What’s Coconut Coir?
A growing medium like no other.
Coconut Coir is the Number One growing medium worldwide for professional and commercial growers. Made from the spongy, pithy part of the coconut husk, virtually all fruits, flowers and vegetables can be sprouted and ultimately grown to maturity in coir.
Coir is often used to replace peat moss to amend and aerate soil. It can be used as a planting medium on its own, or blended with other products to make custom mixes. Coir is Hydrophilic – It loves water – and due to it’s tubular, cellular structure, it is unsurpassed at absorbing and retaining moisture. Yet at saturation, water runs right through, virtually eliminating root rot and mold, the primary reasons for plant failure.
By Nature, coir is pH neutral and sterile. It is 100% organic and completely renewable, biodegradable and compostable. It is an excellent choice for sustainability.
Husk is the tough fiber and is made up of coir.
The second part after the husk is brown hard shell.
Coconut flesh is the edible part of the nut.
Coconut water is high in vitamins and proteins.
Parts of Coconut
In the past, when coconuts were harvested for their delicious meat and juice, the coconut husk was considered a waste product. All of the material from the husk to the inner shell of the coconut was a discard product…until people realized it had many applications in gardening and home products.
