For Peat’s Sake! "One Pot Wonder" eco coir compost block, creates the optimum soil structure for your plants. Perfect for plant pots, terrariums, adding to a compost mix or to give as an eco-friendly gift for any plant enthusiast.
Made from the husks of coconuts, coir compost is one of the most environmentally friendly composts you can buy. When it comes to this hairy fruit, nothing goes to waste. The white centre is used for food or cosmetics, the long fibres of the husk are turned into ropes, brushes or matting and the shorter fibres are used for compost. These fibres are collectively called coir.
It’s washed and buffered, using the industry's first state-of-the-art wastewater recycling facility, to remove unwanted salts that occur naturally. After production, the coir compost is compressed to the correct size and packaged. All the grower needs to do on receipt is add water and start planting.
How To Use:
Our coir compost has been dehydrated, compressed and packaged. All the grower needs to do on receipt is add water and start planting.
It's as easy as that.
Our coir will improve drainage, air circulation and water retention, helping create a perfect environment to encourage healthy root growth. The fibres have a high cation exchange capacity, meaning they absorb, store and release nutrients very effectively, reducing nutrient leaching and helping your plant absorb plant food more efficiently.The coir fibres are specially graded, washed and buffered, using a waste water recycling facility, giving your plant a neutral, safe, gentle soil to grow in.
Cactus Care Tips: The most common question I get asked is 'How NOT to kill your Cactus'
So here it is plain and simple...
Cactus Tips: Luckily our little prickly friends are hearty creatures & are built for mother nature's land of neglect... the desert. The most common cactus or succulent killer is over watering. Your cactus wants 'dry feet' as its typical terrains are dry & arid, so go easy on H2O so the roots don't rot.
Only water when soil dries. This can range depending the environment, but usually once a month in cooler seasons & no more than twice a month in warmer seasons. During the winter cold season cacti and succulents become dormant so you do not need to water them, give them a lil winter break. Ideally use a spray bottle or mister & try not to water the actual plant, but the soil directly around the base.
Your concrete planter porous so the pot itself recreates a rocky base and imitates the natural layers for drainage that the plants enjoy from their desert home. Also each parcel includes a layer of extra stones for the pot bottom to help with drainage for roots & extra acidic cactus soil. As a rule of thumb it's good to re-pot your cactus or succulent every 2-4 years, either if it's grown enough to go up a pot size, but mainly to replenish the soil's nutrients.
Cacti & Succulents prefer light & warmth, but avoid direct sun as they can burn. To assist with growth & flowering use cactus feed in every other watering.
