Coco Peat consists of processed coconut fibers and is a byproduct of the coconut industry which, without its usefulness to gardeners, would otherwise be disposed of. As a growing medium similar to sphagnum peat, coco peat, also called coir or coir dust, provides an alternative to potting soil featuring high water retention, suitable aeration and antifungal benefits.
Perlite may be the most commonly used growing medium in the world. This excellent product is used by hydroponic as well as organic gardeners. It has excellent “wicking” action yet doesn’t absorb water giving the plants roots plenty of oxygen. Commonly used in a mixture with vermiculite or Coco Peat.
Perlite, made from processed granules of volcanic rock, has excellent capillary properties and doesn’t compact, which allows for good aeration.
Used in pot culture or with drippers, it is one of the best hydroponic growing mediums around.
