Our exclusive coir seed starting mix is an effective, economical and earth-friendly medium for starting seeds. Derived from recycled coconut husks, Eco-co Coir passed our extensive seed-starting trials with flying colors, providing excellent germination rates and producing healthy, sturdy seedlings. Unlike other coir products, our Eco-co Coir undergoes a special process to remove salts and to balance the pH for optimal plant growth. Then it's finely ground to provide the perfect environment for seedling roots. Eco-co Coir has excellent water-holding capacity yet drains well — so important for healthy root growth. Simply add water and each convenient compressed brick expands to 10 quarts of fluffy planting mix.

Works Well and Saves Space

My sister and I have been using coir blocks for several years. They take up so much less space and don't take long to re-hydrate after adding water.

Most convenient way to start seeds
from New York
I start over 100 trays of seeds every year. These coir bricks are lightweight, easy to store, very compact and easy to move. SO much better than bagged started medium. No sticks, debris, clumps, etc. Hydrates quickly into a fluffy, light, moisture retentive mix. I love Gardeners Supply (and the phone people are just fantastic), but they're not cheap.

I mixed it with my seed starting mix and also with my regular potting mix. It reconstitutes easily . Just add water wait about 10 minutes and it's ready.
It's good stuff
from Keeseville, N.Y?
It's easy to store,works great& it's easy to use! Most of the seeds I started grew in this & some of the seeds were a few yrs. out of date! It does take a few minutes for it to soak up the water & expand ,so that you can use it ! But as it doesn't take up much space it's worth the wait!! I really like that it's a brick instead of a bag,that can spill & isn't easy to store!
