Description

Coir is a natural fiber extract from coconut husk. The Coir fibers are extracted from between the outer shell and hard internal shell of the coconut. The fibers are then screened, graded, washed and compressed into bricks. Coir has many applications but is especially useful for gardening as an alternative to peat moss.

Water Holding Capacity

A compressed coco coir brick, block or bale should be soaked in water for at least 1 hour before using. Coco coir fibers expand 5 to 7 times in volume when soaked in water. Because of its superior water holding capacity, coir has excellent air space and drainage. When used in sandy soils, coconut coir fibers help to keep nutrients and moisture close to plant roots instead of washing away. When used in clay soils, coco coir brick helps to break up hard-packed earth and move nutrients and moisture through the soil.

First Coco coir experience

I had never used this before, so I didn't know what to expect. I was very happy with its moisture retention. Completely satisfied. :)
