What’s so good about coconut water?
Coconut water is nutrient-dense with plant growth regulators that naturally boost growth. Coconut water is the liquid endosperm of the coconut palm tree, and this water contains components which encourage vigorous growth despite harsh & unfertile conditions where coconut palms often grow.
What do plants love about coconut water?
There are 3 key ingredients in coconut water: auxin, cytokins and gibberellin. Furthermore, it’s naturally high in potassium, zinc, selenium, iron, copper and manganese. Auxin is an essential element that controls almost every aspect of plant development. It’s one of the main ingredients in synthetic rooting hormones as it initiates root growth in cuttings – this is why Groconut has been so successful for propagation, but without anything synthetic! Cytokinins are involved in multiple plant processes including cell division (ie: growth), new shoot and root formation as well as bud growth and strong stem growth. Gibberellin is a plant growth hormone that stimulates cells of germinating seeds. It helps cells during growth, and helps encourage budding.
How much Groconut should you use?
The dose and application varies depending on use. Refer to the directions tab.
Why not use bottled coconut water instead?
Bottled coconut water is pasteurized, meaning it’s been through an extensive heating process which denatures and destroys the delicate phytohormones and nutrients that are responsible for activating growth.
Ok, how about fresh raw coconut water?
Yes, you can. Groconut is made from young, green, fresh coconuts. Make sure to buy freshly picked green baby coconuts for the best results for your plants – or keep it simple and buy Groconut instead!
Last one – can you use coconut water powders available at the shops?
We wouldn’t recommend it unless you know what they’ve been treated with. In most cases coconut water powders are spray-dried – similar to pasteurization of coconut water – which destroys the delicate phytonutrients that benefit your plants. Groconut is rapid freeze-dried. Freeze-drying is a longer and more labour intensive process but it allows the phytonutrients to stay intact and available for plants to uptake.
