These pellets made from coconut fiber are a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to peat pots and pellets. Although we still offer traditional peat products, we strongly encourage you to switch to this highly renewable material and protect finite and environmentally fragile peat resources. Use coco fiber pots and pellets exactly as you would the peat as both types perform the same while coco fiber also has higher resistance to mold, 10 times faster water absorption, and holds more water and retains it longer resulting in less watering. The Pellets are 1.65" round.
This year I bought some Jiffy Peat Pellets and some Coconut Fiber Pellets. The coconut fiber pellets work just as well as the Jiffy peat pellets however the sprouting time is a little longer. They do however seem to hold moisture better. When first starting they take longer to expand fully, but not a big deal for me. Overall I think these coconut fiber pellets work great for my needs, and I will be using them again next season.Review by Noel D. (on 2/20/12)
