NUTRIFIELD COCO PERLITE MIX 70-30 GROWING MEDIA
Nutrifield®’s Coco Premium Perlite Blend 70/30 contains a blend of 70% coco premium coir and 30% perlite which presents many advantages for the modern gardener. The 30% Perlite increases drainage and air flow which makes it possible for more aggressive feeding programs to be implemented without fear of overwatering. Drainage capacity is optimised, so fear of overwatering will be a thing of the past. Plants get a constant supply of fresh, cool air and as much nutrients as the coco coir can hold while the excess flows through. The increased airflow within the medium allowing for greater root transpiration, respiration, and feeding which accelerates growth and flowering. Nutrifield®’s Coco Premium Perlite Blend 70/30 uses Nutrifield®’s PRE-BUFFERED & PH STABILISED Coco Premium Organic Plant Medium.
In its natural form, coco coir can have a negatively charged complex surrounded by Sodium and Potassium. Unbuffered coco coir has too much Sodium which displaces Calcium from any applied nutrients and disrupts the nutrient balance by reducing Calcium availability. Nutrifield®’s Coco Premium Organic Plant Medium solves that problem as it is pre-buffered with Calcium which flushes the Sodium from the coco coir while being washed and pH stabilized at Nutrifield®’s treatment facility.
Nutrifield Premium Coco has been awarded the coveted Dutch RHP certification, an international indication of high quality. Substrates that carry the RHP quality mark in horticulture satisfy the highest chemical and physical requirements, this all to guarantee a safe and reliable application for the grower. The RHP certification ensures that the coir maintains the highest level of consistency and quality, is pest and disease free, thoroughly rinsed, pH stabilized, pre-buffered with calcium, and has a very low salt content.
DYNAMIC GROWING CONDITIONS IN ANY CLIMATE
Perlite is lots of small spheroids made from heating natural volcanic glass. It is pH neutral and is an excellent insulator thereby boosting plant resistance and tolerance to extreme temperatures. Plant roots are able to breathe better in cool air, where oxygen is more accessible, which helps them better withstand extreme conditions.
INCREASED AIR FLOW TO THE ROOT ZONE
Inbound air flow to the rhizosphere is more prominent by the numerous air pockets the 30% perlite creates while 70% coco coir retains the moisture which helps cool the air. Nutrifield®’s Coco Premium Perlite Blend 70/30 does not compact so air flow is maximized making oxygen more available to plants thereby creating an environment for plants to thrive in.
EXCEPTIONAL DRAINAGE WHILE RETAINING ESSENTIAL MOISTURE
Coco coir is well known for its superior water-holding capabilities, while perlites drainage properties are second to none. The combination of coco and perlite permits excess water and unused nutrient solution to drain away more freely while still maintaining the essential amount of moisture needed for ideal growing conditions which permits more aggressive feeding.

Coco in its natural state, coco (coconut husk) is saturated with sodium ions as the coconut trees are grown near seawater which is high in sea salt. Plants are sensitive to sea salt, which can cause stress and impair nutrient uptake. Incorrect pH levels and can also cause plant stress due to impaired nutrient availability, which is commonly referred to as ‘nutrient lockout’. Thus, Nutrifield Premium coco growing media is thoroughly washed and flushed with calcium to remove sea salt and stabilize pH levels.
