Product Overview

  • Just add water; material expands to 5x packaged size
  • Designed to increase nutrient retention and natural aeration
  • 100% natural coir material that has been flushed of excess sodium
Coconut coir bricks are composed of three different types of compressed coconut coir. This high quality, low sodium growing medium is an environmentally friendly alternative to sphagnum peat moss. When hydrated with water, bricks and blocks rapidly expand which saves you time and effort. They can be exclusively used by themselves, blended together or mixed with expanded clay pellets, perlite or topsoil. The brick will break down on its own in three years. Better still, you can run it through a chipper and amend your soil with it. Incredibly strong, it makes a better candidate for use with enzyme products that convert roots to biomass.
  • Each brick makes up to 18 Gal. of ready-to-use soilless media
  • Optimum air to water ratio
  • Increases nutrient retention and provides essential aeration
  • Expands to 5 times its packaged size
  • Great for outdoor gardening
  • 100% organic coir fiber
  • Flushed of excess sodium

Can this be stored after opening? Asking because I might not need to use the entire brick.
Asked by: matt
Absolutely. I have had some of mine stored for almost a year and it had only absorbed a small amount of moisture from the air. I would suggest storing in a sealed container or a plastic bag, to keep out bugs. You may also want to look for multi packs of smaller bricks for easier storage.

how do people use this as a seed starter? i will be planting chilli pepper seeds

Asked by: Robert
Let it soak until it is fully saturated and it will make an excellent seed starter, but so does a wet paper towel. This works by providing moisture without drowning the seed. Or, mix it 50/50 with some soil and then you can grow your seedlings until they are ready to transplant outside. It prevents the soil from compacting and provides moisture.

Is there a simple ratio for calculating coir weight to water volume for hydration? (I do not want to overhydrate much at all if possible.) Grams of Coir to Quarts of Water?
Asked by: talon
I'm typically at saturation with 1kg coir to 3 liters of water. after pasteurization and settling it's just under the leaking point. you can add vermiculite to tighten it up if necessary.

Viagrow 11 lb. Coconut Coir Block of Soilless Media is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 154.

I bought this item a few months ago because of the good reviews, good price and local availability. I used it in 1/2 of the 20ft dirt strip in my backyard that I use as a "garden". Today when I went to plant some tomato and squash plants I found many "worms"; they are gray/white and look like what I know as cutworms in grass. I found none in the area that did not have the item used in it. I removed all that I found but there are probably many more. I do not know if they will cause problems with my plants or if they might be an invasive species from were the coir came from. If you do use the item I would recommend that you check your soil after a short period of time after you add this to your soil.

It’s so much more reasonable a price than from the vermiculture sites. It makes up a good volume, so I also used some for a small raised fall vegetable bed. I have a 10 gallon bucket full left.

Personally, I do not need individually wrapped units but I imagine some folks will like this. Good product with quick delivery. I will buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice product This is a nice growing medium. I really didn't know what to expect when I ordered this product but i wanted something to add to my potting soil that would absorb moisture and hold it in the potting container longer than just plain potting soil. It came as a large square brick. I opened it up in a large plastic container and poured water on it, so that I could break it up. It absorbed the water really well as I added water slowly over the couse of around an hour or so. It is easy to separate when wet, but not when dry. A great benefit is that it has no odor and blended great with my potting soil. I am planting a bunch of small plants and starting some seeds indoors in this mixture and it's working great. So far I highly recommend this product as an addition to your potting soil. I forgot I had it for about 9 months before I used it, and it doesn't break down over time!
