A little amplification on the benefits of Thai Coconut Coir and the specific advantages of the Thai Coconut Shell Propagation Box.
While we tend to focus primarily on the benefits to using the Thai Coconut Shell Propagation Box on cultivating prize-winning orchids, the byproducts from coconut husks have been used by gardeners for decades. However, what we get a sense from our international customers that many people are still not familiar with the advantages of coconut-derived growing materials. The process of husking the fibrous portion of the coconut, known as coco coir, dates to the 1980s. Back then, commercial flower growers in the USA found coconut coir allowed the roots of roses and other flowering plants to thrive. Since then, gardening with coconut husk products has grown in popularity.
As stated in our PRODUCTS page, there are many products marketed as “authentic” Coconut Coir in the form of chips, strips, bricks, or shredded mulch using some / several species of coconuts. In the modern consumer market, the outer shell of coconut fruit or coconut husk is used to produce several important products. It is used to make coco husk chips, coco peat, coir fiber, and coco crush. Our Thai nursey partners truly believe it is the best natural organic growing medium in the world.
From potting seedlings to growing magnificent gardens, the Thai coconut husk is used in all applications of growing plants and flowers. It is a raw material mainstay for greenhouse production. Coconut husk can give a growth boost to the plant and help them absorb nutrition more effectively and provides fantastic soil enrichment to the plants by decomposing over time.
Additionally, for flowers like roses, orchids, and anthurium, coconut husks are used in Thailand as the primary and most common plant growing medium. It is also used for the cultivation of several vegetables as well. Bottom line: it has monumental capacity to help grow plants by keeping the moisture inside.
However, in the case of our Thai orchid famers, it is the Thai Coconut Shell Propagation Box, with its raw coir husk attached to the inner shell skin, which makes it the most widely popular and most preferred medium for propagating and growing orchids.
