Coconut fiber is a natural and organic product, proceeded from coconut shell.
It is mainly used for its high aeration capacity and water retention when it is mixed with white or black peat.
Coconut fiber retains nutrients with great facility and is perfect for all types of cultivation.
For our production, we use blocks of coconut fiber that are leftovers from the extraction of the coconut shell, with the advantage that this material is organic and completely biodegradable.
We use two types of coconut:
Our raw material comes from India and Sri Lanka and is treated with steam in order to desinfect it with a safe manner and respecting the environment.
We can offer our clients a buffered or unbuffered coco for their substrate. Buffering is a process that consists in replacing sodium and potassium into calcium. This is achieved by immersing the coconut fiber into calcium nitrate and then washing it with fresh water.
This method allows to reduce the electro-conductivity (EC) and the reduction of the sodium and potassium content allows a better control of the plant feeding.
