About Coco Coir
Coconut Fibre Pith
Coconut Fibre Pith (commonly referred to as Coco Peat), is a by-product of the coconut fibre extraction process in which the coco peat is separated from the fibres. Once the pith is extracted, it is washed, dried, and sieved/ graded before finally being compressed into different shapes and sizes.
Our coco peat is a completely natural and 100% organic growing medium. It is commonly used as a key substrate by large potting soil mixing factories. Its high water retention capacity and porous texture of coco peat provide the perfect environment for germination and plant growth making this eco-friendly substrate the most preferred in the market.
Coconut Husk Chips
The coconut husk is the outer layer of the coconut fruit, consisting of long fibres and sponge-like pith particles. Husk Chips are cut pieces of the coconut husk. They are available in different sizes from very small scraps to bigger lumps. They are also available as sieved and graded sizes. Chips create the spongy nature to the growing substrates, and it increases the aeration and expansion.
With diminishing sources of quality tree bark, the unique properties of Coconut Husk Chips make it a superior alternative to bark based growing medium. Orchid and Cut-Flower growers are successfully using coconut husk chips instead of bark, finding it has significant advantages in terms of quality, consistency, and even lower production costs.
