These large (50mm) Jiffy® pellets are a commercial grade compressed coir pellet suitable for seed and cutting propagation of a wide range of plant varieties. Genuine Jiffy®-7 compressed coir pellets are suitable for a range of horticultural applications including:
Seed Propagation - produces compact, uniform and hardy seedlings with improved germination and transplanting.
Cutting Propagation - ideal for the vegetative propagation of many softwood plant varieties.
Other applications - suitable for many other horticultural applications including hydroponics.
As the name suggests Jiffy®-7 compressed coir pellets are made of compressed coir. For the germination of most plant varieties, coir is generally more suitable than common peat as coir is lighter (enabling germinating seedlings to push through easier) has improved air-filled porosity and a lower EC.
Jiffy®-7 pellets provide the convenience of optimal water retention, therefore generally require watering once every few days, unlike sand, vermiculite and peat mixes which require frequent watering. The range of Jiffy®-7 products including pellets are a professional grade product used widely by the nursery industry in Australia. For instructions on how to use these Jiffy® compressed coir pellets, please see our Seed Sowing Guide for Jiffy Pellets.

What am I Purchasing?
50mm Jiffy®-7 Compressed coir pellets, of selected pack type
These Jiffy pellets are fantastic. I've gone through a 20 pack and have them set up in a propagating tray. The pellets are great in holding the right amount of moisture throughout the column, ensuring the seeds are getting the best chance for initial root growth.
I had ordered quite a few things from the Climbing Fig and was very impressed with the packaging and promptness in shipping. Thanks again!

Simple, effective, affordable.
These are the easiest, least stressful way to pop seeds. A perfect base for that young seedling.
