Welcome to Kiriella Products SL!! Coconut Husk Fiber Natural Growing Anthurium Orchids Organic Coco Coir 500g Pack. Country of Origin: Sri Lanka.
Coir or Coconut Fiber, is a natural Fiber extracted from the outer husk of coconut and used in products such as floor mats, doormats, brushes and mattresses. Coir is the fibrous material found between the hard, internal shell and the outer coat of a coconut.
Highly recommended for Potting Anthurium or Mounting orchids and other epiphytic plants that are grown bare root, in Sphagnum Moss, orchid bark mix or similar medium. Benefits of using Coconut Coir for Potting Plants.Unlike peat moss, which is highly acidic, coconut coir has a neutral pH level. Most garden vegetables and flowers grow best in neutral to slightly alkaline conditions. When you use peat to amend a garden bed, an addition of agricultural lime is often necessary to combat the higher acidity. With coconut coir, limestone isn't necessary unless the soil naturally has a higher pH level. Coir improves soil drainage in the bed while also helping to retain moisture in quick-draining soils.
Since coir breaks down slowly, much like peat, it creates air pockets in the soil that allow excess moisture to drain away from plant roots. The coir itself holds onto some moisture so the drainage doesn't occur too quickly and the soil doesn't dry out completely. These dual drainage and retention properties allow coir to improve moisture management in both heavy clay soils and dry, sandy beds. Coconut coir contains few nutrients so it doesn't add to the nutrient quality of the soil.Further fertilization or compost amendments are necessary for heavy-feeding plants such as vegetables and some flowers, but most herbs develop their best flavor in low-nutrient soils. Coir also works to improve the overall quality of the soil over time since it adds much needed organic matter to the bed. Annual coir amendments can result in a loose, friable soil over time, which is the preferred soil quality for most garden plants. Peat moss, which coir replaces as a soil amendment, takes centuries to regrow once harvested. Coir is completely sustainable since it is a natural byproduct of coconut harvests, and coconut trees produce new coconuts every year. Using the coir in the garden keeps it out of the landfill where it would otherwise go. Coir can take a century or longer to fully break down in these landfills, so it's more sustainable to use it to improve your garden soil. Thank you and Come Again!
