COCO COIR COCO PEAT 100% NATURAL ORGANIC COMPOST HYDROPONIC GROWING MEDIA. Coco Peat is made from Coconut Husk (which is in-turn obtained from Coconut Trees), which are by-products.
Coco Peat primarily consists of Coco fiber pith, which is obtained by processing coconut husk and removing long fibers. Coco Peat can hold large quantities of water, just like a sponge. It is used as a replacement for traditional Peat moss in soil mixtures, or, as a soil-less substrate for plant cultivation. Used - Horticultural, Agricultural applications & Oil absorbent. 100% natural and organic growing medium.
100% biodegradable and environment friendly. Used as soil additive to retain more moisture or as a hydroponic growing medium. High moisture retention and reduces watering frequency. The raw materials are also washed in fresh water. A lot of coir on the market is very high in salinity which is not good for plants.
Coco peat can be used as a soil additive or by itself. Coco peat will keep roots aerated and hydrated at the same time. Coco peat will retain water extremely well.
Coco peat, derived from the coconut hull, is made from the fibrous material between the outer husk and the actual coconut. Originally, coir was used for making cordage and ropes in ancient Sri Lanka. It has also been used for making mats and other flooring materials. In the 1980's, it was first used commercially in Holland to grow roses and lilies.Because coir and peat worked so well to promote root growth, growers started using it for hydroponic gardening. How to Use Coco Coir in Hydroponics Systems. To use coir in a hydroponic system, you will need to make a few changes to how you would normally do things. Be sure to rinse the coir well because it is naturally high in salts, and while high-quality coir should be already rinsed, it is always better to be safe than sorry. Rinse until the water running off is clear.
After rinsing, you will find that coir tends to clump. Just break it apart with your hands so it is loose before planting. And finally, you might need to use a nutrient mix that is specific for coir growing. This is because of coir's ability to hold and release certain nutrients, as mentioned earlier. Even if you have the perfect nutrient balance in the reservoir, you may still see signs of deficiencies if you don't take account for how coir provides those nutrients to your plants.
