The PRO7 COCO CUBE produced by Jiffy is already the number one choice for all professional cut-flower and vegetable growers using hydroponic systems, thanks to the reliable consistent quality of coco coir, air-pruning, better temperature control and versatility.
PRO7 purified, stabilized COCO CUBE substrate is carefully selected at Jiffy’s own production site; washed/buffered to RHP standards to aid faster rooting to develop stronger plants. Its maximum water holding capacity of 60-75% and air-filled porosity of 20-35% ensures optimum oxygen diffusion rates in the root zone for propagation/potting on vegetive stage growth. The PRO7 COCO is delivered as a dry plate enclosed in PLA netting. This is highly efficient for both transportation and storage. When water is added, the plate swells into a block, ready to propagate or cultivate your plants and contained by the netting to keep the medium together and the growing area and irrigation lines clean. PRO7 COCO CUBE work perfectly in combination with Jiffy7c plugs, ROOT!T plugs for propagation and Loose Fill PRO7 COCO substrate for potting on.
PRO7 COCO CUBE can be planted into directly, or you can propagate in a Jiffy 7c and then transplant to the cube on first sight of roots coming out of the base or sides of the plug.
Add lukewarm water to a bucket or tray and mix in Vitalink PlantStart at 4ml per litre of water for seeding or if using the cubes as a transplanter block use 6ml per litre for rooted cuttings/seedlings. Place in your cubes and watch them swell. VitaLink PlantStart supplies the perfect ratio of boron to calcium, proven to promote rapid root development and vigorous early growth.
When your plant is established in the CUBE, transplant into a professional substrate mix in a pot, such as PRO7 COCO products, PRO7 LIGHT MIX or a hydroponics system and away you grow.
Then, feed from day one with a high-quality professional plant feed, such as VitaLink Coco Coir feed.

The PRO7 COCO CUBE and PLUGs now use PLA netting. This is made from polylactic acid (PLA) an alternative to plastic, based on corn starch. PLA netting is a lightweight, fine-fibre web which is biodegradable and compostable under controlled industrial conditions. It is certified under EU norm EN13432. PRO7 cares for the environment and we are striving to help our customers grow their products in a sustainable or renewable way.
RHP certified substrates guarantee an optimal start of your crop. The RHP certificate ensures that the substrate complies with the quality requirements concerning, for instance, air content and water uptake, pH, EC and nutrients. For the production of RHP substrates, only phytosanitary clean raw materials are allowed to be used; the processes and products are regularly checked by independent inspectors. In short, quality of substrates is the basis for a good start of your culture.
For superior propagation, we recommend VitaLink Plant start; it has a unique calcium/boron combination that rapidly sets rooting on cuttings and develops strong seedlings. A strong start in life is the key for achieving top results.
For that extra boost when cuttings/seedlings have become established, add VitaLink RootStim. RootStim stimulates roots to grow stronger, longer and increases the formation of root hairs. Better roots mean better nutrient and water uptake, resulting in more vigorous growth and increased resistance to environmental stress.
VitaLink RootStim contains Ascophyllum nodosum (seaweed) extract, a high-quality extract containing natural stimulants and hormones. It is harvested from seaweed during the optimum period of the year to harness its finest nutritional properties. Includes carefully selected oligosaccharides to support the establishment of strong roots.
