Why are these things good for growing?
Coco Coir (shredded coconut) retains moisture and provides a good environment – coco coir is one of the most effective growing media for water retention out there. It has been known to absorb up to 10x its weight in water so that the roots of your plants will never get dehydrated. Sphagnum and Reed Sedge peat mosses are different but parts of the same plants. They each offer retention of moisture, aeration to the roots and help prevent tight compaction of the soil which can lead to the inability for water to penetrate. Perlite and vermiculite aid in water retention, however, perlite is the more porous (looking much like a tiny ball of popcorn) which retains water and also allows better drainage than vermiculite.
