Mint propagation for customer’s orders is accomplished within our laboratory. Lab conditions offer controlled lighting and temperatures, which allow us to rapidly increase the needed quantity of plants under sterile conditions. Once these small, uniform “plantlets” have grown leaves and roots, they are moved to our greenhouses for finishing.
The plantlets are transplanted into sterile, soil-less potting mix in standard 98-cell nursery flats. After approximately 4 to 6 weeks, they are ready for shipping. Plant height above the root ball is approximately 3 to 5 inches, with a root mass that is 1 ¼” x 1 ½” x 2 inches.
All mint transplants produced at our facility are virus tested and certified as clean rootstock.
