Experience Unmatched Aeration and Sustainability with Jiffy Grow Blocks!
Jiffy Grow Blocks, are the epitome of excellence in hydroponic cultivation. These compact blocks, made from coconut waste products, promise superior aeration and sustainability for your young plants, setting the stage for healthy growth and robust yields.
Key Features of Jiffy Grow Blocks:
Superior Aeration: Coco coir, known for its exceptional germination rates, forms an aerated and low-stress substrate that benefits young plants. These blocks double in height when hydrated, offering optimal conditions for plant development.
Coco Coir Advantage: Celebrated for its fibrous texture, coco coir effectively retains water while maximising aeration, creating an ideal environment for root growth.
Air Porosity: Jiffy blocks, composed of coco waste (pith and husk), maintain an air porosity value of 20-35% after saturation and drainage. This ensures oxygen reaches every corner of the root network, promoting robust plant growth.
Water-Holding Capacity: These blocks boast outstanding water-holding capacity, absorbing and retaining up to 75% of liquids. This prevents "false drain," where water passes through the medium without proper distribution, ensuring consistent and efficient nutrient delivery.
Wetting Agent: Jiffy Grow Blocks are infused with a specialised wetting agent that facilitates even water distribution through the coco, enhancing nutrient retention and uniform feeding.
Sustainable Solution: Taking a stand against single-use plastics, Jiffy Grow Blocks are enclosed in biodegradable netting crafted from polylactic acid (PLA), derived from corn starch. This eco-friendly choice naturally breaks down over time and is compostable under industrial conditions.
Certified Quality: Rest assured that you're using the highest-quality growing media with Jiffy Grow Blocks, certified by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI). These coco blocks are also RHP certified, signifying proper cleaning procedures and freedom from weeds and pathogens.
Space-Saving Design: Jiffy blocks arrive as dry, compact squares, measuring only 15mm in height. They are incredibly easy to store in drawers, shelves, or envelopes for convenient transport. These blocks double as both substrate and container, reducing the need for additional equipment.
How to Use Jiffy Grow Blocks:
Jiffy Grow Blocks can stand alone or be placed in pots or trays, preferably with drainage holes for watering. Soak them with lukewarm water, and once fully expanded (45mm height), insert your seedlings or cuttings. Place the blocks in a well-lit area free from extreme temperatures, gradually introducing them to sunlight for optimal germination. Keep the blocks consistently watered but avoid overfeeding.
When your plants outgrow the blocks, simply remove the biodegradable netting and transplant or repot the block to minimise root system disruption.
Sustainable Disposal: To honour Jiffy's sustainability efforts, please avoid disposing of Grow Blocks in household waste or recycling bins. These blocks are industrially compostable, although disposal options may vary by location.
Where and When to Use Jiffy Grow Blocks:
Ideal for germinating seedlings and cuttings, Jiffy Grow Blocks are highly favoured among hydroponic growers due to their superior performance. They encourage a diverse microbial ecosystem crucial for healthy plant development. Once germinated, you can easily transplant the Grow Blocks into any desired substrate.
