Coco-fibre pots are our sustainable alternative to nursery industry standard plastic pots. Repurposed in nursery containers, coconut fibre is a solution that is ecologically wise, provides community benefits, is a time-saver, and allows us to offer you healthier plants. We have field tested this solution for several years, and we see positive results!

Benefits that we have seen for ourselves and heard of from our valued customers: Early survivability benefit

  • Pot stays on the plant, reducing planting stress
  • No wicking of moisture up from the ground through exposed rim of coco pot
  • Unaltered soil pH and nutrient availability as coco fibres degrade
  • Excellent root penetration, ensuring quick establishment

Long-term health benefit

  • Porous pot walls allow air root pruning
  • Significantly reduced root circling inside the pot
  • Increased lateral root branching in the ground, pursuant to natural rooting
  • Natural root structure benefits the plant for its lifetime
  • Healthy roots = healthy plants!

Time saving benefit

  • No need to remove pots
  • No need to pick up empty pots
  • No need to dispose of pots when the job is done

Ecological benefit

  • No plastic or non-renewable materials used
  • Only 3 ingredients: coconut husk fibre, organic latex, trace sulphur
  • Coconut husk fibre is a common by-product of the coconut industry

Community benefit
