This propagation tray is ideal for germinating 36 seeds or taking 36 cuttings. It holds 36 large-sized Jiffy Plugs in a 6 x 6 grid. Jiffy Plugs are made from dried and compressed peat. The peat is lightly fertilised, sterile, pH-adjusted and fabric-wrapped before being compressed and dehydrated. Jiffy Plugs also contain a ready-made hole for putting your cutting or seeds in to. A thin fabric wrapping ensures that the plugs will not fall apart, but roots are able to penetrate it easily. Each large plug is 5cm in diameter and 2.5cm tall when dry. Once hydrated, they will grow in height to around 9.5cm.
The tray has been designed from the ground up to accommodate these particular plugs, with a sturdy framework that allows them to expand in height while containing the side areas and providing lots of aeration for the rootzone. The spacings between each plug allow cuttings and seedlings to grow through their initial stages without there being too much overlap, which has quite a negative effect if leaves become shaded by other leaves and lose contact with direct light. This helps to improve success rates and allows young plants to be developed further before transplantation to a new container or larger rooting cube. Strong cuttings and seedlings produce stronger full-sized plants – the 36-Site Propagation Tray will give your indoor garden the best start possible.
