Jiffy 7 Pellets 41mm
R3.00 – R2 200.00
Jiffy 7 Pellets 41mm are made from Sphagnum peat from specially selected peat bogs. Lime and a special fertilizer with a low ammonium content are added to the peat in order to stimulate growth. The pellets have a pH of approximately 5.3 and are wrapped in a thin, biodegradable net.
Jiffys are a popular ready to use media and are perfect for seed germination and also for rooting plant cuttings or clones.
The compressed pallets are approx. 41mm W x 42mm H when fully expanded. When exposed to water the Jiffy expands and the hydrated media is held within a degradable net. A small indent is provided on top of the disc to place the seed into once the disc has expanded.
Because the Jiffys have an outer netting to hold the media inside, they can be self-standing or growers can place them inside seedling trays for additional support. ( Handy when rooting cuttings )
Once a good root system has developed throughout the media, they can be directly planted into an NFT system or a larger plastic or fabric pot or even a rockwool slab.
Jiffy 7 Pellets 41mm are also very popular for soil growers and can be directly planted into the soil when the seedling is established.
Jiffy 7s are manufactured from sphagnum peat (and Coir fibers) harvested from carefully selected bogs which are subject to stringent internal and governmental controls to ensure minimal environmental impact. Peat is only taken from sources where the re-generation rate is greater than the harvest rate and the local ecology will not be adversely affected.
