Coco peat is a common soil amendment favored by many gardeners. Although poor in nutrients, it is beneficial because it improves air circulation, soil structure, moisture retention and water drainage simultaniously. It is also widely used as a seed germination and seedling growing substrate and lately gaining its popularity amongst hydroponic gardeners. It is an excellent addition to the potting soil mix to prevent container gardens from drying out too fast. Coco peat is a sustainable substitute for peat moss which is nowadays stripped in huge quantities and at a rate that largely surpasses its growth. Harvesting peat moss threatens the environment in many ways therefore many gardeners are opting for coco coir as an eco-friendly alternative.
