What is Coco Coir Pith and Fibers?

Coco coir, also known as coconut coir, is a natural fiber extracted from the husk of coconuts. It is commonly used as a growing medium for plants, as it is a renewable and sustainable alternative to peat moss.

Coco coir pith, also known as coco peat or coir dust, is a byproduct of the coconut industry. It is the powdery substance that remains after the long fibers have been removed from the coconut husk. Coco coir pith is a great growing medium for plants, as it is high in lignin and cellulose, which help to retain water and nutrients.

Coco coir fibers, on the other hand, are the long and coarse strands that make up the husk of the coconut. These fibers are used in the manufacturing of various products such as ropes, mats, brushes, and mattresses. They are also used as a growing medium for plants, especially in hydroponic systems. Coco coir fibers have excellent water-holding capacity, making them an ideal choice for plants that require a lot of moisture.
