Coir – Natures Gift from the Coconut
Ever since it’s discovery as a potential growing media in the 1940’s, coconut husk and it’s pith, fibers, and chunks, have become known for their
unique properties that just happen to be perfect both as an amendment to other components in a growers blend and as a stand alone substrate preferred by many growers, worldwide.
Adding coir to your own blends can make a world of difference in both water holding capacity and porosity. Coir’s unique structure makes it highly valuable as an amendment or a stand alone substrate. Coir comes in several textures, and depending on the structure you need, the consistencies can be combined to create the right texture for any crop.
Benefits of adding Coir
Since coir comes in compressed blocks, it is expanded by adding water before use. Many will be happily surprised at our yield. If you are buying coir now from other suppliers, take a look at our yields per pallet/per load. By decreasing impurities (like sand) you’ll find our yield is much higher per block, per pallet, and per load. That’s one of the reasons we refer to our coir line as “Royal”
