage.
leaf temperatures reduce dehydration.
humidity is maintained in glasshouse or igloo.
What is "Weather Watcher" ?
developed our "Weather Watcher" sensor to overcome problems with
the evaporative leaf sensors—primarily the build up of residue
on the sensor due to the evaporative process. The "WW" sensor
measures both light intensity and air temperature within the
growing area and adjusts the misting rate as these 2 factors
vary. Light is the overriding factor so that at night misting
normally stops. Advantages are:
- No "leaf"
or delicate tipping arm sensors to clutter your bench or
adjusts to weather conditions- no clocks to set.
sensor control—you set a rate to suit your crop/glasshouse
by quality of water.
Two Models Available
We have discontinued production of
the single station misting unit. See below for

max) bronze solenoid valve built into the unit.
