Compressed Coconut Pith Block

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.
  • Contains naturally occurring macro-nutrients, micro-nutrients and trace elements.
  • Free from bacteria and fungal spores


Aside from being a great medium to use for micro-green growing in our incubation trays, coconut husk can also be used for;
    • Hydroponic microgreen growing
    • Distributing heat from heat mats
    • Plant germination

    Usage instructions:

      • Soak in water for 10 minutes
      • Place in microgreen growth tray
      • Add seeds over the top (pack densely as the sprouts will support each other's vertical aspirations)
      • Top up with a little bit more water until the trays are almost covered
      • Place under a grow light or sunlight and check-in when required.
