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.

Comments about : Eco-co® Coir Bricks, Pack of 12:
I've used this product many times over the past few years. I generally buy enough to last a couple of seasons as a soil conditioner for my veggie and flower gardens as well as patio pots. I just love how it lightens the soil and helps hold in moisture.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Easy to use, can't go wrong!
By Lisa the gardener
from West Wyoming, PA
These bricks were easy to handle, open, and toss into my wheelbarrow in order to re-hydrate and use. I did 5-6 at a time and walked away and worked in the garden while they were absorbing the water I put in for them. I came back and checked on them and used my hand trowel to dig through the already hydrated coir to loosen them up. They re-hydrate quickly! Once they were all ready, I wheeled over to where I wanted to use them, and I shoveled this onto freshly weeded garden beds that needed a compost top dressing that are going to be mulched soon for the winter. This is what I'm using this product for- it may not be what everyone else is using it for but it makes sense to me!
I would buy this again

Didn't think I would be using all of these bricks, but now having used only 2, I know I will. My worms LOVE this stuff. So do my hanging plants. Holds water and moisture, reducing watering. No bad smell.
I would buy this product again and again hands down

I garden in grow bags and mix this with the soil I get in bags. I like that it is easy to store. Rehydrates just fine.
Beauty and Practicality

Not only does this help keep water down in the soil but it also looks beautiful on the surface. It has helped keep down weeds (not eliminated). Great product!
