Coir is the fibrous material found between the hard, internal shell and the outer coat of a coconut. This fibrous husk is commonly used in household products such as floor mats, doormats, brushes and mattresses. For the hydroponic gardener, it’s best known as a spongy, soilless growing medium that may be added to soil or potting media to increase moisture retention, drainage, and aeration. Coconut coir is also known as coco peat – which is the growing medium most people think of when they hear the name coco coir.
Coco coir is known to support strong root growth, and because of this it is often used to start seeds as well as grow hydroponically. Coco coir has been used throughout history; ropes made of coconut fiber have been in use since ancient times, and ship ropes and rigging made from coir have been recorded as far back as the 11th century AD.
More recently, coco coir was manufactured to make floor coverings in the late 1800’s in the UK, and it’s still being used today for everything from floormats to mattresses. For hydroponic gardeners, coco coir is still a good choice when growing in a way that’s organic and environmentally sustainable.
In hydroponics, coco coir is known to produce quick harvests and big yields. With the right nutrients, the plants won’t need to search for food so all their energy is focused on growing. Coco coir also helps the plant grow a strong root system because it provides excellent water retention, drainage, and aeration. Whatever the grow is, more roots means more fruits!
