How the Jiffy 7 – 84 Hole Plastic Tray Works:

Cuttings placed in a soaked Jiffy 7 Soil plug can be prone to falling over. Placing them into this 84 hole tray will keep them supported and also spaces them out. The tray can be cut with scissors to fit into your propagator if necessary.

Using the Jiffy 7 – 84 Hole Plastic Tray

Comprehensive instructions about how to take cuttings can be found in various places on the internet. Here is a short guide: Cut your Jiffy 7 - 84 Hole Tray to fit the bottom of your propagator and drop in your pre-soaked Jiffy 7 Soil Plugs. Choose healthy shoots with thick stems from which to take your cuttings and make the last cut with a sterile scalpel. Dip the cut end into a rooting gel such as Clonex and then place the end of the cutting into one of the rooting plugs. When you have finished taking your cuttings, put the lid on your propagator and move to a mild environment under your propagation light. Keep the rooting plugs moist and mist your cuttings 2-3 times a day. After a few days, gradually open up the ventilation slots on the lid of your propagator to reduce humidity. When your cuttings have rooted through the plugs, they can then be placed in a large rockwool cube, soil or a hydroponics system to grow.

 

Jiffy 7 Soil Plugs can also be used to germinate seeds. Simply drop a seed into the hole in a pre-soaked Jiffy 7 Soil Plug and close the top by pinching the sides. As soon as the tap-root appears, simply transplant it into the grow-medium of your choice.
