What is Coconut Coir Pith Substrate?

Coconut Coir Pith is a substrate made of compressed coconut fiber that can be expanded. It has a lot of nutrients, keeps water in, and lets air in—all key factors for happy and healthy plants. Coconut coir pith, or coconut fiber, is a fantastic substrate for gardening. Coconut coir pith, also known as coconut peat, is processed through a series of steps. The first step involves collecting the coconut husks and then separating the coir fiber from them. After the fibers are taken out, the remaining material is thoroughly washed to get rid of any dirt. After washing, the coir pith is dried in the sun or with machines to reduce its moisture content. It is then sieved to remove any larger particles and graded based on particle size. The final step involves compressing the coir pith into blocks or briquettes using hydraulic presses. These blocks or briquettes can be easily transported and stored until they are ready for use.

How to use Coir Pith 

Harris Coconut Coir Pith Substrate is the ultimate growing medium for plants. It’s easy to use, with an effortless expansion in minutes. When ready to use, soak one coir brick in warm water, allowing the strands to penetrate. Once water is added, the coir brick begins to absorb and expand. Keep in mind that this will extend to at least 8 times its original size. Drain excess water and break apart the enlarged fibers with your hands or a trowel to use the required amount. Its pH-balanced content is perfect for farming, offering long-term nutrition to plants without the need for fertilizers or soil amendments. With excellent air and water holding capacity, as well as a high cation exchange capacity (CEC) that helps release soil nutrients slowly over time, you can rest easy knowing your plants get their nutrient requirements met. Gardening doesn’t get any easier than this!

Coir Pith vs. synthetic fertilizers

Coconut coir pith has several benefits as a fertilizer over other fertilizers. Here are some of them:

  • Eco-friendly: Coconut coir pith is a renewable resource, unlike many other fertilizers which are derived from non-renewable sources.
  • High water retention: Coconut coir pith can hold up to 10 times its weight in water, making it an excellent choice for plants that require consistent moisture.
  • Nutrient-rich: Coconut coir pith contains high levels of essential plant nutrients such as potassium, magnesium, and calcium, which help promote healthy plant growth.
  • pH neutral: Unlike many other fertilizers that may have acidic or alkaline properties, coconut coir pith has a neutral pH level, making it suitable for a wide range of plants.
  • Disease-resistant: Coconut coir pith is naturally resistant to plant diseases and pests, reducing the need for harmful chemical pesticides and fungicides.
  • Improves soil structure: Adding coconut coir pith to soil can improve its structure by increasing porosity and promoting better drainage.


Overall, coconut coir pith is a sustainable and effective alternative to traditional synthetic fertilizers that offers numerous benefits for both plants and the environment.
