Canna Coco Coir Professional Plus is an organic substrate that can be used in combination with nutrients containing organic minerals specifically formulated for use with coco coir. Coco coir is a natural fibre from the husks of coconuts that is particularly suitable for plant growing. Coconut fibres hold a lot of air and little water. The pH falls between neutral 5-6, which means little or no adjustment is necessary when growing in coco. Be sure to use coco-specific nutrients when growing in coco coir, such as Canna Coco or Hesi Coco Bloom.
