Get Your Coconut Coir!
Coconut bricks with real bricks for size comparison.
Coir is a completely sustainable byproduct of coconut husk that was once simply discarded, but now is used to grow plants. So basically if you use it, you are saving the environment, one brick at a time.
- Coir has a neutral Ph level (unlike peat moss, which is acidic), which allows for plants to thrive.
- It quickly drains excess water, but also maintains excess water if plants are dehydrated.
- It comes in a very nifty compressed packaging upon purchase, which is perfect for the modern urban farmer. It is relatively lightweight, weighing between 11 and 17 pounds.
- Coconut coir expands 6-10 times its size when water is added. Kind of like those ‘90’s bath toys that grow in water. An expanded brick will expand to 1.5 cubic feet!
- It is also a great product for filling in-ground beds, pots or just about anywhere you want to grow plants. It is also used as bedding for worms (vermicomposting), for growing mushrooms, and for hydroponics.
- We are selling it right here in D.C., so you can get a great deal at $9 a brick (expanded) or $11 a brick (compressed).
- If you are interesting in purchasing a pallet (100 bricks), we offer a prorated price.
