For an airy, fertile coco mix, grab a bag of 70/30 Tropic CocoMix.
- 70% Coco with 30% Perlite
- Highly fertile - 1% added Ecothrive Charge
- Suits AutoPots, RhizoWilmas & RhizoSystems
Roots get plenty of oxygen, thanks to the airy structure.
It’s tough to overwater - this mix drains well. For beginners, this media's spot on.
It’s a natural volcanic glass that expands rapidly when heated, a bit like popcorn.
It has a rough, white surface with lots of small air pockets and a huge surface area. Perlite is also very firm so won’t compact.
Mixed with coco, it creates an airy media mix that’s compaction resistant.
1L of Perlite typically holds 250ml of water. So it doesn’t reduce the amount of water your coco can hold too much.
Contains Ecothrive Charge
It’s added at a 1% rate to boosts biological activity & fertility of the media without adding too much nutrition.
Rapid Rooting (airy)
The airy structure gives roots access to oxygen – expect rapid rooting.
This mix holds less water than pure coco – it’s tough to overwater, even in a growing system.
No more mixing or measuring your medias – this comes ready to use.
The perlite’s firm structure stops the coco compacting over time, so nutrient uptake and root growth stays high.
It’s been washed & buffered.
