We had an email come our way from a customer who was concerned about the “barbed shaped extensions” coming out of the UC Verde plugs he had installed 4 weeks prior. He thought they were most likely weeds, but wanted to double check before he yanked them out. So, just in case the same thought may have crossed your mind – worry not! These are actually runners that the grass sends out in order to spread itself. The runners root into the ground as they go and from that more grass will grow!
Check out this old sample flat we used for a demonstration that’s been sitting in the greenhouse – it’s runners are trying to find a place to root!
