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.

  • Compressed bricks are easy to handle and store

  • Each brick yields 0.125 cubic feet of growing medium
  • New box contains : 1 x 650g Coconut Coir Brick
  • $3.00 shipping for first block – $1.00 shipping additional for added blocks

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.

It’s coconut coir

It’s a large brick of coconut coir that expands approximately 10 times it’s original size. Great service!

So fluffy!

My worms love it and you get quite a bit of it once it's expanded. It holds water well at the same time as helping to prevent overwatering, so it makes it a lot easier to keep everything just right for the worms. I plan on ordering more in the future!

Fantastic value

Worms arrived perfect as always. Coir is so easy to work with - I am now adding a lot of shredded paper along with the coir to increase bedding area. I am now up to around 5000 worms and all is well. I am having a problem though ... I have not figured out how to count all of them :)
