Additional Information

Exclusive | Earth-Friendly Coco Coir for Composting, Planting and More!

  • Carbon-rich coir balances nitrogen-rich kitchen scraps in the compost pile
  • Hydrate these coir bricks for an effective and economical container mix
  • May be added to garden beds to loosen clay soil
  • Pack of 12 bricks

Derived from coconut husks, carbon-rich Eco-co® Coir is handy for layering with nitrogen-rich kitchen scraps and lawn clippings in the compost pile, and it makes a good bedding material for worm composters. Our exclusive Eco-co® Coir is also an earth-friendly planting mix for use in pots, planters and window boxes, or as a peat-free alternative when you make your own planting mixes. Unlike other coirs, our Eco-co Coir undergoes a special process to remove salts and to balance the pH for optimal plant growth. Eco-co Coir has excellent water-holding capacity yet drains well — so important for healthy root growth. Our blend is a mix of fine and coarse grinds to provide the perfect environment for plant roots. Simply add water and each convenient compressed brick expands to 10 quarts of fluffy mix.

Not as described--won't buy again

Comments about : Eco-co® Coir Bricks, Pack of 12:

I was really excited for this product. I like to put a layer of weed block paper over my garden bed to keep weeds down. I thought the Ecco coir would be great to layer on top of the paper. The description says that each block expands to fill 10 quarts. Unfortunately, the blocks I've tried--following the directions--only fill about 4 quarts at best. (And taking the time to soak the blocks in warm water before using isn't the easiest.) I feel like I wasted my money. Just not worthwhile for such little product. If it actually created the amount described, I would have been happy.

      A little goes a long way. I used one brick to start my worm form, but should have used a half.

      I love the ease of adding these compressed coir bricks to a bucket of water instead of trying to deal with large heavy bags. They soak up the water and expand very quickly, in fact my kids enjoy watching them grow. I use this coir to mix with the soil in my containers mainly for vegetable gardening and it works well for that. It seems to allow the water to penetrate more rapidly and not sit on the top of the soil, and it also seems to retain moisture well. My only complaint is that they don't expand as much as I thought they would so I have to use about twice as many as I initially expected.

          Growing up as a little girl in the island, my mom and uncle always saved the coconut husk and had a pile constantly. Did not know why they would do this. Now I know. It is a fabulous product.

          Used both completely by itself (for self-watering container growing) or mixed with compost and/or garden soil (for conventional potted growing).

            Comments about : Eco-co® Coir Bricks, Pack of 12:

            Have purchased this product for at least the last three years. Mix it with my soils and use in my worm bin. As I said above...iI store it in my plant room until ready to use. Does not take up the space bags of soil and amendments do. Do not need assistance using it. Meaning as a senior citizen, I usually need my son to bring my bagged products (soil, compost, manure etc) to my garden. Helps keep my soil loose and is organic.

                These bricks hydrated just like the directions said. Result was a light easy soil that I can tell my plants will love. Very easy to work with and the compact bricks are light and easy to stack and store.

                It's a great way to start seeds. Good texture, easy to use, more sustainable than peat-based options.

                  I like the size of the bricks, because I can hydrate one and add it to my tumbling composter for some "brown material" It saves me hauling mulch from the nursery.
