Mother Earth® Coco substrate contains the highest quality mix of coco pith and coco fiber. Coco is one of nature's finest growing mediums produced from a renewable resource, coconut husk, which does not contain a smell and is uniform in composition. Unlike other media, coco will not shrink or crack, yet it maintains the nature of a traditional soil, while allowing the grower to feed and water more frequently. Coco has unique properties such as a high cation exchange and lignin content, which aid in healthy beneficial bacteria, mycorrhizae and trichoderma populations. Coco also has a perfect balance of air to water ratio which will allow for level drainage and oxygenation of the plant's root structures which optimizes nutrient and water absorption by the plant.
Mother Earth® Coco is RHP certified and free from chemical additives, viruses and diseases. Mother Earth® Coco is buffered using a unique process of rinsing with calcium before bagging to provide minimal sodium content, balancing the naturally occurring potassium and ultimately aiding in the prevention of nutrient lockout. pH adjusted to a neutral 6.3-6.8, Mother Earth® Coco will promote strong root growth, populate microbial activity, discourage disease and insect outbreak, and will release nutrients evenly so that overall plant health and fruit production can be maximized.
Mother Earth® Coco is great as a standalone growing substrate, or you can mix with other medias such as potting soil, planting mix, or rockwool to enhance the growing environment. For an optimal hydroponic media, combine Mother Earth® Coco with Mother Earth® Hydroton for increased production.
Directions for use:
Container or outdoor gardening:
Plant directly in Mother Earth Coco. Water Daily.
Amending or mixing:
Mix Mother Earth Coco with yout natural or bagged soil at 50/50 ratio. Blend and water thoroughly at first planting. Follow usual watering schedule for in-ground plantings.
Automatic Systems and indoor gardening:
Water 1-6 times per day depending on method, container size and plant type.
With any planting, please follow your preffered nutrient program. With in-ground plantings it is best to feed with a dry fertilizer along with your liquid program of choice. For container growing always choose the proper size container for your application and plant type. If in question, always use a larger container versus an undersized one as it will provide a better enviroment for your plants to thrive in. Do not over-water your plants and make sure they are able to freely drain excess water. Using a layer of hydroton expanded clay pebbles in the bottom of your container will help facilitate good drainage.
