American Agritech has sourced the world's most premium coir fiber. CocoGro is composed of long fibers and is double-sieved to reduce dust and give ample air space within the mix. CocoGro has excellent drainage properties and can be used over a longer period of time than coir fiber with shorter fibers. With longer fibers and reduced dust, growers will experience an optimal air-to-water ratio, which is vital for strong root development. CogoGro is unique because it is not chemically treated like other coir fibers on the market. CocoGro is a superior coir fiber because it is aged a minimum of 18 months and has finished its decomposition stage. In addition, CocoGro is exposed to rain water from at least three monsoon seasons, which naturally washes away harmful salts out of the final product. Most other coir fibers are only 4 to 5 months old and have excessive potassium and salts and thus have to be chemically treated.
Coco coir contains a natural source of rooting hormones, helps protect against root diseases, and successfully supports plants' structures. Similar in appearance to peat moss, high quality coco coir such as CocoGro can even be used in flood & drain systems with amazing results (most other brands of coir on the market can only be used in overhead watering systems, such as drip systems or hand watered). An excellent medium by itself, you can also add up to 50% rocks or perlite for a highly effective, inexpensive growing medium.
Each individually wrapped 5kg bale expands to make 65-70 liters of media when mixed with 3 gallons of water (approximately 3 cu ft.). Approximate dimensions are 11" x 11" x 7".
