Coco peat is a natural, and renewable resource produced from coconut husks. Potting soil manufactures add value to potting mixtures by adding a percentage of good quality coco peat.
Plants grown with coco peat require less frequent watering due to their higher water-holding capacity. Finer roots can be seen in a shorter time. The roots receive greater aeration resulting in healthier plants.
Cocopeat ensures a sufficient amount of water for the plant without compromising on the drainage capacity.
CoirGreen® Coco Peat is pressed in weights of 650g bricks and 5kg blocks with a compression ratio of 8:1. We produce blocks of 10kg and 25kg on request; however larger products mean bigger transports.
