This is a fantastic for both coco coir-based hydroponics and as a soil amendment. Lots of options out there. This is one that requires no prewashing and is hard to beat at this price point. When used as an amendment, it provides better drainage and less compaction. I'm currently using mixing it into my raised planters. I'm extremely happy with it so far!

Although primarily used in hydroponics, this can also be used in regular gardening. It absorbs moisture with ease, perfect to use as bedding for a worm farm. Can be blended into homemade potting mixes instead of using peat moss. It is better than peat moss because peat moss is becoming harder to come by whereas coconut coir is made of the fibers from coconuts. It's also good to use in you soil and can be used as a mulch around your existing plants.

I love using this to lighten up the soil in my raised beds. It adds a nice lofty organic substance which really helps hold moisture also. I've used it and hanging baskets as well. I prefer to drop a plastic hanging pot down inside a coconut husk lined hanging basket. I fill the edges and underside between the pot and the liner with this medium to help conserve water. Otherwise they just dry out in the blink of an eye in my arid Arizona climate.

I might replace all my houseplants with coco coir!! My plants love it and its such a great soil replacement medium. A lot of times when I use soil, it retains moisture too well and I end up with a bunch of plants with rotted roots. If i do find it is too airy though, I can mix a little bit of potting soil and it is perfect for them. My current plants are sprouting new leaves as we speak. Super happy The quality of the coco coir is so nice and fine. When I first pot them, I like to add a little water and add more soil because they condense quite a bit. Overall, nothing bad to say about this. And it comes in huge bags!

We recently ordered the 1.5 cu. ft. bag of Coco Coir Buffered Premium Coconut Growing Medium to plant some assorted vegetation in small planters that I made for our balcony. I filled each planter about half full of the Coco Coir product and then added a 2-3-inch layer of potting soil and mixed the two together. I then planted assorted ferns and variegated leaf plants in each of the planters and filled the remaining space with the Coco Coir product. We wanted to try this mixture as we had read about Coir (coconut husk) and its pros for use as a plant medium. The pros are that it increases aeration and retains water. The Coir is touted as being able to retain 10x its own weight in water, which means less frequent watering and better retention of water for plant absorption. The bagged material we received is incredibly clean, light weight and odor free. We had several of our friends tell us that they have great success when using the product for their own growing efforts. I’ve taken a few pics below to give an idea of what the product looks like. We planted our ferns and other assorted plants about 1 week ago and are anxious to see how the plants respond. Based upon information that I have read and word of mouth from friends, I expect that it will work well.

This 50 liter bag of soiless coir potting and seed starting mix is very finely ground. Because of the very fine texture and water holding ability if this mix it is ideal for seed starting and propagating cuttings and growing new seedlings. The looseness of the coir allows the easy growth of new, tender and fine roots. Because this growth medium is soft and loose it lets the fine roots and root hairs grow without any impediments to block their development. It can be combined with perlite to make a looser well draining growth medium.

Used to aerate soil, instead of course sand or vermiculite. An eye pleasing brown mulch that helps keep the water in trees and plants. We use this to lighten and aerate the potting soil for our succulents. It also has the benefit of holding the water so you don’t have to water as frequently. We use a 50/50 mix of coconut coir to potting soil for the succulents. We sometimes use it as mulch on the top 1 inch layer on our potted plants as well. See pics.

Coconut coir is very similar to peat moss in feel and texture, but a much more sustainable product because it comes from coconuts. I read that most garden pests do not enjoy settling in coconut coir, making it yet another line of defense in your integrated pest management system for your garden. Even though this is a large bag, my wife loved how light the product is. We mixed it with potting soil to make the soil lighter and more airy. The product was clean with no foreign matter in the bag. Buffered means that the coir is buffered with calcium nitrate. It is also pH stable and odor free for optimal plant performance. I would recommend this product as a mix for your potting soil or garden soil.

I am anxious to see how this coco coir growing medium works in my container garden pots. This is not a soil - it is a growing medium - naturally sourced from the husks of harvested coconuts It is a fiber that allows for good drainage and prevents water logging of plant roots, reducing the chance for root rot. It does not compact, allowing good aeration. This product is "buffered" which means it has calcium nitrate that aids in the absorption of added fertilizer. From what I understand plants generally will need extra calcium, iron and magnesium added frequently.

It is moist in the bag. We mixed it with Perlite and used it a a planting base for succulents in a hanging planter. It does not clump but a fine "powder" does cling to the hand but that washes off. Because it holds water frequent watering is not needed. It feels similar to the planting material I've found around commercial avocado plants. Plan to use that with regular soil when I next try to grow an avocado since you have to mix the stuff the plant comes in with the regular soil so the roots grow out.

