Coco disc is an eco-friendly solution for gardeners

What is a coco disc? A coco disc is a type of coco coir product. What is cocopeat made of? Coco peat is a dust-like material that remains after extracting coco fibers from the coconut husk. What is cocopeat used for? It’s got loads of benefits for your soil, like making it better structured, retaining moisture, providing aeration, and preventing fungus. And it’s a natural fertilizer full of nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and calcium.

Coco discs are made by compressing this coco peat into round-shaped blocks using hydraulic or mechanical presses. The compression reduces the volume and increases the density of the coco peat. Due to this you can easily transport and store them. Did you know you can expand compressed coco discs when you add water? They then become a fluffy and airy growing medium for plants.
