• WHAT IS THE COMPOSITION OF COCONUT HUSK?

    Coconut husk contains 60%-70%of coco pith, 30%-40% of coco fiber on dry weight basis.

    WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN COCO FIBRE COCO PEAT & HUSK CHIPS?

    Coco fiber is obtained from scraping out the pithy tissues from the husk. This can be done through either wet milling or dry milling. More consistent fiber & coco pith can only be obtained from wet milling. All the materials we use come from wet milling.

    Coco pith comes as a byproduct of fiber extraction. It is 100% natural organic growing medium and proven natural alternative to mined peat moss. It has low susceptibility to bio-degradation and highly porous structure enables excellent water absorbent properties, meaning that it can be hold and release nutrients to the plant over a prolonged period.

    Husk chips are obtained by shredding the husk. Husk chips contained both fiber and pithy tissues.

    WHAT ARE THE PROPERTIES OF COIR PITH AS PLANT GROWIN MEDIUM?
    • Fine granular structure allows excellent mixing with other raw materials
    • Coco peat has an optimal water to air ratio
    • Excellent wetting & re-wetting ability, even after total drying
    • Excellent water & nutrients holding capacity
    • Good drainage no water logged condition
    • Rate of deterioration is low; good for sensitive young plants and for long lasting cultures
    • High in lignin; good for stability
    • Superior Physical structure
    • Works similar to peat in products making use of the compression feature
    • Renewable source; no environmental impact
    WHAT ARE THE MAIN DIFFERENCES OF WASHED, UNWASHED & BUFFERED COIR PITH?

    Unwashed coco pith: 100% natural, high electrical conductivity.(EC)

    Washed coco pith: washed with water to reduce EC

    Buffered coco pith: some salt ions like potassium & sodium can’t be totally remove by only washing with water.

    Therefore we use buffering agent to remove those excess ions from the materials.

    WHAT ARE THE USES OF COIR PITH?
    • As a potting mix
    • Green houses
    • For tissue culture
    • As a hydroponic Growing substrate
    • Nursery & Garden centers
    • Seedling Nurseries
    • Mushroom farming
    • Golf course construction & lawn preparation
    • Horticulture and Floriculture applications
    • Home Gardening and for landscaping use
