Coconut coir is an ideal substrate mixture for growing in the Autopots hydroponically. It allows for a just the right mixture of water retention and drainage so is perfect for Autopots.
Coir is made from coconut husks.
Coconut coir is made from the thick fibrous husk that surrounds the coconut shell. Coir contains millions of hollow fibrous cells, which absorb the water and nutrient and can hold up to eight times their weight in water. Coir is a hardy substance, lasting three times as long as peat moss. Coconut coir is our recommended substrate for Autopot growing, however you can use many other types of medium, such as clay balls, or perlite or a compost / potting mix mixture.
