Coco Coir Pallet Discs
Coco Discs are pressed discs made from carefully selected coco peat. They are constructed of coarse coco material derived from the coconut husk and have been carefully chosen to assist seedlings in developing a robust root system. These discs are designed to keep weeds out of plant pots and landscaping plants and can help save water by lowering evaporation from the soil media due to their high water absorption capacity.
Main applications of coco coir discs and pellets include :
- Seed starting: Coco coir discs and pellets are commonly used as seed-starting mediums. They provide a sterile, weed-free environment for seedlings to germinate and develop a strong root system.
- Hydroponics: Coco coir discs and pellets are used in hydroponic systems as a soilless growing medium. They provide an ideal balance of air and water for plant roots to grow and absorb nutrients.
- Container gardening: Coco coir discs and pellets are also used as a growing medium for container plants. They provide excellent water retention and aeration, helping plants to grow healthy and strong.
- Soil amendment: Coco coir discs and pellets can be used as a soil amendment to improve soil structure and water retention. They are often mixed with garden soil or potting mixes to improve drainage and aeration.
- Mulching: Coco coir discs and pellets can be used as a natural mulch to suppress weed growth and retain moisture in the soil.
- Animal bedding: Coco coir discs and pellets can also be used as animal bedding for small animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, and chickens.
Coco Coir Pallet Discs FAQ
What are coco coir discs?
The discs are made from Coco Peat, which is made from the dust and fibers of the coconut husk. This is 100% natural, biodegradable, and eco-friendly, and free from soil-borne pathogens and weeds! Each 10cm disc is 1.5L. With 10 included, this is for 15L total.
How do you use coco coir discs?
Just add water to the coir disc to expand it into its full size, and then gently push seeds down into the disc before placing it into the plant pot or tray. Once the seed has germinated into a healthy seedling, you can plant the entire disc in your garden.
What are the two types of coir?
There are two types of coir: the more commonly used brown fibre, which is obtained from mature coconuts, and finer white fibre, which is extracted from immature green coconuts after soaking for up to 10 months.
