Seed Jump-Starter™ is an entirely natural and organic seed and plant stimulant used successfully in stimulating strong germination of most seed varieties and promoting the healthy growth of seedlings. Seed Jump-Starter™ contains a range of naturally occurring compounds including plant hormones that have been shown to have a beneficial impact on improving plant establishment, including during seed germination, seedling transplant, propagation or just simply repotting. Strong establishment of plants is the foundation for long-term plant health and is also critical in ensuring plants perform well throughout their various growth stages.
The detailed mode-of-action description for Seed Jump-Starter™ is outlined in the Technical Details section (below). In short, the success of Seed Jump-Starter™ in stimulating strong seed germination in a range of plants (including herbs, vegetables, flowers, trees and other ornamentals) is a result of the stimulants in Seed Jump-Starter™ triggering the germination process (ends dormancy and commence seed imbibition) resulting in quicker, more even and more successful germination, as well as healthier and more vigorous seedlings.
Seed Jump-Starter™ is also available as part of the Plant Propagation Kit and is available exclusively through The Climbing Fig.
What we love
- Stimulates strong germination (ends dormancy and rapidly initiates seed imbibition)
- Promotes healthy seedling growth in a wide range of plants, ensuring heavier flowering (and fruiting where applicable) throughout the season
- Improved plant health ensures increased resistance to pests and diseases
- Improved root system development
- Phytoactive compounds, including natural PGR's (plant growth regulators, such as auxins and cytokinins)
- Nutrition, including bioactive macronutrients Nitrogen, Phosphorus & Potassium (N, P, K) and more than 8 trace-elements
- Amino acids, proteins and vitamins
Improvements in root system development in plants treated with Seed Jump-Starter™ is due to adventitious root initiation and development, triggered by the optimal ratio of auxins to cytokinins contained in Seed Jump-Starter™. Increased root-tip development also has been shown to increase the plant-uptake of calcium, which strengthens cell walls, providing increased resistance to both biotic (pests and diseases) and abiotic (drought, frost and similar) stresses.
Similarly the impact of Seed Jump-Starter™ on breaching dormancy in seeds and assisting seedling development is a result of well-understood biochemical pathways. The active ingredients of Seed Jump-Starter™ have been researched and studied in laboratories and in the field for more than a decade and this know-how is now available directly to plant enthusiasts in Australia, courtesy of The Climbing Fig.
