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
  • This disease resistant / pH balanced growing medium provides excellent air space and water holding capacity
  • Holds between 8 & 10 times its volume in water
  • 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.

Great product

I am new to worm farming and this coconut coir is fantastic. It certainly makes a great base for making a comfy bed for the worms. I still have so much to learn, but this product helps put my mind at rest.

coco coir

very easy to use and just the right size / amount for my worm bin. I will always come back to buy the things I need because the staff at Uncle Jims are very helpful, and always have received my items on time.
