Coco comes from the bolster of the coco nut. A renewable raw material, because a coconut palm always produces new coco nuts. Coco naturally has a high air holding capacity, absorbs water easily and has a good drainage capacity. Coco is a natural product. By transporting coco products in compressed form, the impact of transport on the environment is limited. Coco material can be used and reused as a soil improver.

Hortus Supplies offers coco in pressed blocks of 4.0 – 5.5 kg. The blocks are available in different coarseness. The raw coco comes from the bolster of the coco nut. For the fine substrates, we use coco peat that is released during the production of fibres from the bolster. For the coarse substrates, we cut up the bolster. Coco naturally has a high air holding capacity and easily absorbs water.
We have substrate slabs with their own specifications and their own vegetative or generative impact. The slabs can be customised and are therefore ready for immediate use.
Coco discs are pressed discs of specially selected coco. They are suitable among other things for the cultivation of gerberas, but other ornamental plants and potted plants can also be grown in coco discs. Coco discs consist of coarse coco material; this is made of the husk of the coconut. By cutting up the husks, an airy, easily steerable and powerful growing medium is created with good draining properties. The discs are compressed for transport and swell to their original size by adding water.
