Jiffy Products of America

Roots grow through the Jiffypot wall naturally, then are air-pruned, which stimulates stronger and more fibrous root development than in plastic pots. Bench utilization after potting on is quicker because there is no root disturbance, reducing the growing period by several weeks compared to plants grown in plastic pots.
