Promote healthy plant growth with this ideal, high-performance, light, aerated potting mix of coco coir and perlite.

Unleash the potential of every seedling and crop with the PRO7 COCO 70/30  Coco Perlite mix by Jiffy, a blend of 70% organic coco coir and 30% perlite. designed for garden enthusiasts who seek nothing but the best for their plants, this blend promotes healthy plant growth and soil health while emphasizing sustainability. Coconut Coir, also known as coco coir offers several benefits over traditional soil mixes by being environmentally conscious with its renewable peat-free qualities and also by providing optimal conditions for vigorous root development.

So, what is coco coir, exactly?

Coco coir is the fibrous coating that surrounds the hard shell of coconuts, contained within the protective outer husk. It is a useful by-product, and the tough fibres within it have traditionally been used to make ropes and matting. It has a mixed texture of long fibres and particles of pith, which for growing purposes is great – the fibres give an airy, free-draining structure, while the pith is more water-retentive. And the open structure is perfect for root development.

Coco Coir is often referred to as “coco peat” because the pith looks and feels like peat. But don’t be mistaken – coco coir is in fact very different from peat. Peat (sometimes known as Moss Peat) is the partially decayed remains of plants, accumulated over many years, extracted from wetlands and marshy areas. Peat has been naturally composted, contains many plant nutrients, and unless treated, is rather acidic.

Coco coir is pH neutral (neither acidic nor alkaline) and contains almost no plant nutrients at all. But that is a great advantage – it allows the grower to add precisely the nutrients that the plants require, with no danger of imbalance.

And what is perlite?

Perlite is a very lightweight, spongy, granular mineral material made by heating naturally occurring hydrated obsidian (volcanic glass). Like coco coir, it has a neutral pH, and contains no nutrients. When added to coco coir, it helps to open up the structure, prevent compaction, and further improve aeration and drainage. Perlite’s spongy, porous structure easily takes up moisture during watering, but just as easily releases it to the roots. It gives the mix a light, open ‘feel’, and makes waterlogging highly unlikely.


PRO7 coco coir is sourced from world-leading ISO 22000 certified coconut plantations. Prepared to stringent RHP standards, it is meticulously washed and buffered to ensure that it is free from potassium, sodium, and chlorides, and is uncontaminated by weed seeds, pests or pathogens.

When blended with perlite, the mix offers an unparalleled substrate for seedlings, cuttings and young plants, giving them a great start and the very best conditions in which to develop strong healthy roots.

PRO7 COCO 70/30 Coco mix soil offers optimal water retention, drainage and aeration. Its low EC and neutral pH allow the grower to provide preferred nutrients as required by the plants.

Peat-free, sustainable, and eco-friendly, it is a great choice for gardeners who prioritise both plant heath and the environment.
