Coir – Cocopeat benefits
Benefits of the Coir (Cocopeat) as a growing media
Cocopeat is an organic material and its production is part of the many uses of the coco nut. When using Cocopeat for hydroponic growing the environment is not harmed.
Cocopeat is an excellent substrate for root development and therefore transplanting can be made directly into the Cocopeat with no need for any further treatment or agent.
Unlike other soilless cultures, Coco holds high air capacity even when completely saturated.
The drying duration of Cocopeat is slower than many hydroponics mediums (not including Crush coir- cocopeat material), even though Cocopeat holds more air when completely saturated.
With time the Cocopeat develops a high buffer capacity that will enable the plants to overcome a short time deficiency of fertilizers and water. The ability to choose a different fraction or mix of PelemixCocopeat enables the grower to choose the most suitable growing media that will give the best results in a given climate.
