At Char Coir, we know that a clean, high-quality medium is essential for optimal plant growth.
Char Coir comes from the highest-grade coco available. Our coco is sourced from one farm, ensuring consistency and quality.
Each batch comes with a chemical analysis available to the client and serves as a testament to our quality control standards.
Coco coir is an organic product derived from processing coconut husks from coconut trees grown in tropical and subtropical areas. The processing of coco husks to obtain coco coir involves a series of steps including aging, washing, rinsing, buffering, drying, grinding, grading, and compressing.
These steps are necessary to change the physical and chemical characteristics of coco coir so that it is suitable for plant growing.
Without proper processing, coco coir will have excessive salt content, resulting in problems with Pythium root rot. This can lead to nutritional imbalances, including calcium and magnesium deficiencies. Coco coir has a negatively charged complex.
The total number of cations it can hold and exchange, its total negative charge, is called Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC). Coco coir CEC varies between 40 and 60 meq/100g.
This means coco coir has the capacity to hold nutrients, but it also means it can lock them up leading to nutrient deficiencies.
