These coir pots are made purely from coconut fibers and they break down into smaller chunks in the years to come. They are not harmful to nature.
More room for roots to grow:
As compared to other mediums, the coir pots allow the roots to grow freely. They are open and porous where water, roots and air can permeate through easily. This also explains the reason for no drainage holes in the pots, unlike other mediums. There is no concussion of roots. Coir helps in diffusion of water and air, which help the roots, permeate the walls of the pots.
No kinks, No twists and only pruning:
The roots stop growing and start producing secondary roots or buds, leading to a process called aerial root pruning. This prevents the roots from getting twisted or kinked or from shunting its growth. Plastic pots make the roots grow constricted.
No drying property of coir pots:
Additionally, watering the coir pots in frequent intervals of less quantity is advisable as the pots absorb water and dry the excess water. An interesting advantage of these pots is that coir helps in keeping the root system aerated and hydrated. This means that the roots remain moisturized always.
Re-potting or transplanting is a breeze:
You just have to dig and transplant the whole pot into the ground or re-pot them on a larger pot, without the usual trouble of coiling and tangling of roots. The pot will disintegrate on its own. This is a breeze.
Pots provide nutrients to the plants:
Coir pots when transplanted on the ground provide the required nutrients of zinc, magnesium, copper and iron to the plant.Is it not a wise idea to use coir pots when all they can do it to be beneficial to plants in all the above mentioned ways? It is time to take stock, think and thank the coir pots for the exhaustive benefits that it offers.
