The SunFlex System: Getting Hardwood Trees To Survive, Thrive & Succeed – The First Time, Every Time
The SunFlex System is the "growers choice" to get hardwood seedlings Survive, Thrive and Succeed, the first time, every time! The SunFlex System combines superior seedling protection and greenhouse growth benefits of a scientifically engineered grow tube and reinforced fiberglass support stake. The SunFlex™ Seedling System works for you and your hardwood seedlings 4 growth-‐ maximizing & money-‐saving ways: 1. Superior Greenhouse Benefits – Unlike traditional tree tubes and tree-‐ shelters, SunFlex Grow Tubes are twin-‐walled for light diffusion and translucent to growth-‐optimizing sunlight trees and shrubs need. SunFlex is packed with advanced greenhouse technology to stimulate phytochrome to grow the whole plant from roots to shoots – necessary to get your new seedlings off and running with the sun. 2. 24/7 Protection – SunFlex "grows” your seedlings from roots to shoots safe inside a rugged and sturdy greenhouse that protects against animal browse, desiccating winds and weed sprays and string trimmers. SunFlex is built tough to work day and night in the wild and the urban jungle to ensure your seedlings survive against the many threats that can kill them in their first seasons. 3. Natural Air Flow – In addition to providing superior greenhouse benefits, the entire SunFlex series is engineered with Plantra's “Cross-‐Flow™" venting to promote effective air movement. Moving air naturally increases CO2 replenishment and reduces excessive moisture buildup to allow proper dormancy (hardening off) before winter, even in the coldest regions. 4. Trunk Building Support – SunFlex stakes grow stronger tree stems in a grow tube from the start -‐ Like everything we do at Plantra, it all begins with growing the plant and the SunFlex stake is no exception. Trees use a variety of environmental influences to grow and wind is an important factor in normal stem development. SunFlex stakes, "purpose-‐built" for SunFlex Grow Tubes, harness the wind to stimulate plant growth responses that encourage stronger stems. Unlike traditional, rigid staking systems which can lock tubes in place and prevent natural movement of the developing tree, SunFlex gently moves back and forth when the wind blows and returns to straight to train your trees tall, straight and strong.
