Cocogro™ has a very low salt content that is available in ¾’’ double-sieved long fibers to reduce dust and give ample space within the mix.

It has excellent drainage properties and can be used over a longer period of time than coir fiber with shorter fibers. With longer fibers and reduced dust, growers will experience an optimal air to water ratio, which is vital for strong root development.

Cocogro™ is a superior coir fiber because it is aged a minimum of 18 months and has finished its decomposition stage.

In addition, Cocogro™ passes through at least three monsoon seasons, which naturally washes away harmful salts out of the final product.

You may want to add additonal aerating abilities to the coco coir.  This can be done by adding Perlite to your mix.  Roughly 60% coco coir and 40% Perlite will greatly increase the oxygen levels in the roots while maintaining an adequate water-holding capacity.

Characteristics of Coco Coir:

  • Ideal pH in the range of 6-6.7
  • Holds 8 - 9 times its weight in water
  • Holds 22% air even when fully saturated
  • Has excellent drainage and air porosity for better plant growth
  • Top layer always remains dry, leaving behind no chances of fungal growth
  • It never shrinks, cracks or produces crust
  • Aids in suppressing fungus gnats, to a degree
  • Has excellent cation exchange

Note:  Be aware the coco coir naturally holds onto some nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, manganese and sulfur.  Therefore, it's wise to flush the medium on a weekly or bi-weekly schedule.  When doing so, test the run-off to make certain the ppms have gone down to almost nothing.  Also the pH coming out of the bottom of a container should match the pH being fed to the plants.
