Coconut Pith is made by taking the part of the coconut between the outer shell and the seed coat of a coconut. It is a brilliant environmentally friendly solution for hydroponic growing that can be used in a completely renewable way.
There are countless reasons why coconut pith (also incorrectly known as peat) is one of the best hydroponic mediums to grow in including;
It is 100% organic and naturally grown
Great water retention - able to hold 8-9 times its weight in water
The medium is renewably produced and completely reusable
Biodegrades when mixed with regular soil
Great aeration - facilitating good oxygen supply to your plant roots.
It contains naturally occurring macro-nutrients, micro-nutrients and trace elements (although not enough to solar grow a plant without nutrients)
Free from bacteria and fungal spores
Large packs come in a compostable Bio bag. Small orders come in a brown paper bag. Zero waste
