Coir Coco peat is the natural fiber that is found on the outer husk of the coconut which can be used as a soil additive or as a growing medium on its own for a variety of plants.
Coco peat may have excess salts and thus needs to be washed. It has good water and fertilizer retention (due to its good CEC value) and it re-wets much easier than some mediums.
Coco peat may often form part of apotting soil mix. It forms the basis of many seedling mixes, including our own, and is great for growing flowers in and as the medium is slow to degrade it can last up to 7 years in a rose growing mix.
Farmers of cannabis, vegetables, fruit and berries employ coco peat extensively in their operations, usually in grow bags. Tree seedlings also do very well in coco peat as the medium has a long lifespan.
As coco peat is lightweight and has excellent water retention capabilities home gardeners use it as an additive in their soils but particularity for wall and rooftop gardens.

I can highly recommend this superb product. I use it in a mix for my orchids. Also use it in growing media for hoyas and other indoor plants. A superior product that is essential for my success with several plants.
I love using this coco peat as an all-round soil additive to improve soil quality and water retention/avoid compaction, and it's high quality, nice and fluffy, hygienic, and nicely packaged if you want to save some for later. I collect my orders as it's close to my home, and it's always a pleasure dealing with their super friendly staff :)
