Coconut Coir Coconut Coir is a 100% natural by-product of harvesting coconut. Coir consists of the coarse fibers extracted from the husk on the outer shell of a coconut. Because of its superior water holding capacity, excellent air space and drainage, coir is a useful soil amendment for potted plants, containers and gardens. Coir is a sustainable alternative to peat moss - it does not produce the same environmental damage caused by peat mining and grows quickly for harvest. In addition, coir is easier to hydrate and lasts longer in soil than peat moss. Coir’s neutral pH of 5.8–6.8 allows it to efficiently release nutrients to plant roots and reduces the need to use dolomite lime in the garden. How to use Coir When used in sandy soils, coir helps to keep nutrients and moisture close to plant roots instead of washing away. When used in clay soils, coir helps to break up hard-packed earth and move nutrients and moisture through the soil. By adding one part coir to two parts soil or potting mix containing compost, you can make a perfect growing medium for potted plants or an outdoor garden or raised bed. Coir comes compressed into bricks, which makes for easy, convenient storage. Add water and soak your brick for at least 1 hour before using it. A fully-hydrated brick can hold eight to ten times its volume in water. The final volume of the expanded coir depends on the amount of water used to constitute it. By maintaining a consistent level of moisture and air and by being naturally disease and weed free, coir creates a perfect environment for starting seeds and cuttings and can be used as a seed-starting medium.
