Coco Coir Benefits

Coco Coir Benefits

In North America, a trend in indoor gardening has been a shift towards sales growing practices versus hydroponics. One of the primary differences in this cultural practice is that plants are watered manually. This is usually accomplished with the aid of a submersible pump, length of hose, and a watering wand delivering the nutrient solution from a reservoir/cistern where the nutrients are prepared. While in hydroponics, the nutrients are mechanically circulated to individual planting sights typically via emitters, sprayers, flood/ drain fittings, etc. Also in hydroponics, there is typically much less growing media which is usually inert, and the nutrients...

Amazingly, it did not find a home for commercial growing until the 1980's in Holland. Dutch lily and rose growers discovered how good it promoted and supported root growth. When used in hydroponics growing, it was found to be superior to peat moss. Coco coir was...

What is Coco Coir?

What is Coco Coir?

Coco coir is the 'coir fiber pith' or 'coir dust' produced as a bi-product when coconut husks are processed for the extraction of the long fibers from the husk. Coco coir is the binding material that comes from the fiber fraction of the coconut husk. A very special grade of coir dust is washed, screened and graded before being processed into various Coco coirproducts for horticultural and agricultural applications. Coco coir is a multi-purpose soil conditioner and growing medium. It is consistent and uniform in texture. It is a completely homogeneous material composed of millions of capillary micro-sponges that absorb and hold...
