by Matt Gibson and Erin Marissa Russell Coconut Coir, the widely-used hydroponic growing medium, is in recent years rising in popularity as a soil conditioner, in many cases replacing the use of peat moss, as both are very similar products. So, the question is, which one is the best for modern gardeners? This argument usually […]
Coir is the fibrous husk of the coconut shell. Being tough and naturally resistant to seawater, the coir protects the fruit enough to survive months floating on ocean currents to be washed up on a sandy shore where it may sprout and grow into a tree, if it has enough fresh water, because all the other nutrients it needs have been carried along with the seed.

Coconut husks, a waste product from the copra and coconut oil production, are found there abundantly. An innovative method to produce Ecocoboard was developed, which is a new, high quality building board material from the fibrous husk without addition of chemical adhesives.
According to me coconut coir is a misnomer for coconut peat. I have developed a process to get coco peat from husk. Here we get two products; ie fibre and peat. I am using fibre at the bottom of the pot for drainage, as our soil here is clay type. The peat is mixed with soil and manure from vermiculture to make a potting mixture.
