Coir pots are made from coir fiber blended with natural rubber. They are 100% biodegradable used for horticulture, in an ornamental plant, vine and tree nurseries, as well as for the domestic gardening. When plants grow in coir pots preserves roots from breaking and develops many tiny roots throughout the walls. They retain water for a long time also acts as organic nutrition to the plants. Plants planted directly into the ground in coir pots will settle in and take off more quickly.
Coir pots are clearly the way to go for plant production in an environmentally friendly way.
Advantages of Samatva Coir Pots.
The Coco Coir Pot is easily Biodegradable and transforms into Organic Matter in due course Containers impermeable to roots all cause deformation to the roots. The severity of this depends on the shape of the pot and the development of the plants. The most common problem is coiling of roots, roots gathering in corners, roots growing upwards, crushed roots, etc.
When plants are grown in a Coco Coir Pot, the roots quickly 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”.
The volume of the pot is used 100% by a dense network of root hairs of the plant. In containers with impermeable walls, a few very long roots use all the area around the pot.
Root buds set during aerial containment are immediately activated. There is no shock from transplanting, this difference is particularly marked when ground conditions are difficult (cold, drought, adverse season, etc.).
There is no deformity in the root system, the plant establishes easily and settles into the soil better. This is particularly important for perennials.
