Ready in 60 seconds with the Expander

The Jiffy Plug Expander has nozzle bars spraying from above and a water bath soaking the pellets from below, all to break the dry surface tension of the pellets for quicker expansion. It uses hot water for quickest results. You can set the water temperature to 130F or 54F depending on your needs. Just set the trays of pellets on the belt and they’ll be ready for the seeds or cuttings in under a minute.

The pellet’s root zone temperature is around 70F after bathing at the hotter setting, so you’ll give your seeds and cuttings an immediate boost, even on cold days. For added convenience, the Jiffy Plug Expander has a dibbling function. It can be set up inline to feed directly into any seeding system and make this a one- to two-person operation.

800 pellets a minute

The Jiffy Plug Expander maximizes speed, so you’ll need minimal labor to start your propagation process. In fact, you can expand as many as 800 pellets a minute, depending on the pellet type and tray size. Watch the video now.
