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.

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.
