The most important factor of growing a healthy plant is to make a good mix of soil. If the soil may not hold water well, then it gets very difficult to grow plants with less water. In such cases, coco coir can come to your rescue. Coco coir is an organic soil amendment that is useful in improvising the soil according to the plant needs.
