Urban Worm Coco Coir is a proven, eco-friendly worm bedding and soil amendment made from coconut husks and is rinsed to remove salt content and features a near-neutral pH. Coco coir is the perfect seed starting base medium. Add worm castings, biochar, and other additives to make the recipe to fit your plant.
In the past, we have used coconut coir from other companies. I did my research ahead of time and felt that we were getting good coir. We used it in worm beds and in our gardening efforts. Even with a good rinse prior to using it in our worm bed, the worms were not reproducing, their numbers went down and salts started forming on the top layer—that’s bad for the worms. We also used it for seed starting for the garden, and we never were able to get any of our seedlings to thrive. After MUCH more research, we settled on the Urban Worm Company. We cautiously ordered a fairly small amount for our own trial. Our seedlings thrived (with added organic fertilizer once they emerged). The next trial was with our worm bed. Almost immediately, we saw an uptick of productivity and reproduction from the worms. So, we ordered quite a bit more coir from the Urban Worm Company to fill a couple new raised beds (we needed somewhere to put all our new seedlings when they got a bit bigger!). We mixed it with compost, worm castings and a few other things, and our garden is thriving!! We definitely recommend the Urban Worm Company for your coconut coir needs!
Product is good. I used 5 gallon buckets to mix in water and have been using handfuls of it over the last couple months to add in the worm bin with my compost scraps.
This is my first with worms. They seem to like it.
