A Truly Remarkable Use for Coconut Husk, Translating To All Organic Soil Alternative!

13 Key Benefits of EnvironSoil™ Coir

Coco coir is made from the outer husk – the part between the seed and the shell – of coconuts. The husk is processed in one of several ways to produce a growing and mulching medium

1: Provides Drainage

Coco Coir is known for its water retention properties, but it also allows for proper drainage and prevents water logging of plant roots, reducing the chance for root rot. This makes coir a good choice not only for use as potting soil but also for seed starting purposes.

2: Hard to Overwater

Because coir drains so well, it’s tough to overwater plants that are housed within this medium. Overwatering is a common mistake made by plant lovers and gardeners, but with a quality product like coir, it’s tougher to drown roots and suffocate plants.

3: Aerates Soil

Coco coir is fluffy like peat moss, so it provides exceptional aeration for plant roots. It does break down at a faster rate, but overall, the lightweight fibers provide enough air pockets for roots to breathe.

4: Promotes Root Growth

Nutrient dense and moisture friendly, coco coir promotes a healthy environment for plant roots to thrive. Roots require room to grow, air, water, and nutrients to grow and expand properly.

5: Neutral pH

Unlike peat moss, which has a slightly acidic pH, coir is neutral. Using coir as potting soil or mulching your plants with it won’t have a significant impact on your soil’s pH.

6: Contains Useful Micronutrients

Coir isn’t merely an inert growing medium. It contains helpful micronutrients such as magnesium and calcium, which can directly benefit plants.

7: Doesn't Compact

Some growing mediums compact too easily. Compacting is not ideal for plants and can hinder root growth. It’s the reason you shouldn’t walk on your garden soil. Pressing down and compacting the soil limits the formation of air pockets and can leave the earth hard and clumpy, when what most plants really want is a well-aerated medium that’s light and fluffy.

8: Inexpensive

Coco coir is a relatively inexpensive growing medium and has a comparable price tag to peat moss.

9: Handles better than Peat

Have you ever tried to use peat moss in the garden? It’s incredibly dry out of the bag, which makes it tough to re-hydrate. Although peat does retain moisture, re-hydrating it takes some patience. Coco coir, on the other hand, absorbs moisture readily and takes a lot less time to re-hydrate.

10: Sanitary

Like peat, coco coir is pest and disease-free, so you don’t have to worry about weeds or diseases when using the medium for starting seedlings or mulching plants.

11: Can Be Recycled

Recall that we mentioned that coir is eco-friendly because it’s a renewable resource? Not only because it grow on trees, though. You can also re-use this medium. Did you use coir to grow seedlings this spring? Don’t throw it out! Use it right away to mulch your transplants.

12: Ecofriendly

Coco coir is a better alternative to peat moss thanks to the fact that it’s renewable. Sourced from coconuts grown on trees, it’s possible to re-plant and continually harvest this resource. Coconut trees, after all, produce many coconuts in a single year. Recent technological advances have also made it easier to transform and manufacture coco coir making it readily available and cost-effective. Peat, on the other hand, comes from bogs. These bogs are a critical natural habitat for many species. Not only does peat take an incredibly long time to form, making it a non-renewable resource, but its harvest also represents a threat to nearby species and ecosystems.

13: Easy to Transport

Coco coir is often sold in compacted blocks, and these blocks are lightweight and easy to transport. The weight of this medium makes it easy to take home from your local nursery without worrying about hurting your vehicle’s suspension. It also means that it’s relatively easy to purchase online and you won’t be overwhelmed by shipping costs. You can also store coir bricks if you have limited space.


Ways to Use It

What are some popular ways to use this growing medium? Here are a few:

  • Hydroponic growing – the hygienic, pest and disease-free nature of this medium make it ideal for this type of growing
  • Potting soil medium – coco coir works well as an indoor plant potting medium thanks to its ability to retain moisture. You’ll kill fewer plants because you likely won’t need to water as frequently.
  • Mulch – Add to outdoor beds as a mulch to help conserve moisture.
  • Seed starting – Coir is a sanitary choice for starting seedlings that promotes healthy root growth.

How To Use Coco Coir

Here are some helpful tips in using EnvironSoil Coco Coir:

Okay, So you’ve purchased a few coco coir bricks from us, and they’ve arrived at your doorstep. You’ll need to rehydrate the medium to turn the compact, lightweight block into a fluffy substrate. I suggest using a large bucket or wheelbarrow to re-hydrate coir. You’ll have enough space to add water, and once the stuff is sufficiently fluffed, it’ll be easy to transport to whenever you need it in your garden.

While coir re-hydrates faster than peat, you’ll still need a bit of patience. Use warm water and slowly pour it over your brick. Add a little bit of water at a time. You don’t want to over-hydrate the coco coir. It may take some time for the brick to soften up and the fibers to expand.


It is evident that coir is a multipurpose and valued product. Grown in nature and containing innate qualities that allow processing without harsh chemicals, its production has led to self-sufficiency without harsh ecological damage. This confirms that the coconut palm truly is a giving tree.
