5Kg Compressed Coco Coir Bail.
CocoGro contains 3/4" long, double-sieved coconut pith fibers to reduce dust, provide air space and optimal air to water ratio for strong root development. CocoGro has excellent drainage properties allowing it to be used longer than coir with shorter fibers.
This coir fiber is aged a minimum of 18 months to finish its decomposition stage. In addition, CocoGro is exposed to rain water from at least 3 monsoon seasons, which naturally washes harmful salts from the final product. Many other coir fibers are aged only 4 to 5 months and may have excessive potassium and salts that require chemical treatment. All Botanicare coco is pre-buffered with calcium nitrate and rinsed before packaging to eliminate any salts. It is also hydrated with Botanicare's proprietary fulvic acid, humic acid, and trace mineral treatment. If you do wish to rinse CocoGro, use R.O. water and a 2:1 ratio of water to coco by volume to flush the soil before planting. Each 5kg bales requires 3 - 4 gallons of water to fully hydrate depending on slight variances between bricks.
Use CocoGro instead of peat moss in your own soil blends.
