I am working on a project called the Free Tree Project, where I raise trees to give away to people - with all the deforestation and general havoc that humans are wreaking on this planet, I love to see all the people who have been interested in planting trees. Unfortunately it's expensive to pot so many little trees, but I did read about making your own potting soil and figured I'd give it a try. Not only is coconut coir a great substitute for peat moss, it's better for the environment. Peat moss, which is often used as a main ingredient in commercial potting soil, is not a sustainable resource. Coconut coir, however, is very environmentally friendly - it is simply a byproduct of the coconut industry. My DIY potting soil consists of 2 parts coconut coir, 1 part finished(sifted) compost, and 1 part perlite. So far my plants seem happy with it!
I liked this block of coconut coir even better than the ones I got from a local pet store. Absorbs water quickly, and expands like crazy! For only about $17, it's a fantastic deal. I'm making my own potting soil, which is just as good as the commercial stuff, for a fraction of the cost. I'm glad I discovered this!
I bought 3 of these on this order, and ALL of them weigh 10 pound each, EXACTLY 10 pounds each.
I cannot see how it is advertised as 11 pounbd blocks when they are underweight. It's a bit nit-picky, but in total order, I was 3 pounds underweight. That may not seem like much, but when you realize that 250g = 1 gallon plant pot after coco is expanded, this means I am short 12 gallons of expanded coco coir. I grow in 3 gallon pots, so 4 pots are empty. :(
Amazon fulfilled the order, so they should realize they are short changing customers on this item.
In our factory in India we consume a lot of coco fiber, these fibers are braided from the husk of the coco nut . A part of these fibers that we cannot weave into mats we use to make our garden products
Kempf makes this out of left over coconut fibers from making door mats (which they have been doing for over 100 years with Indian coconut fiber)
