About Coconut Coir:
Coconut coir growing medium comes from the coconut's fibrous husk (known as coir) that is bound together by lignin (known as pith). With the addition of water, coir expands to an easy to work with growing medium. The addition of water increases the volume up to 3 to 9 times, depending on the packaging of products. This process results in a 100% biodegradable growing medium, making it a natural and safe growth medium of choice for growers
About Seed Starter Bags:
The grow bags are made of non-woven fabric, eco friendly plant fiber.
No need to remove the bag when transplanting, improving the plants survival rate
Directions: Use an ample sized soaking container to re-hydrate your compressed brick. Soak your compressed coir brick for a minimum of fifteen minutes before attempting to use the product.
Start with 3 liters of water per brick. If your brick is not fully hydrated then add more water.
Once your coconut coir is fully hydrated, add the coir to the non-woven starter bags provided. Make sure to pack each pod gently but firmly. Plant seeds accordingly in each pod.
Keep moist but not in standing water.
Before we were thrown into this deep freeze I decided to get some bags filled. I put my block of coconut coir into a 2 gallon bucket and added water. I slipped one of the seed bags onto a canning funnel and with a small kitchen thongs went to filling each bag. Wound up with almost 50 bags filled before I ran out of the trays I'm using to hold them. Now for the weather to agree with me on starting seeds in them. I am very pleased with this product.
