Also known as coco coir, coco peat, coconut fiber, or many other branded names, this soil amendment and hydroponic medium is a fantastic addition to most gardens. In this video, we’re going to talk about:

– How coco coir is made
– What to watch out for when buying from the store
– The difference between coco coir, coconut fiber, and coco chips
– The coco vs. soil debate
– The upsides and downsides of growing in coco coir

Epic Gardening is much more than a YouTube channel. I have a website with 300+ gardening tutorials as well as a podcast where I release daily gardening tips in five minutes or less. There’s also a Facebook group with over 1,500 other gardeners sharing their tips.

Coconut coir is being used in seed starting and potting and hydroponic mixes. Kevin does a good job explaining what coconut coir is, how it’s made, the best types for outdoor garden and hydroponic systems and how to mix it with potting soils.
