I. Introduction to coconut coir

Coconut coir, also known as coco peat, coco fiber, or simply coir, is a natural material derived from the husk of coconut. It is the fibrous material found between the hard, internal shell and the outer coat of a coconut. The common blend of coco coir includes fine peat (powder material),  fiber (string material), and chips – small chunks (coarse material). Coco coir is a widely used growing medium in horticulture and hydroponics due to its desirable aeration, good water-holding capacity, high nutrient uptake, and high air-filled porosity. It is renewable, biodegradable, and environmentally friendly, making it a popular alternative to peat moss or any traditional soil in many applications.

II. Introducing: Coco Coir’s Products

1. Treated coco coir

Treated coco coir has a reddish-brown and high moisture content after the process of being washed multiple times with clean water. After the proper treatment, coco coir will have the EC at the right level, 0.5mS/cm or less. This is the ratio fitted to most of the crops for multiple purposes such as starting seeds, propagating, transplanting seedlings, and some other uses.

As a consequence of rising demand, the appearance of low-quality, low-grade, and unidentified products is also taking over the market. This leads to the expected reaction of consumers who are worried about what they are using to grow the plants, thus resulting in purchasing raw coconut coir themselves and treating it in their way or basing off of online instructions. This method also has the potential of faulty procedures and affects the plants negatively.

Naturally, to get trustworthy sources and well-processed coconut coir, buyers should consider securing their supplies from reliable providers that are easy to trace back. We, Coco Coir Global, are confident and also proud to be one. Follow us and see what we got to offer you.

2. Untreated coco coir

These have a light brown coloring and have a rough feeling on your hand. In particular, it has a relatively high EC level and would be recommended against using it for plants. Instead, Untreated coco coir could act as bedding for animals or make-shifts such as coir carpets, and coconut brick.

As aforementioned, customers have their fair share of worries about whether their purchase is of the right quality or not, some would result in the same ending by wanting to cut costs and treat the raw coir themselves – it is as risky as buying coir from unknown sources, and is likely to not only bringing the opposite of expected outcome in terms of crops grow, but also negatively affect the human’s health. Buying from a trusted and traceable source might not be cost-saving in comparison, but users can be confident in the result of their agriculture production, whilst being free of potentially fatal risks that they would face otherwise.

3. Loose coconut coir

III. Advantages and application of coconut coir

Advantages of using coir:

Organic substrate:

Coconut coir is an organic material that comes 100% from dried coconut husk. This is a safe-to-use and environmentally-friendly growing substrate. Besides, it is free from pests and diseases that can be found in other planning materials such as traditional soils. Coir is a renewable and compostable source of material, making it ideal for soil improvement by making the soil structure, as well as water and nutritions absorption capability, hence pushing plants and crops to grow stronger and healthier.

Environmental Friendly:

The coconut husks which are used to create coir were once considered industrial waste that have to be disposed of by means that’d affect the environment negatively. The growing trend of processing husk into a substrate, undoubtedly has helped solve the was-once-growing problem of waste that coconut factories faced, it has also benefited agriculture as a whole. Coco coir substrate has, is, and will always be playing a vital role in the development of high-tech agriculture alongside the application of advanced technology, approaching the goal of outputting green, clean, and delectable cultivation products that positively benefit consumers’ health.

Keeping a stable moisture:

With absorbent properties that are capable of holding water 10 times its weight, coir is the perfect substrate for vegetations that require moisture to be maintained at a suitable amount regularly.

Descend drainage and air flow:

Not only able to hold water but coco peat also excels at keeping decent breathability, in this case providing an ideal environment for the plant’s roots with just enough liquid and air for development and avoiding root rot.

Balance pH level:

The pH scaling inside the substrate is also essential to plants in terms of their nutrient absorbability and growth ability. Therefore providing a suitable substrate with appropriate pH balance is compulsory for not just delicate flora but for cultivatories as a whole. Post-treating coir is perfectly placed in the neutral pH measurement that can be easily modified for plants with a different requirement for said element without the need to use any supplementarity.

Multi-purpose substrate.

Depending on the purpose, cultivators can use coconut peat as a standalone substrate, or mixing it with soil  as a means to improve deteriorated land, create a nutrient-rich growing medium, or as a substance to make various potting mixes, serving the demand to grow different plants.

Long life span and cost efficiency

Coco coir can be reused for multiple growing cycles with little degradation in quality, making it a cost-effective choice for gardeners.


Coir is not only full of upsides, but it also varied in uses of categories of fields, but its application in agriculture is more well-known in comparison. Following are some leading uses:

Seed germination and propagation

Having the unique attribute of being able to hold enough water while still maintaining a breathing room, coco peat provides an ideal habitat for seeds to grow into healthy sprouts and for cuttings to raise as new plants. These are one of the most important steps to determine a plant’s long-term health.

Propagating Seed germination and propagation

Hydroponic farming

There is no strange in saying coco coir is the most popular substrate for hydroponic farming. Besides being the most suitable substrate for this type of cultivation, it is also a cost-efficient choice that lifts growers of the worry of risk relating to the uses of traditional substrates in modern farming structures using high-end technology.


Small-scale farming or garden farming

To individual cultivators who follow a scaled-down model, the act of using coir in troughs and other containers like pots or boxes is the most optimal way. Planters are free to choose whatever they want to grow in their mini garden without taking too much effort or money spent to keep them growing healthy. It’s an environmentally friendly way to effectively produce products while still remaining profitable enough to last.

Making multiple types of potting mixes 

Coco coir is also applied in making various kinds of nutrient-rich potting mixes. To name some of the features when mixing coco coir with other substances/growing materials to become ideal growing substrates for multiple plants: lightweight, well-draining, and highly absorbent. Coco coir is also pH-neutral, meaning it will not affect the acidity of the soil or harm sensitive plants. When used as part of a potting mix, coco coir helps improve soil aeration and water retention, promoting healthy root growth and increasing the overall nutrient uptake of the plants.

Soil-improvement and anti-erosion

Whether by natural causes or man-made, there are a number of reasons leading up to the deterioration of lands, the loss of original attributes, and inherited fertility. Therefore, cultivators have to find ways to improve their land and ensure the continued use of it. When mixed with deteriorated soil, coconut coir lends hands in the process of creating a mixture of substrate that has substantial improvement in structure, water, and nutrient retention, aeration, making it easier for plant roots to develop. Besides providing said improvements for the crops and plants, it also benefits the land itself, making it harder to be washed away and effectively combat erosions.

Providing a cover to plants

Besides providing help amongst the roots, coco coir can also do a similar thing above ground. By adding a layer of coir above the soil, it provides moisture retention and controls temperature features to plants whilst preventing the growth of unwanted weeds.


Being a substance for organic fertilizer production

With the ability to biodegrade, coco coir is usually chosen as a perfect auxiliary substrate to participate in the process of producing and improving the quality of organic fertilizer. To be more in detail, coir has its fair share of carbon components, which is able to balance out nitre which is abundant in compost fertilizer.


Ideal bedding for animals

Coco coir is also known as an excellent animal bedding material. It is highly absorbent, thus helps reduce odors, making it ideal for use in animal habitats. Coco coir also retains moisture well, allowing it to help regulate humidity in the enclosure. Additionally, it is natural, organic and biodegradable, making it a safe and environmentally-friendly option for animal bedding.
