50mm Coco Disc gives an inimitable environment to the tiny seed to grow into a powerful seedling. It is ideal for seeds having a big size that needs larger root space and greater moisture.
Coco Peat Disc has shown the world that a clean seed germination technique exists! Basically, the supreme qualities of Coco Peat are packed in a decomposable bag to give users a seamless experience. It is a modern-day’s efficient seed starter. Jiffy is the world’s number 1 quality producer of cocopeat pellets. Its proven quality ensures quicker rooting because of the air pruning that ultimately stimulates a dense fibrous root development within the plug. A nutrient premix is blended in cocopeat that gives the seed the optimum energy required for germination. These discs are designed in such a way that it promotes root health, and healthier roots mean stronger seedling. Its water retention and aeration capacities are matchless. This can decrease the crop cycle by up to 25% to produce stronger, more compact plants. It protects roots from mechanical shock or damage during the transplantation
Area of Application-
This perfect ready-to-go seed germination bag is apt for both hydroponics and regular gardening/farming practices where maintaining a nursery is a prerequisite. The bag doesn’t allow cocopeat to flow into NFT/DFT Channels and thereby keeps them clean and unclogged. It makes the whole transplantation process easy and fast.
50mm Cocodisc is compatible with 2.5″, 3″, 3.4″, and 5″ netpots.
How to use CocoPallet:
- Soak the cocodisc/cococoin in lukewarm water (or room temperature). Let it soak for about 7-10 minutes until the disc has fully expanded. Then remove the excess water by keeping them in a dry place. WE suggest you keep them in a planting tray for easy handling.
- Place the seed/seeds (of the same variety) gently in the open portion of cocodisc. Always remember the rule: the ideal depth into which seed is sown should be 2 times of seed size at max it should be 5mm, for eg. for a seed of 5mm the depth should be 10mm. ( Sprinkle multiple seeds in case of plants that are grown in bulk like spinach, coriander, mustard, and fenugreek. And sow a single seed for the plants grown individually like tomatoes, lettuce, eggplant, and okra.)
- Cover the seed gently with the surrounding cocopeat as seeds germinate in a dark environment. Allow it to germinate. Spray water regularly to avoid unnecessary drying.
- Once the true leaves come out, expose them to partial/indirect sunlight to avoid the elongated stems.
- As and when the second set of True leaves appear, transplant the seedlings into the pot without removing the cocodisc/outer layer whether you are transplanting them in a hydroponic system or in soil.
- Cover the cocodisc fully with hydroponic media such as clayballs while using a hydroponic system or soil in the case of traditional gardening. For a proper root development and growth dark environment is generally recommended.
Its noteworthy features are:
- DENSE AND STRONGER ROOTS
Not every media has the capacity for Root Air Pruning, and it is a quintessential requirement for optimal growth of the plant. Because of root air pruning, Seedling coins have a better root system capable of absorbing more oxygen, moisture, and nutrients. When roots penetrate the outer netting, the outside air inhibits (prunes) the roots from growing further out. Simultaneously, the air pruning causes the inner roots to explode with beneficial fibrous root growth resulting in a dense root system.
Seedling coins are made of sterile peat growing medium, enclosed in a decomposable net. This net biodegrades in garden soil or compost, but it retains strength through the critical seedling and transplant stages. No pot is needed, and the growing medium offers great aeration and water retention. Speed and degree of decomposition will vary with soil or compost conditions.
