Urban Jardins Coco Chips is a premium blend of coco peat and quality coco husk chips. Coarse grade husk chips have been included to increase the proportion of large pores and provide an optimized growing media. Utilizing the balancing of air and water within the root zone of the crop - this increases the drainage rate and helps facilitate the leaching of salts and waste materials. Thoroughly washed and buffered to remove excess salts that can inhibit plant growth, and treated with a calcium solution to displace sodium and improve the balance of calcium and potassium on the cation exchange. The UJ Coco Chips are pH stable.
