Jiffy Pellet

Jiffy coir pellets for Sri Lanka’s First Vertical Farm cover


Jiffy Pellets are an open-wall, net container and medium all in one. They are easy to work with, economical to ship (being supplied as lightweight, highly compressed, dry discs) and they transplant well, either into larger containers, or directly into the ground.

PLA Netting
Reducing the use of plastic in packaging and production purposes is an important global issue. Jiffy is now in the process of switching from PE and PP plastics to PLA netting for all Jiffy Pellets. PLA net is a lightweight (12-gram weight), fine-fibre bio-web made of polylactic acid. This material is designed for any growing applications. The PLA net is biodegradable and compostable under controlled, industrial conditions. It is certified according to the harmonized European standard EN13432.

Product Certifications
To guarantee the high quality standard of our products, we certify our product portfolio for organic use, biodegradability, quality, uniformity, etc. This way we help you to meet the requirements your products need in the field for organic production, sustainability, biodegradability and quality.

Jiffy Pellets

Propagating seeds and cuttings or tissue culture with Jiffy Pellets has a number of clear advantages for the professional grower. You can consistently record higher and faster levels of in-pot germination thanks to the uniform growing in Jiffy Pellets, consistent quality, means consistent results. Your plant yields will be higher as seedlings do not have to be removed from the container, the pellet eliminates root disturbance, and simply planted into the nest growing stage without transplant shock. These shorter growing process cycles also mean considerable labor-savings and water-use reduction. Jiffy Pellets are a logical choice for professional propagators who want to be more profitable. The pellets are made from either 100% peat or a mixture of peat and Jiffy’s own-manufactured RHP-certified coco substrate, or 100% coco substrate. Most Jiffy pellets are available preloaded in many European and North American tray standards, as well as on poly-roll (pre-spaced pellets on a roll) or as bulk pellets for loading into standard industry trays. The 100% peat and the coir/peat mix pellets have the medium exposed to high temperature flash drying to create a sterile substrate.

  • Better, faster germination
  • Labor-saving
  • Lower water use

Jiffy-7 – The Original

Many professional propagators may be familiar with the Jiffy-7 pellet. The Jiffy-7 has a long track-record and is currently available in a wide variety of sizes, tray configurations and media choices to fit all growers’ needs. If you are looking for a clean and cost-effective propagation solution which is well-suited to almost any crop, and is configured with most existing automation systems, then the Jiffy-7 is the best solution.

Jiffy-7C – 100% Peat Free

Many modern professional plant propagators in greenhouses and nurseries are today choosing the Jiffy-7C pellet as their preferred option. If you are looking for a rooting medium which can be applied in a wide range of highly stressing conditions, the Jiffy-7C pellet fits the bill. The 7C contains 100% RHP-certified coco-substrate enclosed in netting. This coco-substrate is manufactured at Jiffy’s own plant in Sri Lanka, and is made using a by-product of the coconut industry. Rooting plants which prefer well-aerated, fast draining plugs benefit particularly well from the Jiffy-7C. Growers seeking a peat-free propagation system choose the Jiffy-7C.

  • Stronger roots
  • Peat free
  • Sustainable

Quick Soil Mix (QSM) Pellets

Growers looking for the most efficient solution to fill pots with soil-less substrate turn to Jiffy QSM pellets. These pellets are manufactured without netting. For growers and retail suppliers, they have all the benefits of lower logistics and storage costs due to the pellets being supplied as highly compressed, dry discs instead of bags of loose substrate. QSM pellets come in two mix varieties: compressed 100% peat substrate or compressed 100% RHP-certified coco-substrate. QSM pellets are available in a wide range of sizes to suit many containers.

  • Sustainable
  • Zero plastic
  • Solution driven

Jiffy Coco Disk

Gerbera and orchid growers who want maximum structural stability and an optimal water/air ratio for their cultivation need to look no further: the Jiffy CD, or Coco Disk, has been specially designed for Gerbera cultivation. The Jiffy CD contain 100% RHP-certified coconut husk chips, an environmentally friendly and sustainable medium. The husk chips are washed and buffered to guarantee against high Na and K values and avoiding excessive conductivity. Orchid-growers can also use customized sizes of Jiffy CDs for their production.
