HY-GEN® COIRLITE™ is a blend of natural COIR and PERLITE, a natural expanded aggregate. The COCOPEAT or COIR is a hydroponic growing medium and sourced from some of the world’s largest cocopeat producers. The cocopeat is pH stabilised to maintain steady pH conditions around the root zone. Calcium / Magnesium are used to buffer the coco peat to assist in conditioning and to eliminate nuisance chemicals such as sodium.
The PERLITE is sourced from high quality material, which is low in heavy metals and maintains a strong structure making it less likely to crush under pressure when used. The particle size and strength ensures that it meets the highest standards for Horticulture.
HY-GEN® COIRLITE™ is pH stable and therefore does not affect or change the pH conditions around the root zone. This allows the nutrients to do the job they were intended to do. It doesn’t contain nuisance chemicals such as sodium, which could otherwise adversely affect plant health. HY-GEN® COIRLITE™ combines the beneficial properties of both ingredients to yield a growing medium with superior properties, which increases drainage and helps improve aeration around the root zone. It is prepared and processed under strict guidelines to meet high standards and quality, strength and moisture holding capability.
HY-GEN® COIRLITE™ is compatible with soluble coco specific nutrients such as HY-GEN® COCOGROW™ and COCOBLOOM™ two-part formula and CORNUCOPIA COCOGROW™ and COCOBLOOM™ single-part formula. HY-GEN® COIRLITE™ is great for the home gardener and large-scale commercial growers. It’s suitable for a broad number of crops and does not contain any added harmful chemicals.
