This medium is also widely used in hydroponic growing.
Reasons to use coconut fiber
Many growers are starting to integrate coconut fiber into their marijuana plantations since thanks to its characteristics this substrate provides good results for the growing. The truth is that this medium offers many advantages. Here are three of them:
1) Good aeration
One of the main advantages of growing in coconut fiber is that this medium keeps the roots oxygenated, as it can retain large amounts of air, which favors the supply of oxygen to the roots.

Another benefit of coconut fiber is that it is reusable, and since it is obtained from sustainable sources, it is environmentally friendly.

Although this is an excellent growing medium, you must keep in mind that coconut fiber can have some drawbacks, such as retaining a lot of moisture, among others. But many of these drawbacks can be easily solved. So do a little more research before growing in coco fiber.
