Coco Fiber Bale of 120kg FAQ
Are coco coir and coco fibre the same?
Coco coir is actually a byproduct of the coconut fiber industry. Between the outer husk and the actual coconut is a layer of fibrous threads. While the outer husk and coconut may be used for textiles and other coconut products, the coco coir is usually set aside.
What are the two types of coconut fiber?
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.
What are the disadvantages of coco coir?Absorption and over-watering Coco coir
