Coco coir is an organic plant substrate derived from fibrous coconut husks, and is the preferred growing media for hydroponic systems.
Professor’s Pure Blend coco is RHP certified, ensuring it remains pure and clean throughout the production process and achieves a consistently high quality. Professor’s Coco is lightly washed and buffered (without using any chemical treatments), providing a fantastic environment for root growth. It's excellent drainage and aeration, along with it's consistent pH level, provides the optimal growing medium. Coco coir has the benefit of being easy to hydrate and 100% natural.
Perlite is a common addition to Coco Coir, being highly favoured for its excellent drainage capabilities while simultaneously maintaining high moisture levels and alleviating the risks of over-watering. The main advantage of a perlite blend is its ability to keep the grow medium aerated. Plants need oxygen to thrive and survive, and perlite particles create tiny air tunnels which allow moisture and oxygen to flow freely to plant roots.
Professor’s Nutrients Coco-Perlite Blend is a mix consisting of 70% Coco Coir and 30% Perlite.
Professor’s Nutrients Coco Chips blend is a mix consisting of 50% Coco Coir and 50% Coco Chips.
Coco chips are small chunks of Coco Coir that combine the best properties of coco peat and fibre. They have a large surface area and retain moisture and nutrients like a sponge, yet do not compact tightly, allowing for large volumes of air between them and a higher level of aeration. Less compaction allows roots to grow more freely and promotes excellent drainage.
Hy-Gen coco peat is a 100% natural coir hydroponics growing medium. It is pH stabilised to maintain steady pH conditions around the root zone. Calcium and Magnesium are used to buffer the coco peat to assist in conditioning and to eliminate nuisance chemicals such as sodium
