Sterilized cocopeat for hydroponics and container gardening.
Sterilized cocopeat is an excellent hydroponic medium, soil amendment, seed starter and cutting propagation medium. Cocopeat is also known as “coco coir dust” or simply “coco dust.”
What is cocopeat?
Cocopeat is a by-product of the coconut industry, making it eco-friendly. It’s completely organic and biodegradable.
Cocopeat is inert and has a high water holding capacity making it ideal as a hydroponic growing medium.
Our cocopeat are sourced from the Philippines. Unlike cocopeat from other coconut producing nations, Philippine cocopeat does not incorporate sea water as part of its production process. It is completely free from salt and is thus ideal for use with hydroponic systems and for plants that require inert and salt free medium such as carnivorous plants (ex. Venus fly traps, pitcher plants).
Our cocopeat is not saturated with water to increase volume or weight. It only has enough moisture to keep it from totally drying up. Dried cocopeat hydrophobic making difficult to get wet and absorb water.
