Orchids

New knowledge

Thanks to scientific research into growing orchids, cultivation methods have changed. At Jiffy, we have adapted our growing media to better meet the needs of this popular crop. Orchids prefer a well-drained, open substrate. So our substrate mixes contain coarse or medium-coarse bark mixed with coco husk.

Eliminating pests

Pests and insects are a common problem for phalaenopsis. Our Preforma Plugs are the solution. The soft and flexible plugs are well-aerated, even right after irrigation. They absorb water gradually to ensure the plant grows at a steady pace and remains compact. Thanks to the plugs’ open structure, they are almost always dry at the top, so liverwort or algae cannot take hold.

Even watering

At the same time, the plugs never become too dry to absorb water. That’s important to ensure all the seedlings in a tray get the same amount of water and develop evenly. Otherwise, the leaves of the fastest-growing orchids could block sunlight from smaller specimens in the tray. Give all your plants the best start with Jiffy.
