Compressed Coco Peat – 5kg

Coco Peat Products


Coco peat is a byproduct gained during the extraction of coir fiber from the coconut husk. It is a 100% natural, spongy cellulose organic plant growing medium. Coco peat is dried and processed to produce a compressed 5kg block, which makes for an excellent growing medium in hydroponics or container plant growing. Clean coir has natural rooting hormones and anti-fungal properties. Coco peat also has a high water retention capacity and is a cheap substitute and natural organic product.

Advantages of Coco Peat

  • Water retention and drainage - Coco Peat holds 8-9 times its weight in water.
  • Low compaction - Tough, coarse fibers resist crushing. More airspace means more oxygen can reach roots.
  • Low maintenance - Requires less maintenance than usual potting mixes as it retains moisture and nutrients.
  • Environmentally friendly - has the ability to store and release nutrients to plants for extended periods of time.
  • Disease-resistance - Less humidity due to good drainage means fewer diseases strike seedlings grown in coco.
  • Worm growth
  • Nutrient balance
