Our Solutions for Various Crops & Growths

Soil and any other media will usually determine the irrigation and fertilization regime based on the physical and chemical properties of the substrate and per the grown crop. Coco coir allows growers to adjust not just the irrigation and fertigation but also the physical and chemical properties of coco coir in order to achieve optimal performance for each crop.

Some properties are generic and may be desired for any crop and some properties are specifically important for different crops.  We offer our customers coco coir solutions based on their specific climate conditions, type of greenhouse, irrigation system, but first and foremost, the type of their crop.  Some of our coco coir products are suitable for a very large range of crops and growing conditions, but some crops require specific properties which we take into consideration in the product design.

In the following data, you may find our crop-based solutions for vegetables, cut flowers, blueberries, MJ (Cannabis) and nurseries.


Cannabis requires a well drained substrate to allow for proper manipulation of growth


Open Top System for blueberries has been created by combining the ideal volume coco-coir blends


Best quality Grow Bags for all kinds of vagetables and strawberries growths.


Various growing concepts allowing the use of coco as loose coco in pots, containers or grow bags


In some cases coco-peat blends can be used and sourced as loos material from our mixes plant


Potting soil and mixtures sourcing various substrates with coco are becoming more prominent

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the quantity of Coco substrate that I need for each plant?

Obviously the answer deviates from crop to crop. For example the volume of Coco coir needed for a tomato plant is about 5-6 liters. The volume of Coco coir needed for a strawberry plant is about 0.7-1 liter. There are also some other parameters to consider, like  irrigation system, climate and length of growing period. It is highly recommended to consult with our agronomic staff before making a decision.

How many irrigating cycle are needed in one day?

Unlike other Hydroponic systems the answer is more flexible. There are few variables that determine the answer.

  1. Type of Coco coir. For example in a given green House, the 16 mm material will require less cycles than Crush.
  2.  Climate.  A hot climate will require more frequent irrigating cycles.
  3. Stage of growth. As the plant grow, its need for water supply increases. In order to satisfy its ever growing  demand  for water, more water should be applied (In some cases this growing demand can be satisfied by increasing  the duration of each cycle without increasing the number of cycles per day).
  4. System limitations. In some big farms there are a lot of irrigating valves. Sometimes increasing the number of cycles in one valve restricts the ability to irrigate with another valve.

The decision about the number of cycles per one day should take into account all of the  parameters mentioned above.

Why should I buy Pelemix’s Coir-Cocopeat and not others?

  1. Pelemix will never use pre-mature raw material.
  2. Pelemix has double sieving devices which enable the company to remove  fine dust and guarantee that air content is maintained around 20%. Most Coir-Coco-peat producers are not aware of the importance of double-sieving process.
  3. Pelemix's growbags weigh more than it's competitors, and therefore the volume of the growbags is not reduced dramatically during the crop period.
  4. Pelemix is using thicker plastic for its products and guarantees a longer useful life.
  5. In order to help its customers, Pelemix provides periodical visits by an agronomist, to give the growers professional advice.

For how many years can I use the Coco?

Pelemix does not use premature raw materials (except for  crush material). Therefore Pelemix Coir products will last much longer than any product produced of other companies. When using growbags, the limitation of use is determined by the quality of the plastic. Even when using growbags with plastic for 3 years, the plastic will start to disintegrate long before the Coir is unusable.
As for the Coco coir itself,  the material will start loosing its characteristics after about 3 years (except for crush material). The best way to determine if the Coco coir should be replaced is by testing its physical characteristics in a trustworthy laboratory.

What fertilizers should be applied with irrigation?

Unlike soil, a soil-less substrate doesn't contain the nutrients that are essential for plant growth. Therefore, all nutrients should be supplied through irrigation. It is normally recommended to use at least two tanks for different fertilizers and another one for acid. Keep in mind that the Urea is very likely to wash out of a soil-less substrate before becoming available for the plant.
