Innovative and environmentally friendly
Manufactured out of coco substrate derived from pithy tissues of coconut husk, Jiffy Growblock® is a renewable, environmentally friendly substrate with no disposal issues. Combining this with the “adjustable degradable” netting makes Growblock® the only right economical choice for cultivating cutflowers and vegetables on substrate.
A clean, inert and stable substrate
The substrate of Jiffy Growblock® is stable due to the naturally high lignin content of the coco substrate. Shrinkage is held to a minimum and rapid re-saturation is guaranteed. The clean inert nature of the substrate allows the grower to make quick changes to any fertilizer application with a broad range of EC levels.
Coco substrate is derived from the pithy tissues of coconut husk and is a renewable, environmentally friendly material. The addition of the degradable netting makes Growblock® an excellent choice for hydroponics or other greenhouse or nursery applications.
Growblock® is made of 100% coco substrate which is delivered as a dry plate enclosed in netting. After adding liquid, the plate expands into a block or media slab for planting. Jiffy has produced Growblock® to be a container and media in one, saving the grower transportation and storage costs.
The innovative netting can be adjusted to the level of degradability necessary to match the expected life span of the crop. The adjustable degradable netting also keeps the media inside each block, keeping the greenhouse environment clean.
After rapid expansion with a water and fertilizer solution, Growblock® is ready for the propagation or cultivation of plants. The product can be delivered in three sizes, and seedling holes are variable according to your crop need.
Promotes rapid rooting and growth
The purified, stabilized coco substrate is carefully selected by Jiffy to give a maximum WHC of 60-75% with a homogenous distribution. Air filled porosity of 20-35% ensures optimum oxygen diffusion rates in the root zone. The high water holding capacity and air-filled porosity result in both rapid rooting and growth of stronger roots. Jiffy Growblock® plants bring on rapid vegetative growth.
