The coconut husk is the outer layer of the coconut fruit, consisting of long fibers and coconut pith particles. Coconut Husk Chips or Coco Chips are obtained by slicing the coconut husk into pieces resulting in chips of varying sizes. After they are cut, the husk chip slices are then sieved or graded to suit the product specification. Coco Chips are also washed or washed & buffered depending on its application.
With diminishing sources of quality tree bark, the unique properties of Coconut Husk Chips make it a superior alternative to bark based growing medium. Orchid and cut-flower growers are successfully using coconut husk chips instead of bark, finding it has significant advantages in terms of quality, consistency, and even lower production costs.
