Good deal and good quality coir.

I just took a butter knife to pry each of the four "wafers" apart, which separated very easy, then put them all in a 30 gallon garbage can.

It regulates moisture, I have had no problem with damping off, and needs fewer waterings than some potting soils I have used.

Comes in 4 separate compressed bricks about 1" thick. Put one brick in a 5 Gal. pail, soaked in water enough for it to break apart. The brick expanded to fill 2/3 of the 5 Gal. pail.

Never used coconut coir before, but is used to aerate the soil so the roots can breathe better, move more freely in the soil, and helps to retain moisture.

Regular soil compacts after repeated watering, slowing root growth, and may suffocate the plant. Roots need some aeration to grow and expand, so adding this to the soil should help with root growth, aeration, moisture retention and a healthier plant.

Unlike the other review, this product shipped free this time. Paying $14 or so for shipping would make buying the product online senseless or defeat the purpose.

I encountered this product last year at a major garden center and found it has many uses. This year I could not find it anywhere - until I found it here on Amazon. It is fantastic as a seed starter medium especially in an open flat when the goal is lifting plants at first or second true leaves. The plants will lift cleanly, roots seldom tear as this medium makes no mat until roots fill the soil area entirely. It also worked in cells when the goal is to allow roots to fill the cell and lift cleanly. It regulates moisture, I have had no problem with damping off, and needs fewer waterings than some potting soils I have used. For cells I found mixing with good potting soil works best. It is simply a great product! It was delivered to my door, and with prime I paid no shipping. It beat peat moss in every category I can think of, and is renewable!

this is the only coconut coir product that i am happy with after trying several. i am using it in my home container garden setup and it works great. i put the block into my giant tub and fill it up with water. it sets overnight and after that amount of time it is all ready to use the next morning. it was all soft and broken up and ready to use after setting all night. i tried to hurry it up one day and it did not work that way. i had to wait and be patient for it to break up. but this one is really my favorite. i have bought several of this brand name block so far and the price is right also. thank you!

update: you can fill your tub up at least half way with water. put the block of coir into the water slowly so it does not splash out water. slowly turn the block over and over a few times and let it get wet with the water. in a very short time the blocks will be ready to pull them apart and to speed up the process of getting them soaked. you will be able to see the dividing lines in the blocks. you might be able to gently pull the blocks apart now or slide a dull butter knife in between the layers. it should come apart easily. now turn the blocks around in the water and get them wet on the outside. within a couple hours you should be able to "help it out" by pulling off soft pieces and pushing it into the water. i use this method a lot to speed up the process. you have to work with it to help speed it up but thats how i do it when i am in a hurry. i am having good luck with this product and i have bought quite a lot of it lately. after you get the hang of it there will be no problem. there is no bad smell and it seems to be a nice clean product to work with.

update: i have come across two blocks that were hard as a rock and would not soak up water or loosen up.

I ordered 2 of this 11 pound block of coir and 1 of another offered through amazon to sort of compare the two to determine which would be better quality. This Planters Pride product has mostly good reviews and the bad reviews were not for good reasons IMHO this is a great product. I mean honestly rating 1 star for not taking care of your own plants the correct way is just childish! Back to the review = Not only is the coir great the weight is vary consistent both blocks were exactly 11.2 pounds. The other company I ordered from had many reviews saying they did not receive the right weight which in turn means they did not get the 17 gallons of coco. Even though 2 units isn't a large sample size I feel confident enough in this product to make several more purchases throughout the year as long as amazon prime continues to pay for shipping.

This is my 2nd year of using this product. I'm very impressed. All my vegetables are thriving this spring and the coconut coir is a big part of it. I also like using a product that is friendly to the environment, unlike peat moss. I will be using Beats Peat regularly.

Just tried this product purchased at a local nursery for $18. Each of the 4 bricks in the package expand to fill a 5 gallon bucket about 2/3 full of a fine peat-like mulch. I'm using it to amend the soil in huge raised beds instead of peat moss.

This vendor's price of $11 is a great deal but the $14.50 they're charging for shipping is bringing well over the price I can get it for at a local high-end nursery. It is a heavy item, but $14.50. Really?

I was pleasantly surprised with this coconut coir product. I do red wiggler vermicomposting, and bought many coconut coir bricks in bulk in the past for the worms' bedding. Most of those products expanded in water quicker, but they contained larger wooden/coco chunks. This brand took a long time to expand in water (which I impatiently had to help break apart manually), but it left me with much finer coco fibers without noticeable wood/chip chunks. My worms can't process larger media chunks, so I value this product for the finer consistency that's better for amending soil without having to sieve out the remnants. On a negative note, the product notes that it contains 4 blocks so you don't need to use it all at once, but the 4 brick seams only became visible and separable once the entire brick got immersed in water. The price seems to fluctuate a lot but now that it's back to below twelve dollars, I've finally ordered a few more. I have no idea why these renewable coco products tend to run high in price so often, but it only makes sense for me to buy when the price is reasonable.
