Coir Blocks

Made from compressed coconut fibres, coir makes a very practical alternative to peat.

It is also a dry substrate, perfect for desert terrarium settings or wet it to make it a tropical dwelling substrate. Coconut bedding will hold and maintain moisture better than any other terrarium bedding, and is great for incubation of eggs. It's highly absorbent, making cleaning easy and the used bedding can be safely composted into your garden.

Brilliant stuff Review by Geoff Cresswell
Review
Brilliant stuff for our pet gerbils to live on. Just use the minimum of water to reconstitute. They dig in it and think it's great. We are about to try it with degus next!

I have used coir blocks for years as a potting mix in Australia Review by Kylie
Review
I have used coir blocks for years as a potting mix in Australia, with an approximately 50/50 mix of garden soil to coir. I was very excited to be able to source it here in the UK.
Two things to be aware of: there are no nutrients in the coir, so you need to add some, and once soaked, the coir is very light and won't support anything but the smallest plants - I find the mix of coir and garden soil solves both problems at once. (Posted on 19/12/2012)
