After two and a half years of research and trials, Jiffy has introduced The Preforma Orchid Plug.
The Performa Orchid Plug Propagation System is a six step concept developed by Jiffy to assist orchid growers in growing the best orchid young plants possible.
A uniform substrate featuring a structure with hundreds of micro air pockets evenly distributes throughout the media, stimulating fibrous root growth throughout the full depth and volume of the plug. As the substrate is fully bound, there is no compaction during transport or irrigation.
This new orchid plug has perfect drainage and quick and easy water uptake, allowing the roots to develop optimally, resulting in a more uniform growth.
The transparent growing tray where the plugs are grown as separate units is designed in combination with the Preforma Orchid Plug and eliminates any chance of root damage or transplant shock, while enhancing (automatic) transplanting. Extensive trials have seen production time savings from 25 to 40 percent.
