Coconut Water For Plants
In side-by-side trials, coconut water is shown to boost growth just as effectively as synthetic rooting hormones and artificial growth promotants.
97% of our users reported bigger plant growth after adding Groconut® into their plant care routine.
That's because the coconut is LIVING
It contains its own powerful plant growth hormones and 16 essential micro and macronutrients.
The hormones trigger germination and growth while the nutrients nurture and sustain the young plant.
DID YOU KNOW
During germination, coconut water changes from water into a solid? This sponge-like solid is the embryo of the young coconut. It will provide the energy for young roots to burst the (very) tough shell, where the fibre around it will provide the perfect environment for young growth.
We wanted to use it on our own plants
But all of the coconut water on the market had been heat-treated, destroying the beneficial amino acids and growth hormones in the process.
We learned that by harvesting, processing and storing it differently to traditional methods, we could keep the good stuff in.
"I had a Syngonium Wendlandii cutting which has dropped two leaves and was turning yellow. Put it in Groconut for a week to two and it's just pushed out a new leaf. Very stoked considering it was quite an expensive plant that got saved just by putting it in this mixture." - J. Cobbett
Coconut water contains plant growth hormones, amino acids and micronutrients that have been proven to boost plant growth by up to 3 times. Scientists compared the results to artificial plant growth hormones and concluded that coconut water is just as effective and better for the environment.

Traditional fertilisers work by "feeding" the plant tissues, with nutrients like Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium.
Coconut water works by "telling" plant tissues to grow, like rooting hormones and cloning pastes do.
Unlike fertilisers, coconut water contains:
• growth hormones that stimulate growth of roots and foliage
• amino acids that act as building blocks to build strong cell walls
Groconut is safe to use in every second water on your plants for a visible boost in foliar and root growth.
Yes! Using coconut water has been proven to increase fertiliser uptake. Use with every second water to increase nutrient uptake and promote faster growth of healthier roots and foliage.
Nature's plant growth promoter
Coconut water is shown to significantly speed up the rate of growth and increase yield on herbs like bananas, vegetables like broccoli, and fruit like capsicum (pictured above).
Left: Fertiliser only
Right: Fertiliser + Groconut®
...Even in those hard-to-root plants, like this Variegated Monstera Standleyana. Use Groconut® as a natural plant growth promoter to improve chances of success in propagation in cuttings, air layering and seedlings.
Faster germination and growth in seedlings
Use our coconut water once a week on seedlings that grow bigger and faster. No risk of fertilizer burn - just healthy, fast-growing plants!

Social and Environmental Impact
Our products are by-products of the coconut trade. Demand for products like oil and desiccated coconut means that the left over peat and fibre contribute to over 60 million tonnes of bio-waste a year.
Our most exciting achievement yet is building connections with Pacific Island communities, where we are able to turn this by-product into an income stream for those most in need.
