Apart from sustainability, the structure of coir is ideally suited for growing and can last longer than peat or any other type of growing medium. So, this longevity means it offers consumers better value for money.
On the chemical parameters, coconut fibre, has a pH range of 5.2 to 6.8, which is more acceptable and tolerated by a wider range of plants. A well-washed batch, will lower the Ec (<0.5) which makes it a perfect companion for all plant types. Coco coir also drains better and keeps the roots oxygenated more than standard peat-based mediums.
