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.

This review will be helpful for both beginner and expert coir users alike. I am a hydroponic farmer so I use a lot of coir, normally organic from the best company out there. My local store went out of business so I was looking for a quick fix till I can find a new supplier. As another reviewer stated "this does not expand". What does he mean? Normally "quality coir" is fine grained - it hydrates easily and a 11 pound block will fill 3-5gal buckets when hydrated.

My experience with this product is as follows. It doesn't hydrate so doesn't expand. It appears to be nothing but coarse coconut pith. It sat in hot water for two days and did nothing. I had to take a hammer to it to get it broken up in large chunks. Put it back in the water for another day. Nothing happened. I am into day three and have managed, laboriously I might add, to get it broken into palm sized chunks. If I wasn't in such dire need of this product at the moment, I, like another reviewer, would relegate it to the garbage pile. This is not easily broken down even when the chunks are fairly small and because of the nature of this particular coir, you are going to have to make sure it is absolutely fine grain in nature or it is not going to absorb water. I would say one package might fill a 5 gal bucket. It wasn't till this morning that I realized that 11 pounds of coconut pith is going to result in less end-use product because it doesn't expand, what you see is what you get - so you are going to get a lot less in this package than in a package of quality coir.

This product may have some use - for it appears it may hold water fairly well once it has been reduced to a fine texture, so for hydroponics it may require less cycles to keep it wet. But ask yourself, how much time do you want to invest? I can open that name brand coir, hydrate it in 30 minutes and have it into containers all in less than an hour. So ask yourself, is a week of your time only worth $10?
