It's been a while since I used this item; however, I seem to remember the package stated 'product of India.:

Does it come in one big brick of 11 lbs or they are broken down into pieces for future use?

Asked by Catherine November 20, 2020

Answers

Easiest way to break it down, is to add water to a large plastic bin and put the block(s) inside. Once they are wet they separate into the growing media. You can just keep them in the bin and use it as needed. They expand a lot. I would not recommend trying to chop it up while dry, unless you want to hate your life. I'm 73 and like my life. Said that from experience.

I own a market garden of both cut flowers and vegetables and thought we'd give this a try this year for starting our seedlings. It works perfectly! These are some of our seedlings being grown in this product! Delivery was fast, just a few days. I have zero dislikes about this!

The product is an excellent sustainable replacement for peat. It holds moisture well. The compact brick doesn't take much room for storage. I use it as part of my home made potting mix. I wish it was available at my local Home Depot. Many of my gardening friends are using this instead of peat since it is sustainable and peat is a harvested from the environment without replacement.

I purchase several each year. Add half a large bag of horticultural vermiculite, one 11 pound block of COIR, and around 15 gallons of warm to hot water to fill a large wheelbarrow. Enough to pot close to 200 4 inch pots. I pot up several hundred dahlia tubers for myself and the National Capital Dahlia Society every spring. COIR is environmentally friendly, and great for starting tubers, seeds, etc. I add half a teaspoon of time releast fertilizer per pot around the edges and water daily until time to repot in the garden. Home Depot has the best value I can find on the Internet, and free delivery.

This review is for Hydro Crunch 11 lbs. Coco Coir Block of Soilless Growing Media. This is the first time I ever used coco coir block to grow things instead of soil. I was a bit of nervous at the beginning but I am very happy with the end result. It seems to be easier to transport the plants because you won;t get lose soil everywhere. My plants like it so far. It is a keeper.

I really like using coco coir as a growing medium. It is easy to transport, the plants love it, and it seems to have plenty of nutrients to get things started from seed on its own. This particular brand of coco coir is very nice as well, it is consistent and has a good distribution. My only issue with it is that since coco coir expands as you add water to it, and it comes in one giant block, you really need to use all of it at once, but as long as you plan ahead for that it will work out great!

This product is most excellent! I love coco coir for my hydroponics. It holds moisture well and still allows the roots to breathe. It also remains a lot lighter than soil when wet and doesn't pack down as much either. I like using the bricks like this because it stores well taking up little space and you can just break off corners for amounts needed. I highly recommend this brand. It is a great quality product.

I call this eleven-pound block of coco coir soilless growing media a miracle product. After all it does perform miraculously. Place in a large container - and I do mean large - because it expands to at least five times its original size, add a couple of gallons and water, wait thirty minutes or so, and find that it has absorbed all the water and is growing in size. Continue this process until it is easily mixed and worked with your hands, or if you must, use a trowel. It can be used alone or mixed with garden soil and native soil as well. I like to use all of these, plus a small amount of diluted MiracleGro plant food. I have planted in pots for now and hope to replant in the ground this fall after I have prepared the planting area.

This is a 11 pound block of pressed coconut fiber. When soaked with 9 gallons of water it soaks it up and expands into a soft wet growing medium great for rooting plants. It doesn't have much nutritional value and fertilizer needs to be added to larger plants when growing in it. It can be mixed with potting soil, dirt, manure, etc. for a growing medium similar to that made when adding peat moss. It retains water and makes the soil lighter and more porous. Several growers on YouTube have recommend coco coir for starting fig tree cuttings and that is what I am going to use it for in addition to adding it to my flower pot mixtures. A 11 pound block of coco coir is priced at about $16 and is competitive with other soil amendments on the market and I would recommend it particularly for rooting new plants and cuttings.

This product expanded as expected. So far, it does not seem to have a lot of salt content as I do not see any plant yellowing. Expanded, it makes around 18 gallons. This product is convenient because the blocks are much easier to store than the large bales of peat moss. I used as a garden soil amendment mixed in to aerate. This product is also more ideal than other soil-based growing mediums if you are growing indoors. (Coco Coir doesn't contain things like gnat eggs like soil or other mediums would.) You would just mix this product with perlite to grow your plants indoors or to germinate seeds. If this is your sole medium for growing plants, you'll need to use some water soluble fertilizers with this as the product will need all the basic nutrients plus more supplemental calcium and iron. Either organic or synthetic fertilizers are fine, but I would stick to the water soluble versions as there are no soil microbes present to assist in breaking down non-water soluble fertilizer granules. Do not use garden lime because that would cause your PH to be too alkaline. Since this product already has a Ph of about 6.5, you'll need to be careful of what you add to it to keep your PH at the appropriate level.
