Cocopeat is natural fiber made out of coconut husks. The extraction of coconut fiber from husks gives us this byproduct called coco-peat. The fibrous coconut husk is pre washed, machine dried, sieved and made free from sand and other contaminations such as animal and plant residue.
Cocopeat is 100% natural multi purpose growing medium. Coco peat for plants is also known as coir.
Cocopeat is a very good alternative to traditional peat moss and Rock wool. Its air filled porosity and high water holding capacity makes it, an ideal growing medium for the plant crops. It is 100% organic and eco friendly, free from soil borne pathogen and weed. It has a pH of 5 – 7. EC level <1 mS/cm is ideal for plant growth and EC level >1 can be use for animal bedding, vivarium or absorbent.

|Max 40″ HC Container||750 bags|
Which is better soil or cocopeat?
Cocopeat is preferable to the soil. Seed germination and seeding growth are aided by coco peat, which retains more moisture and nutrients than any other soil. You can read our article for more information.
Can we mix cocopeat with soil?
Coco peat can be combined with soil. Because it is an organic planting medium, coco peat can be used in hydroponic systems. One of the advantages of cocopeat as a hydroponic growing medium is that it holds water and contains a variety of chemical components. Cocopeat is ideal for plant growth because its pH ranges from 5.0 to 6.8. This is also advantageous if you are a beginner or novice gardener. Soil mixed with cocopeat will be fertile.

Can I grow vegetables in coco peat?
The coconut fiber extraction process produces cocopeat, which is a by-product. It has numerous applications in horticulture, agriculture, animal husbandry, and other fields. Because it is a waste product that can be replenished fast, cocopeat material is well-known as a growing medium that is more environmentally friendly than peat moss. Cocopeat has a neutral pH level, unlike acidic peat moss. In neutral to slightly moist conditions, most garden veggies and flowers grow better.

How do you mix cocopeat in water
When you mix cocopeat in water, the plant’s root absorbs water more efficiently because the cocopeat coir is rinsed with fresh water to lower electrical conductivity, which is a measure of salt content. The salt in cocopeat coir comes from the seashore, where the coconut absorbs the salt and stores it inside. You can read our article for more information.
