Coco fiber is an excellent alternative to peat. Coco fiber or "coir" is made from coconut husks and is a renewable resource. It lasts longer than peat, has superior disease resistance, nutrient storage, and water retention, holding 8 to 9 times its weight in water. Organic and biodegradable, it has been tested extensively as a plant growth medium. Used in greenhouse and bedding plant production, on golf courses, in landscaping and erosion control. Bales are compressed 1:5 and expand to a fluffy, dark brown, great smelling "peat" when warm water is added.
