Mana Earth Coco Coir Perlite is a plant growing media that is pH stabilised, pest and disease free, with low salt index. A perfect starting grow medium or an alternative to potting soil and soil amendment.
Excellent Water holding capacity
Helps maintain consistent soil moisture levels, ensuring plants have access to water even during summer dry season. It also reduces the risk of overwatering and root rot
Coco coir has a fibrous structure that provides excellent air circulation within the growing medium. Mixed with perlite, this promotes oxygen availability to plant roots, supporting healthy root development and preventing root suffocation. Adequate aeration is essential for nutrient uptake and overall plant growth
pH Stability and Neutralizing Properties
Coco coir Perlite has a natural pH range of 6.8 to 7.2, which is slightly acidic to neutral. This pH range is suitable for a wide variety of plants and can help buffer and stabilize the pH of acidic or alkaline soils. It acts as a natural pH adjuster, reducing the need for additional amendments
Nutrient Retention and Release
Coco coir Perlite has the ability to retain and release nutrients effectively. It has a high cation exchange capacity (CEC), which means it can hold and exchange essential plant nutrients. This property allows for better nutrient absorption by plant roots and reduces the risk of nutrient leaching
Disease and Pest Resistance
Coco coir perlite has natural resistance to fungi, bacteria, and pests, making it less prone to mould, rot, and soil-borne diseases compared to traditional potting mixes. This can contribute to healthier plants, reducing the need for chemical pesticides or fungicides
Sustainable and Renewable
Coco coir is a sustainable and renewable resource. It is an environmentally friendly alternative to peat moss. Choosing coco coir helps conserve natural resources and supports sustainable gardening practices
Longevity and Reusability
Coco coir Perlite has a long lifespan and can be reused in multiple growing cycles. After its initial use, it can be incorporated into compost or garden beds to improve soil structure and moisture retention. This reduces waste and promotes a circular and sustainable gardening approach
