Ellepot 10 Weeks is another specially developed and patented Ellepot Paper, and it is made with bio-based materials and has a degradation time of 10 weeks. This means that growers will be able to handle the plug in the nursery for 10 weeks, before the paper reaches a level of degradation where the plant should either be harvested, transplanted into a larger pot, or planted into the field.
The Ellepot 10 weeks paper is made with bio-based materials and based on natural, raw materials from FSC®-certified forests and other controlled and renewable resources. Binder based on Nobel Prize winning technology is biodegradable.
The FSC® certificate is our and your guarantee for sustainable forest management.
A specially developed biodegradable binder in the paper is based on a Nobel Prize winning technology, and, with years in the making, we have conducted research and testing to develop just the right texture, durability, and performance for Ellepot 10 Weeks.
The FSC® label ensures that the forest products used are from responsibly harvested and verified sources.
‘Environmentally conscious motivation on the part of the customers is exactly the reason why there is a need for an independent, high-quality guarantee of the renewability of raw materials. The “OK biobased” certification meets that need perfectly.’

The special characteristics in the paper provides fragile roots an excellent protection and let roots grow perfectly through after transplanting without transplant shock.
We recommend this paper for use in short-cycle propagation. Growers will be able to handle the plug in the nursery for 10 weeks, before the paper reaches a level of degradation where plants should either be harvested, transplanted into a larger pot, or planted into the field.
We advise using a low tray for optimized air circulation to the roots. We also recommend more frequent wet/dry-cycles in the bench environment until plant out.
