COIR (6MM) - BUFFERED "650G" BLOCK

Coir is the fibrous material of the coconut fruit. The short fibres and dust/pith are by-products of the coconut fibre industry and are suitable for use as a growing media in horticulture, as it has the following benefits:

  • Coir is a completely homogenous material
  • It's texture is consistent and uniform
  • It retains moisture well, as composed of millions of capillary micro-sponges that absorb and hold up to nine times it’s own weight in water
  • It has up to 27% of easily available water
  • It will hold and release nutrients in solution over an extended period of time without re-watering
  • Maintains an excellent air filled porosity (18%-23%)
  • It has a natural pH of 5.7 to 6.5
  • It has a naturally high lignin content which encourages favourable micro-organisms around the root zone
