Coir pots are made of natural coco fiber and rubber (rubberized to hold the pot together). They are produced for use in horticultural farms, flower gardens, greenhouses, and nurseries. Coir pots can be used with natural flower plants to give homes and offices an elegant look. Coir pots are sold in large supermarket chains and retail nurseries.

CocoGreen™ Coco pots are 100% biodegradable and transforms into organic matter on decomposing. Commercial growers can use the pots to grow plants that can be planted directly into the ground, skipping the transplanting step, which often leads to transplant shock.

When plants are grown in CocoGreen™ Coir pots, the roots penetrate the pot walls. Contact with the air stops the roots from growing, root buds start to appear and secondary roots start to develop throughout the pot. This phenomenon is known as “aerial root pruning”.


We produce a wide range of sizes, which are be customized according to the requirements of our clients.

For Best Results

When should I re-pot my plants?

Most plants require re-potting at regular intervals, into larger pots/containers. A good indication that your plant needs re-potting is when its roots are coming through the drainage holes. Ideal times for re-potting are Spring, Summer and early Autumn.

How do I re-pot for best results?

Water the plant in its old pot and allow to drain.

Select a pot that is 25-50mm wider than the old pot. Cover drainage holes with stones or pebbles and partly fill with potting mix. Loosen plants root system. Position plant in centre of new pot. Fill around the edges of the root ball with coir-potting mix to within 20mm of the top of the pot and firm down gently.

Thoroughly water re-potted plants, ensure the coir-potting mixture is uniformly moist and allow to drain. Thereafter water whenever the surface of the potting mixture feels dry to touch.

To maintain vigorous growth and to promote strong root development, plants need to be fed regularly with balanced fertilisers.

How Expand your Coir-Peat Block

Place the COCO PEAT POTTING MIX COIR BLOCK into a wheelbarrow, slowly add around 30 litres of water for the 60L Block. (7 Litres of water for the 15L Block). Allow to soak for a full 10 minutes. Pull apart and churn with your hands, ensuring that the entire mix is thoroughly wet and hydrated. Drain off excess water into the garden bed.
