Cut flowers

Carnations

Easy propagation

Carnations’ short cycle makes them easy to propagate and they adapt well to different media. However, they are disease- and pest-prone. High-density propagation and production can worsen these issues, some of them directly related to the use of poor-grade substrate in the production stage.

Jiffy’s solutions

Jiffy’s high-quality substrates are perfect for the propagation of carnations. Our FORMiT substrates form excellent plugs, making it easy to transplant them to either soil or hydroponic media. FORMiT guarantees optimal intake of nutrient and ensures the shortest possible cycle. Your plants will tolerate transportation to a different nursery.

Ensure higher yields

Our Preforma Box plugs are an excellent alternative for propagation. These plugs stimulate fast rooting and excellent performance during transplanting. Use them in combination with Jiffy Growbags for best results. Specially designed for flower production, our space-efficient Growbags ensure reduced levels of diseases and pests. With the right nutrition and irrigation, they generate high yields and stable production.
