Soil improvement can be difficult if nutrients and pH are wrong, and full hydroponics can be a bit daunting for beginners. Coir provides a unique blend of nutrient retention, rapid drying and airflow that soil and hydroponic pebbles find difficult to do efficiently. Coir provides a unique blend of nutrient retention, rapid drying and airflow that soil and hydroponic pebbles find difficult to do efficiently. Due to the coarseness of the coconut fibers, it offers air pockets and is therefore an excellent source of oxygen.
It thrives in all conditions, benefits your flowers and plants, and is suitable for both normal and hydroponic gardening.
Does coconut fiber affect pH?
This means that you need to use special coconut nutrients to increase Ca, Mg, and Fe levels for healthy plants. The coconut palm, referred to in some cultures as “The all-giving tree,” has been cultivated for thousands of years. Using coconut fiber as a medium also means knowing what pH is ideal for coconut, and keeping in mind what is being grown. Coconut is the fiber material that sits between the hard, inner shell and outer shell of the coconut.
