This means that it doesn’t get washed through the mix quite so quickly. Besgrow Classic Coir is a high quality, versatile growing substrate produced from the pith of coconut husks. It’s an excellent additive for potting mixes, as its high water holding capacity promotes rapid root and foliage growth.
Coir is a 100% natural, organic material that is supplied in a dried, compressed form. It is simple and easy to re-hydrate.
Its excellent water holding and re-wetting properties makes Classic Coir ideal for plants that require higher levels of hydration.
