Coir & Mixture for Plants

Coconut Coir is the secret ingredient in our growing mixture! It has a multitude of benefits to make your plants thrive!

What is Coconut Coir?

Coconut Coir is the fibrous husk and pithy dust that makes up the outer layer of a ripe coconut. It has become a popular Hydroponics (i.e. soilless) growing medium, for gardening. 

Why Coconut Coir?

• Shock stress buffer (i.e. absorbs extra nutrients) – Don’t worry about adding extra fertilizer and other nutrients as the Coconut Coir will only use what is necessary and absorb the excess.

• High water retention – Coconut Coir is an extremely effective growing medium as it can absorb up to 10x its weight in water. Which means that roots in your plants will not get dehydrated.

• Optimal Structure (good air to water ratio) - Offers a rare combination of excellent water retention, reliable drainage and ideal aeration. It gives the roots plenty of room, allowing for optimum air exposure.

• Easy to handle - Lightweight and flexible

• Eco-friendly and reusable - Coco coir uses parts of the fruit that used to go to waste and can be composted as well.

• Don’t worry about insects - Most garden pests do not enjoy settling in coconut coir, making it excellent to repel pests from your garden.

• Plants grow faster and give a bigger yield - When used for drain-to-waste growing, Coco Coir gives excellent results. With the right Coco Coir nutrients in your water bath, your plants spend less time searching for food and more time growing.
