The Best Coco Substrates For You
Coco or Coir is often used as a generic term to define all the parts of the coconut beyond the hard inner shell. Many do not know, however, that suspended in between the fibers is a fine, porous material which acts to insulate the inner part of the coconut called coco-peat. It is also referred to as coco dust or coco pith. Pith is the spongy material that binds the coconut fiber in the coconut husk. This material is very absorbent that is made up of thousands of minute “tubes” which trap and retain liquid. This unique tube-like structure of the coir enables plants that are suspended in a hydroponic solution to remain moist while allowing air to easily circulate to the roots thereby optimizing the growth of the plants.
