What are Coir Pots ( Part 2)

Permeability

Coconut fiber plant pots allow air, water, and even roots to permeate their shells. The coir holds water well, keeping your plants moist as they’re starting to emerge. However, the coir does not retain an excessive amount of moisture, so you don’t have to worry about drowning your plants. The coir makes aeration easy, allowing air through its permeable surface.

The roots of the plant can make their way through the coir pot easily as well. As the air and water are diffused through the pot’s material, the roots will begin to work their way through the pot. This creates an excellent environment for new plants because the roots can breathe, easily access water, and expand unfettered.

Biodegradability

Coco coir pots are completely biodegradable. They’re made exclusively from natural materials and will return easily to the earth once they break down. This means that you can quickly and easily drop these pots into the ground when you’re ready to transplant your plants to an outdoor garden or larger pots. This minimizes the trauma to the plant, allowing it to keep its root system intact.

Repotting or transplanting from pots that are not biodegradable can cause serious shock to your plants. You won’t have to worry about tangled roots or stunted growth when you’re working with pots made from coco coir.

Sustainability

Coco coir is a very sustainable material. A single coconut tree can produce 150 coconuts in a year. Coconut trees usually produce their first fruit when they’re 5 or 6 years old and reach maximum production after 15 to 20 years. The tree can live for 60 to 80 years in total. This makes it easy to produce numerous coir products without harming the environment. In fact, coconut trees even benefit the environment by reducing carbon dioxide emissions.

Nearly every part of the coconut tree is useful in some way, from the edible flesh and the nourishing oil to the medicinal flowers. This is an excellent tree to promote.

Nourishment

Coco coir has a neutral pH value that’s typically between 5.2 and 6.8. This makes it a versatile choice for plants of nearly any variety. The coir is also rich in nutrients like iron, potassium, copper, and zinc. Coir’s high cation exchange rate allows it to readily supply these nutrients to plants that it comes into contact with.

How to Use Coconut Fiber Pots in Gardening

Using your coconut fiber plant pots is easy and takes just a few basic steps:

  1. Place the pots in a tray where excess water can seep out.
  2. Add soil to the coir pots. Keep in mind that the pot itself has a neutral pH, so you will need to adjust the soil accordingly if your plants want an acidic or alkaline environment. Coco coir also tends to retain magnesium and calcium, so you may have to add more of these than usual, depending on your particular plant’s needs.
  3. Sow your seeds in the soil.
  4. Water the coir pots.
  5. Cover the tray to retain the moisture and create a humid environment for your plants to start growing.
  6. When your plants have sprouted and are prepared for the garden, place the coco coir pots directly in the ground. Alternately, you can place your coir pots inside other planters. Coconut coir is especially beneficial inside terra cotta. The coir helps retain moisture and counteract terra cotta’s tendency to leach it away.

If you’re interested in an eco-friendly way to approach your gardening, coconut husk planting pots are a great place to start. The nutrient-rich coir will help feed your plants generously while giving them the air and water they need to thrive. You may soon see enhanced results that are far beyond what you’ve experienced with other types of starter pots. When you’re ready to revitalize your garden, give coco coir pots a try.
