Customer Questions & Answers

You're calling this coco peat. Is this compressed peat moss or is it compressed coconut fiber?

Asked by: Vemont
The proper name is coco coir. It is not peat. Peat is the compressed remains of sphagnum moss and it is found in deep bogs in North America. It is not a renewable resource. Coco coir is renewable in that it begins as a by-product from coconut processing (it comes from coconut hulls). So, yes, it is coconut fiber.

Can this also be used as a mulch?

Asked by: MotherPlant
Peat is great for mulch, but these seem little for a mulching project.

Maybe a silly question, but how do you use it?

Do you put plants directly in it, mix it with dirt, cover top of soil of potted plants? My succulents have been getting lice all summer long. I don't want to bring them in and infect other plants. Thank you!
Asked by: FatKitty
I used it in the bottom of my pots to partially block the drainage holes to keep the soil mix from spilling through.You can carefully lift layers of it and place them in the bottom of the pot. The potting directions for my desert rose succulent called for this type peat for the growing medium. Also said let it get completely dry between watering.

Coco Peat Brick (3-Set) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff, and fun, too! This stuff is great. Coconut coir in just the right length of fiber to make a great basis for your own mix of planting medium, filler, or worm bedding (for vermicomposting). I appreciate the way it rehydrates and expands with ease, too - simply break it up and drop the pieces in a bucket, add water, and watch it fluff - then reach in and break it apart to help every bit get hydrated. This is a job kids would love, "magically" turning these crispy bricks into a fluffy brown medium. Yes, highly recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Actually 90% less than stated volume (0.612 cu ft NOT 6.12 cu ft) The dry volume is specified here to be 6.12 cu ft but is actually only 0.612 cu ft. The other reviewers were very generous about the amount received. This is probably a decimal point error after converting from dry quarts. Dry quarts is the unit measurement used by the manufacturer, whose stated yield of 18 dry quarts is far closer to the actual amount you get (16 dry quarts or 0.612 cu ft). Since my first review was rejected for mentioning the manufacturer's web site I won't name them/it (even though you can clearly see both on the enlarged product image). It seems that policing product reviews for wayward URLs is deemed more important than correcting grossly inaccurate product specs which show the dry volume at 10X more than the actual product. Coco peat is not normally anywhere near this expensive by compressed weight or volume. These bricks are extremely light (< 1lb) and barely compressed (can easily be completely broken up by hand). By FAR the worst value I've seen for this type of product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not what you pay for for almost the same price i was able to get 20 lbs from another source. online description says 6 cu ft , i got about 2 cu ft. should have returned,

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't get nearly as much as the description says The description said that these bricks are 6 cu ft, they didn't seem to make any where near that much. I still had to go out and buy peat moss for my garden, which I was hoping to not have to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well This product does what it is suppose to do. I put one brick in a plastic tube, added warm water and presto: it swells up to create a large amount of material that is used in place of peat moss. I use this in the "Square Foot Gardening" method by mixing 1/3 potting soil, 1/3 coco peat and 1/3 vermiculite. So far all my plants love this stuff and I'll continue using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the cost Great product. It saved on watering and I noticed a big difference between my plants that had the coco peat and the ones that didn't. Would recommend it to gardeners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coco Coir You offered this type product in-store in 2014, but not in 2015. Serious gardeners like this. Bring it back.
