Cocorado’s mission is to take the hard work out of selecting the right soil for your growing needs. Our blends have been formulated to serve in most small-to-large scale cultivation circumstances. We only use top-shelf, sustainably-sourced ingredients in our blends.
We use organic, OMRI-listed coconut coir as the base of our blends – which provides an array of benefits. Coconut coir (also known as coco) has excellent hydrologic benefits including maximized water retention, superior wettability, and proper drainage.
Deep root growth is promoted by coco having excellent aeration as well as nutrient retention – providing roots with the oxygen and nutrients required for maximum growth efficiency. Coupled with uniform composition & pest prevention, coco is the grower’s choice for optimum yields.
We test our product – from both the quality assurance perspective but also via actual end-user feedback. Our in-house experts have decades of combined experience to create the ultimate blends for nearly any seedling, young plant, or mature plant.
Feedback is crucial to us. We take it seriously, and this is how we develop our products. Our products team is dedicated to providing the best customer experience and results. Having that feeling you get when your plants are healthy, happy, and growing like crazy – is our goal.
Our products are designed to give your grow operations what it needs. Our products are tailor made to give your plants the best possible medium to grow to their fullest potential.
Coconut coir is harvested from the husks of coconuts through a multi-year process that includes aging, rinsing, blending, and packaging. The aging process is monitored through a dedicated system to avoid pathogen growth and promote optimal consistency.
After aging, the coconut coir is rinsed with clean, pH-monitored water to flush out salts before being blended and packaged. Rinsing the coco is key to ensuring low to no electrical conductivity (EC) and an acceptable pH. Our targeted EC is less than 700 mS/cm, with a pH range of 5.5 to 6.8.
Now that our coco is properly prepared, the fluffing begins. The fluffing process is performed with filtered Colorado water to ensure the most consistent and cleanest base for our blends. Once fluffed, we mix organic ingredients in various proprietary blends to meet our customers’ needs.
As cultivators, we know the value of starting out with the right products and methods. You have time, money, and emotional investment in your project – failure is not an option. Our team is dedicated to providing products to our customers that enable success and consistency – building long-term relationships.
