Our coconut coir products are organic, guaranteed to be very high quality and very low salt content. Very low level of EC is attained by repithed washing with fresh water. When using coco pith as growing medium, we highly recommend buffering of coco pith products. Plantonix coir pith is a premier growing medium and is an excellent alternative to pith moss. Our coco pith is free from dirt, foreign material and weed seeds. Applications include hydroponics, commercial potting soil mixed, direct soil amendment, compost amendment, animal/livestock bedding, reptile bedding, liquid absorbing compound.
When using coco peat as growing medium, we highly recommend buffering of coco peat products. The buffering process involves pre-soaking the coir for 12-24 hours with a buffering solution high in calcium; this displaces the sodium and balances the naturally occurring potassium. After the soaking period the media is washed with water, this removes the displaced sodium, leaving the calcium in the coir. This buffering process prevents unwanted draw down or 'lockout' of calcium and magnesium, and avoids sodium toxicity issues.
