Jiffy Pots 13cm x 10cm Plant Pots Round Biodegradeable Compostable
As an environmentally friendly alternative to any plastic container, Jiffypots are 100% compostable and approved for organic production.
Fast and easy. The Jiffypot has also found its way in to greenhouse growers, growing herbs, hydroponic lettuce, orchids and other pot plants. It is hard to find a crop the Jiffypot is not suited for.
Best of all, Jiffypot is certified ‘home compostable’, no chemicals are used during the production of the pots, making it the obvious choice for use in combination with any food crop.
Roots grow through the pot wall naturally and are air pruned stimulating stronger, more fibrous root development than in plastic pots. There is no need to ‘de-pot’ before potting on or planting out which impacts a growers labour savings. Establishment after potting on is quicker as there is no root disturbance, so the growing period is normally reduced by several weeks compared to plants grown in plastic pots. No recycling or disposal costs are incurred.
Quicker rooting is achieved because temperature fluctuations in the root zone are reduced and the average root zone temperature is 1 degree higher than in plastic pots.
Reduced Water Consumption
The ability to retain moisture in the pot wall can reduce water consumption by up to 20% compared to plastic pots.
The Coir Jiffy-Pot provides a peat-free alternative to the standard product. Coir pots allow even faster root penetration through the pot wall, making them ideal for short-term crops or where quick potting on is desirable.
Water distribution throughout the pot is quicker and more uniform, making them ideal for sub-irrigated beds and crops that require precise water management.
Coir Pots are suitable for use in Organic production systems.
The Jiffypot is a certified home compostable container and will compost under conditions at home in your garden. A home compostable container is sometimes also called a ‘plantable’ container. Plant pot and all, the pot will compost in your garden or yard, no problem. ‘Home
compostable’ and ‘plantable options’ are the most straight forward, no hassle, just plant and forget, nature will take care of the rest. The Jiffypot is one of very few ‘Certified Home Compostable’ containers available.
