How many of the Jiffy Seed Starter Greenhouse Model # TS50H-16H will this fill? I would also like...

Asked by CCA December 9, 2019

Answer

Thank you for your question. One 12qt bag of Jiffy Organic Seed Starting Mix will fill 7.67 JS50 Peat Strips. There are 5 JS50 peat strips per TS50H thus one bag will fill 1 TS50H complete and half of another. In regards to cold stratification we recommend pre-wet the seed starting mix with warm water (mix in a bucket), add the moistened mix to the peat strip cells and then add your seeds. Place the peat strips in a zip lock freezer bag for 3-4 weeks and then remove to thaw and start growing. Hope this helps and if you need further assistance don't hesitate to reach out to our customer service team at 508.285.5800. Our best to you this season.

Would be this mix okay to germinate Venus flytrap or plant it?

Answers

This mix is fine for germinating a Venus flytrap and for short term growth. For long term growth, one should add amendments that specifically promote this plant's growth. One amendment would be coarse spagnum moss.

Jiffy Organic Seed Starting Mix
I ordered this because the reviews were good, and I was tired of the chunks of sticks in the Miracle Grow S. Starter. I always microwave my potting and seed start soils, cooking 4 quart bags at a time. (I’ve heard storries of people that got flies or mold in their mix). I was happy as I ran my fingers through the mix! Nice, fine, smooth, and silky!! Did detect one or two lumps of wood. I hydrate my mix in batches amounts that I plan to use at one session, with hot faucet water (NY, some of the best water). I was suprised how quickly it hydrated! Less than half the time of other mixes. After about two minutes, I got 1 drop when sueezed. I added a bit more water, mounded the mix, covered it with plastic to let it hydrate more for 15-30 min. About 15 min, it soaked up half the water I added, so tilted the tray to let excess water out. I made plugs and flats for the remaining lettuce, radish, and spinich to be planted. I was disappointed that there were more wood chuncks than i expected. Removed them by hand My lettuce is growing well, two months before last frost!! I’m taking advantage of global warming!

Great organic seed starter with a lot of peat moss and some percolite. Holds water very well and provides a good medium to start seeds in. It is a bit messy and takes awhile to soak in water but works great. I have used it for 3 years now with great success.

This Jiffy Seed Starting Mix is the best that I have found for starting seeds of all kinds. Have tried two other "name" brands with so-so results on one and absolutely terrible on the other. These other two had added fertilizer, which is not really necessary for seed starting and can be a minus. It's kind of hard to show this product in action, so the photo attached is of the results. This is the second batch of spinach started in the Jiffy mix. Normal germination is 7-10 days, both batches came up in four days. The photo is of five day growth. There is no soil or added fertilizer in this product. A lot of reviews have stated that the product is hard to wet. That's due to the peat moss and coir. Just measure out what is needed and add warm water (stir in thoroughly) until mixture clumps in your hand, loosely at first. Add a little more warm water and stir. Clump again until a little firmer. Do not make it dripping. Put the medium into pots and plant according to depth instructions. I have grown tomatoes, green beans, zucchini, peppers, watermelon, onions, peas and corn inn this starter for years with excellent results. Just wish my local Home Depot store would start stocking this again as I bought two bags online through their website. Overall, it's a great product, at least for me. Will definitely purchase again.

Why would I give a review before I have had the chance to plant the seed, see if they germinate and see how well the plants grow? If I wanted to give you a review, I would do it without the prompt!
