COCOS PRODUCTS

 

BENEFITS AND FEATURES

Coco pith can be an excellent substitute for peatmoss. In cultivations in which it is important to keep the substrate (temporarily) dry, coco pith also provides quick and effortless rehydration. Coco pith thus prevents water and nutrients to be lost and pots to float.

Good cocos products have the following characteristics:

  • buffered adsorbtioncomplex
  • high rate of air
  • good water buffer
  • high stability and good structure
  • low on weed

There are various cocos products which can be used, both in pure form as in mixtures with other cocos products. A large number of cocos products are being used in mixtures with peatmoss as well. The composition of the mixture depends on cultivation, growing conditions and the requirements of the grower. Our specialists can help you with further advice.

COCO PITH

Coco pith (or coir pith) is used to rehydrate, as a basis for smaller pots, as the basis for a large number of mixtures and as a pure substrate suitable for a wide range of cultivations and growing conditions. Coco pith is available from our locations in the Netherlands in bulk, in big bales, packed in big bags or in mixtures. In addition, coco pith is available compressed in 5 kg blocks and 650 gram briquettes from the Netherlands and India.

COCO CRUSH / CHIPS

Coco crush / chips is used as the basis for larger pot sizes and cultivations that need a higher percentage of air. Adding the correct size coco crush or chips in a mixture will result in a substantially higher percentage of air. The more equal the mix, the better the result. Therefore, the pieces should not be too large. Crush and chips can be used as pure substrate and in mixtures. Coco crush and coco chips are available from our locations in the Netherlands in bulk, in big bales, packed in big bags or in mixtures. In addition, it is available compressed in 5 kg blocks from the Netherlands and Sri Lanka.

DOUBLE SIEVED PITH

In this material the fine and coarse particles are sieved out of the coco pith. This material is particularly suitable for cutting- and seedmixtures and are therefore often used as pure substrate. It creates an optimal connection between the young roots and the substrate with a relatively high rate of air and an optimal humidity. Double sieved pith is available from our locations in the Netherlands in bulk, in big bales, packed in big bags or in mixtures. In addition, double sieved pith is available compressed in 5 kg blocks and 650 gram briquettes from the Netherlands and India.

COCO FIBER

Coco fiber is used to improve water transport in a mixture. It provides a rapid drainage of water, but also provides a faster water uptake in systems where water is given through the bottom. Coco fiber is therefore always used in a mixture. Because of the specific function of coco fiber, it needs to be strong, straight and about 2 to 3 centimeters long. Too thin coco fiber will decompose too fast. Coco fiber that is not straight or too short will not conduct water. Coco fiber that is too long can not be equally divided in a mixture. From our factories in the Netherlands, cocofiber is available in a mixture with peatmoss or cocos products, or as an additive in various mixtures. In addition, the Coco fiber is available in compressed form on pallets from the Netherlands and India.

GROWBAGS

Growbags are compressed slabs in a plastic cover for various crops. The growbags are shipped dry. Once rewetted in the greenhouse, they are ready for use. Growbags are available in a large variety of sizes and mixtures, both with and without plant and drain holes. The plastic is U.V. resistant, black inside and white outside. We can help you choose the most suitable mixture, size and qualitiy.

COCOS DISKS

Cocos disks are compressed discs which often consist of the somewhat coarser cocos varieties. After rewetting the material directly fills the pot. The discs are available in a variety of sizes, grades and mixtures. Please contact us for the various possibilities.

WEEDS PROTECTION DISCS

Weed Protection discs are discs of coco peat fiber with a latex layer. The mats are used to cover pots and thereby prevent weed grow. These mats are available in many sizes.
