Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

There are several questions that may arise in a grower’s mind, making them skeptical about using coco coir for their plants. It is time to clear out the confusion. Here is a list of some questions that may be circulating in your mind.

Is coco coir a good source of nutrients for plants?

Firstly, coco coir does not contain any nutrients, so it is not a source of nutrients. Secondly, this is a reason why growers use it so frequently. You might be wondering what is the point of using coco as a grow medium when it cannot provide plants with the right amount of nutrients. Well, the fact that this medium is fully inert gives a grower complete control of what they feed to the plant.

You can add the desired amount of nutrients to it, something not mandatory when using garden soil or potting soil. Just like traditional soil, you will have to test your grow media regularly to ensure that it is in optimal conditions. The factors that you will have to keep track of include pH, moisture, and PPM among others.

Does coco have a neutral pH?

The pH of your grow media is very critical as it contributes to the growth of the plant. Coco has a neutral pH, unlike other mediums that are more acidic, requiring continuous pH monitoring. The pH of coco generally ranges between 5.2 and 6.8.

Is it possible to mix coco coir with soil?

Yes, mixing coco coir with soil is possible, and the mixture provides the plants with the benefits of both coco coir and soil. If you wish to keep the medium soilless, you can mix coco with a soilless mixture. If that is not the case, you can soak coco and mix it with soil in a pot in a 50/50 proportion. This mixture aids the development of baby plants as it helps a grower control the intake of nutrients by the roots. Starting your seeds or clone in this mixture is a smart choice.
