Mini Coir Logs are made from coir fibres with an outer UV stable nylon netting and hanging cord.
Coir fibre has high moisture retention capacity which enables the roots of the plant to grip the natural organic fibre. Ideal for growing bromeliads & air plants.
For best results fully immerse your Mini Coir Log into a solution of Seasol and water for approximately 2-3 hours. This will re-hydrate the coir fibres and also makes the fibre easier to work with when inserting your plants.
Installation: How to make your own bromeliad vertical garden
Our mini coir logs are a great product for creating a hanging bromeliad garden.
Here is a step by step guide for attaching bromeliads to your mini coir log.
The following tools will make the process easier:
Seasol, zip ties or twine, scissors and a screw-driver.
Using your screw driver create holes at a 45 degree angle into the mini coir log to where you would like your bromeliad pups to grow.
Creating a angled hole allows the plants to be attached in an upright position, this prevents the plants from sagging and also provides the root system with a stable base.
5. Zip Ties , Twine
Using your zip ties or twine to secure the pups near the base making sure the bromeliad are attached facing upright (vertically). To do this you need to insert your zip tie / twine into the nylon netting above the bromeliad (see image 1.), then wrap the zip tie / twine around the trunk of the inner flower of the bromeliad plant and secure the bromeliad vertically to the Mini Coir Log (see image 2). Cut off any excess plastic or twine and make sure the plant is secured upright so the bromeliads can grow without sagging and to provide better drainage for the root system.
Ongoing watering is required.
Bromeliads will hold water in its tank (the centre of the plant). Water the tank and try to keeping it full with water. Do not keep stagnate water in the tanks making sure there is new clean water being replaced on a regular basis.
Try to avoid direct sunlight when hanging your mini coir log, too much sun light can cause leaf burn to the bromeliads.
