Description

Enhance your soil. Use this expandable brick of all-natural coconut fiber (coir) to improve your soil, making it easy for plants to stretch out their root systems. Loosens hard clay soil and adds water-retaining fibers to sandy soil. Resists compacting and remains porous for air circulation — the perfect, sterile growing medium. Made from coconut husks. Expands to nearly 2 gallons when you add 1 1/5 gallons of lukewarm water. Each brick breaks down into enough coir medium for approximately 4 trees.

Works great in giving that plant the boost it needs to survive and thrive in the early stages of planting.

This is fantastic for pots and for the newly planted trees and roses in my clay soil. I'm in Indiana, and these blocks work better than sand at breaking up the clay and allowing the roots to grow. Good stuff.

I have a lot of heavy clay soil and I found that this product really helps keep the soil from re-compacting after planting. The peach tree I used it on is twice the size of the one I didn't. In addition I use leaf compost and ground tree mulch from the city and incorporate that as well to establish water and air channels.

I have used it before, and it is excellent for the soil.

We have clay soil and it tends to be wet. Hoping this will give the trees we plan to plant, a good start.

Are you supposed to crumble these bricks or what?
Araceli D on May 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you will just let a whole brick soak in a bucket 3/4 filled with water for 15 or 20 minutes or longer, the brick will begin to crumble on its own. If the brick has not completely fallen apart after soaking for a while, it is a fairly simple matter to crumble any remaining lumps with a little bit of squeezing by hand in the bucket.
We ordered 6 trees and six coco fiber bricks. Is it ok to use 1 brick per tree? The soil is hard limestone. I dug a 3x3 foot 18" deep hole for each
tree.
Dennis S on May 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It really does expand as described, which amazed me and it is peat-like when moistened. One brick per tree is a good start but I would add in some compost, organic top soil or garden soil as well. Remember that much organic material that you add to native soil will eventually degrade so give those trees a good start. Don't just plant the tree directly into the coco fiber/compost: thoroughly mix it with equal amount of native soil. Good luck!
Does this smell sweet like Coconut or does it smell like hay?
Teresa F on Apr 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I actually didn't notice a smell at all. But if you really try hard, you can determine a faint hay/straw smell. But again I had to really try to even notice.

Really great stuff!
So far I've used the CocoFiber potting medium with two apple trees and a bush cherry and all three are thriving. Where I live, it is extremely sandy soil and I have had difficulty getting any kind of fruit trees (or even vegetables for that matter) to thrive. I truly believe my happy apple trees are due to this potting medium. I will continue to use it from now on when planting.

First But Certainly Not Last
This was the first time I had ordered the cocofiber. It will not be the last! I love this stuff. It hydrates quickly, mixes with the soil well and very easy to use. I used one brick for every two trees. The trees must like it too because the are leafing out.

Too soon to tell
I used the coco fiber but have no idea if it's doing any good as it's been in the ground for three weeks. The trees have growth on them so I guess that's a plus. Easy to mix and I was told that one package is good for two trees.
