Coconut coir is the pith part of the coconut husk (shell) that emerges from the husking process. Long fibers are extracted for environmentally safe growing products, ropes, mattresses, and cushions, and coconut pith is the binding material that remains. A special grade of coconut coir is washed, screened, graded, and processed in various coconut coir products for horticultural & agricultural uses. It is a homogenous material composed of millions of capillary micro-sponges, which absorb and hold up 8+ times its own weight in water. Carbon-rich coir balances nitrogen-rich kitchen scraps in compost and this size works better than large blocks. This sale is for one brick of compacted coconut coir, also known as cocopeat. Each convenient size brick weighs approximately 230g and produces approximately 1.2 gallon. Brick sizes may vary, but each is the minimum weight (sold by weight, not volume). Bricks are wrapped individually in paper or clear wrapping. ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY 100% NATURAL SUSTAINABLE ALTERNATIVE TO PEAT MOSS--Coir doesn't produce the same environmental damage caused by peat mining & hydrates easier & lasts longer in soil. Triumph Plant coir is conditioned for a neutral pH & low salt content. Lab testing yielded a pH of 6.3, salt (as sodium chloride) of 1,875 ppm, & electrical conductivity of 0.23 mS/cm. Measurements vary from brick to brick. Coir releases nutrients to plant roots & reduces need for dolomite lime. In sandy soils, nutrients & moisture stay close to plant roots (not washing away). In clay soils, coir helps break up hard-packed earth, so nutrients & moisture move through the soil.
