Coco GrowBags are one of the most modern hydroponics growing technologies. Because of the several benefits and advantages, it is replacing other hydroponics technologies. It provides better control on the growth and allows savings in water and fertilizers.

COIR MATERIAL

By using Pelemix sieving technology, Pelemix removed the fine dust from the raw material and classify it into different grades: 1/6 inch, 1/4 inch, 1/2 inch that are mainly used in nurseries. 3/4 inch, P.L.F, Crush used in the horticulture professional sector. Pelemix keeps the important chemical factors at the proper range (EC/PH) by using the natural local rains or local pumped waters from close natutal rivers.

Treated Coir Coco Peat

Pelemix has identified the need of some growers to receive the Cocopeatafter it was treated with CaNO3. Therefore Pelemix offers its customers, treated materials which were treated with CaNO3, and then washed with clean water. The treated products are very popular in vegetable nurseries and flowers nurseries. It is possible to buy treated products that were disinfected with steam. We show here a sample of treated material that was tested in a trustworthy laboratory. The results in the table are for demonstration.
