A Coco/Perlite 70/30 mix ideal for growers seeking a high-performance light, aerated substrate.
PRO7 COCO 70/30 Mix contains a combination of two high quality substrates: 70% RHP Certified coco pith mixed fibre substrate with excellent air and water retention properties and 30% perlite. Washed/buffered and charged with added trace elements and beneficial's to aid faster rooting and developing stronger plants. This high-performance light, aerated substrate is well suited for growing short cycle and fast growing plants in pots and recirculation systems.
Our fully buffered coco is really easy to use and is a universal substrate for both the growth stage as well as the flowering stage. The addition of perlite provides a lightness to the media and an air rich substrate that improves drainage, encourages beneficial bacteria colonisation and has a stable pH. All this gives you the perfect base to develop the perfect root structure with fast development and strong plants that are better resistant to high temperatures and superior yields of mouth-watering quality.
Benefits of PRO7 COCO 70/30
•Enriched coco/perlite mix, ideal for propagation or long-term hand watering propagation – speeding up root development.

PRO7 COCO bagged substrate has an open, natural fibre structure thus providing improved air retention properties. It is suitable for all types of cultures, outdoors and indoors.
How to use:
Firstly, we recommend having the optimum start by propagating your seedlings/cuttings in Jiffy 7C plugs or ROOT!T, fed with VitaLink PlantStart, which supplies the perfect ratio of boron to calcium. This is proven to promote rapid root development and vigorous early growth; then for your vegetive phase, transplant into PRO7 COCO and feed with a high-quality professional plant feed such as Vitalink Coco Coir Grow and Vitalink Coco Coir Bloom in your flowering phase.
Media bags are transported on pallets and can become compacted during storage. Before transferring your substrate into pot, we suggest you ‘fluff up’ your medium to break up any compressed lumps. An easy way to do this is to tap the side of the bag, like you would fluff up a pillow. Pour into your pots and run your fingers through the substrate, checking for any lumps that may still be in it and break them up. Settle the mix by tapping edges and base of the pot and plant up.
Ensure the entire medium is completely soaked before planting on to make sure your plants get enough to feed on.
To pre-soak PRO7 COCO substrates, apply a 3/4 to full strength feed until run off appears. Run off is the feed that gathers underneath pots in your saucer or tray after watering.
Hand watering: We recommend using Vitalink Coco Coir nutrients and following the feed schedule. PRO7 COCO prevents over-watering due to its structure, but attention needs to be paid to avoid nutrient reabsorption from pots/containers sitting in any runoff.
Dripper systems: PRO7 COCO 70/30 is best fed little and often. A dripper system is perfect for this. Please note though that the particles in COCO can easily block dripper lines so if using a re-circulating system, we recommend fitting a filter and checking it regularly.