We like coco coir for more than one reason: it's a renewable alternative to peat moss (which isn't renewable); it retains moisture better than peat moss; it's touted as sterile whereas peat might have organisms in it (bad for seed starting). We used compressed coco coir earlier this year, and it's the best seed starting mix! However, you need a band saw to cut compressed blocks into useable pieces (it expands 10 times in water). The Viagrow growing medium coco coir is NOT compressed, nice and loose, super easy to use. The two bags we got should really help our garden beds to both improve soil porosity and as a water-retaining medium. Again, this growing medium does NOT expand. Add 1/2 C of water to 1/2 C Viagrow, and you get a cup of a pretty sloppy mix. I needed to repot an Aloe plant and used the Viagrow coco coir. The Aloe seems to be pretty happy with it!

Your plants will love it
I live in AZ where heat gets to plants quickly. I have several potted plants that I have to keep hydrated year round. I saw this new Viagrow product and thought it might be perfect medium to help keep plants more moist than normal soil. I also think it will be a great starter media; I frequently take cuttings of some of my succulents to start others. I happen to have some elephant plants I just started in water and some fertilizer. After a week there was only one root started. So I replaced the water with about 1/2 cup of buffered Coconut Coir growing media and almost a cup of water. The Coir absorbed about twice it's volume of water. It has almost no smell, I was expecting some coconut, but not really any smell. Well after another week I can see loads of root action, during the week I added another 1/2 cup of water. But the amount of new growth is much more than I expected, much more and faster than I've ever gotten from any media. I'm very pleased with the product give it a try you'll be happy you did.

    Adding this coconut coir to my 25+ patio pots has made an amazing difference - less frequent watering is necessary and the plants aren’t drying out every afternoon. I grow tons of herbs, flowers, tomatoes, etc. Living in zone 7B, once the heat of summer hit, all my delicate herbs started drooping, and even with daily watering, the water was running straight through the pot. After doing some research, I decided to top the pots with coconut coir in an effort to help prevent the evaporation with a soil topper. I also gently mixed some coir into the sides of the pots of the established plants to help absorb water without disturbing the roots too much. This was an awesome improvement, and really easy to do! I also had a couple summer annuals to plant and mixed this in to the potting soil when potting vs topping it for them. Both ways of adding the coconut coir seem to have worked great! After I added the coir and watered, the water did not drain straight through and actually stayed absorbed in the pot. Even better, next day, even my super delicate basil was still looking perky in the afternoon - I’ve now gone 3 days without needing to water - huge time saver and also great to save water! Overall, I was really impressed with this product - it was ready to use right out of the bag (some coir has to be hydrated first), and the bag is lighter weight than soil, so easy to bring up to the deck and move it around to all my plants. I also really appreciated that it is a renewable resource - I quite using peat a few years ago due to a personal preference for using sustainable and organic resources as much as possible, however, I realized I did need to be using something to help with water retention, and this coir fits that need perfectly!

    This is beautiful soil. I opened the bag and it's fluffy and ready to plant. No musty odor or dirt smell to this either. All natural. Compared to other brands of soil, this looks like it'd be perfect for indoor plants due to no bugs or other unwanted things. It's soft to the touch and seems to keep moisture a bit better than regular dirt. It recommends to water when starting to dry out but before it is actually dry. Water as you would with any other soil. This soil is buffered, which helps with and aids the uptake and utilization of plant nutrients. My indoor plants are all getting repotted and this will be the soil used.

    1.5 cu. ft. Coco Coir Buffered Premium Coconut Growing Medium 50L./52.8 qt./13.2 G. (2-pack). Dry, this is a very light mixture in a tight 1.5 cu foot bag. Upon Opening the bag, it is obvious that this is from ground up coconut husks and other coconut waist from the tree. It is nice to see that this material is being put to good use rather than used as land fill. I had never heard the term “buffered” and I was curious what this meant for the soil. The soil is infused with calcium nitrate to help feed plants with high fertilizer requirements. The soil is ready to use as is or it can be mixed with all your favorite potting soils or water management resources like perlite. The product shipped with two 1.5 cu foot bags.

    The bag is large, yet light weight. Dried and fluffed ready to be used. This can be mixed in with other amendments such as vermiculite and / or perlite and / or compost. What I like about this is form factor is that it is ready to use and it is all natural renewable resource, might even be an old waste or by product of using coconuts for other purposes. This is triple washed and balanced so there is no contamination and can be used on food type plants without concern for chemical issues like other types of soil amendments.

    As a novice gardener I'm always looking for what will work best for my needs. That's why I tried this product. I start my seeds indoors and need a product that will retain moisture but also drain well. This coconut growing media works well for this task and can be mixed with soil, vermiculite, peat, or perlite when repotting or moving outdoors whether in ground or raised containers.

    I got the Viagrow coco growing medium couple of days ago and started using it yesterday. As it is suggested on the instructions on the back of the bag it can be used alone or with other mediums, such as peat moss and vermiculite to enhance growth and productivity. The coco coir is different from potting soil and is very light and fluffy. I mixed it with some potting soil, peat moss and perlite.
