Coconut fiber absorbs up to 10 times its weight in water and has a near neutral PH so plants are able to absorb more nutrients without having gardeners needing to adjust PH with lime.
SpongEase fibers are unique microscopic tubes that fill then allow excess water to pass through. This creates millions of air spaces providing vital oxygen to plant roots. Increased oxygen and great drainage mean less over watering problems, the #1 reason for plant failure.
SpongEase fibers, resist compaction and degradation so you can use it for least 2 seasons. Plus it's easy to re-hydrate when dry, unlike peat moss, which resists hydration when it dries out.
Natural SpongEase organic potting soil is made from renewable coconut husks, unlike peat moss that's mined from limited and fragile ecosystems. This mining negatively affects our environment by releasing carbon into the atmosphere, contributing to greenhouse gases and global warming. The mining also destroys precious wildlife and contaminates ground water. Note: SpongEase is an inert natural fiber containing minimal nutrients, it is recommended to add fertilizer or mix with compost to feed your plants.
