Coir / Coconut Fiber

Fine Grade Organic Coconut Fiber

Coconut Fiber Fine
An all-natural, organic, recyclable, sustainable substrate that you can feel good about using. Coir is a great growing media choice for it's quick water absorption, near-neutral pH (5.5-6.8), rich natural potassium level, and it's higher level of micronutrients in comparison to peat. We suggest mixing coir with other aggregates to allow for extra drainage capability in the soil, since coir alone is capable of holding a fair amount of water.
 
Available Styles:
 

Medium Grade Coir / Coconut Fiber

Coconut fiber with more texture & longer fibers

Medium Grade Coconut Fiber
An all-natural, organic, recyclable, sustainable substrate that you can feel good about using. This type of coir includes parts of the husk, and is a medium-grade mix, with more texture than the standard coir we offer. This medium grade coir holds humidity a little longer, and is a great growing media choice for it's quick water absorption, near-neutral pH (5.5-6.8), rich natural potassium level, and it's higher level of micronutrients in comparison to peat. We suggest mixing coir with other aggregates to allow for extra drainage capability in the soil, since coir alone is capable of holding a fair amount of water. This medium grade stuff makes for a great looking custom background when mixed about 50/50 with our standard grade coir substrate.
 
 

Cypress Mulch

Cypress Mulch
Used as an all-natural soil aggregate to improve drainage & aeration of potting soils while acting as a natural insect repellant. Similar in appearance & function to pine mulch, but without the dangerous risks associated with pine oil & dust around reptiles & amphibians. Cypress has a slightly acidic pH rating (similar to peat), so keep that in mind if you are already using an acidic soil mix. A great add-in (or soil alone) for plants like Nepenthes!
 
 

Orchid Bark - Fine Grade

High quality fir bark

Orchid Bark
With relatively high levels of water-extractable phosphorus & potassium, and moderate levels of some micronutrients, it's no wonder that fir bark is one of the most commonly used bark aggregates in the horticultural industry. (It also has lower levels of beneficial calcium, magnesium, and sulfur.) With a more acidic pH, fir bark is very commonly used to plant Orchids as well as many other tropical plants. Fir bark is also commonly added to different soils to increase drainage, aeration, and to resist compacting.
 
 

Peat Moss

Canadian Sourced OMRI Organic

Peat Moss
Peat moss is probably the most common ingredient in any potting soil for it's extremely inexpensive cost, and it's ability to retain water once it's saturated. Peat moss is often referred to as "Sphagnum peat moss", since peat is actually just decomposed, processed Sphagnum moss. We don't recommended peat as a standalone ingredient for potting soil for most plants, due to it's acidic pH level (ranging from 3.0-4.5), and it's relatively low nutrient content. Our horticultural peat moss is Canadian, which is thought to have a higher (more neutral) pH level than peat from other sources, and is sustainably harvested. Peat is also used as an add-in to lower the pH level of soil in many situations. An OMRI-recognized organic substrate.
 
NEHERP Note
We've got plenty of peat available for your convenience, but if you need a large quantity (10+ gallons), you might want to check at your local nursery. Our prices need to include a little extra to help cover our extremely low shipping rates. We wish we could sell/ship it cheaper, but peat is very bulky to ship. If you need a lot, check your local nursery for organic, pesticide-free, fertilizer-free, "wetting agent" free, 100% pure Canadian peat moss to see if you can save a few bucks.
