Coco Mix contains Coco coir, a waste product of the coconut industry, which has proven to be an ideal medium in which to grow plants. To allow coco fibre to become useable, the organic matter must first decompose over a period of time so that the strong fibres are softened. The material is then washed and shredded to become the familiar substrate we all know.
Coconut fibre contains plenty of air and little water; the pH may decrease to 5 or 6.
The Coco Mix of Biobizz has been washed with clear water after the coconut fibres have been broken up in a natural way.
Coco Mix can be used in all hydroponic crops to replace rock wool.
Growing in pots on a coco-based substrate is a popular cultivation method. Growers who wish to become more organic can use Coco Mix in combination with their usual A+B range.
