Rp 10.000 – Rp 100.000
A great amendment for improving soil and potting mix drainage and is particularly helpful in improving soil aeration by creating air pockets in the potting substrate and soil. In sandy soils coco coir retains nutrients and moisture. As an amendment for clay-based soil, coir improves soil quality by preventing compaction and allowing freer movement of moisture and nutrients. Coconut fibers will break down over time, adding to the organic matter content and health of the soil.
Coir is a versatile substance used to improve difficult soil. After fibers have decomposed, it is recommended to add some fresh coconut fiber to ensure the soil is properly aerated. Soil pH – Coir has a near-neutral pH level of 5.5 to 6.8, unlike peat, which is highly acidic with a pH of 3.5 to 4.5. This is an ideal pH for most plants, with the exception of acid-loving plants like rhododendron, blueberries and azaleas.
In your garden or for your potted plants you can mix up to 30% coir with your soil or potting mix. Coir is nice on its own but even better when combined with other amendments such as rice hulls
Coconut fiber (or coir) is a natural product extracted from the outer husk of a coconut. It’s not too absorbent, which is good because your growing media needs air pockets with good drainage in order to provide oxygen to the root zone. Coconut fibers are also used in products such as floor mats, doormats, brushes and mattresses and flower pots.
