Each coir brick is about the same size as a house brick. The compressed coco coir brick will expand to three times its size when rehydrated with water to create approximately 9 litres of coir.
Coir is ideal for seeds and cuttings. It can be used as a base for homemade compost or added to garden waste compost for aeration. Coir is known by many different names, including coco, coco coir, cocopeat, coco peat, coir fibre, coconut husks and coconut fibre.
