Coconut Water For Plants
Tested and proven to significantly boost growth.SHOP NOW
For many centuries, tropical communities across the world have harvested fresh coconut water and used it on their fields to boost their crops. Usually in horticulture we apply a fertiliser that is high in Nitrogen (N), Phosphorous (P) and Potassium (K). Coconut water, however, contains less of these values and instead it contains hormones, enzymes, minerals and vitamins that accelerate growth of developing plants at a biological level.
In a study by Laguna National Institute of Biotechnology, the average shoot weight of tomato seedlings treated with coconut water was almost doubled and root mass was almost tripled in comparison to the control plants:
Average shoot weight increased by 92%:
Coconut water applied: 6.53g
No coconut water applied: 3.3g
Average root weight increased by 169%
Coconut water applied: 1.43g
No coconut water applied: 0.53g
In a case study conducted in 1970 at The Univeristy of Amsterdam, Dr. El Hinnawy concluded that "coconut water, the liquid endosperm of Cocos Nucifera K., acts as a potent stimulus to the growth and development of plant tissue" and provided "maximum growth stimulation without toxicity to the root tissue.”
That case study was conducted 50 years ago, and there have been hundreds more conducted since that verify coconut water’s growth boosting effects. Studies show that it’s comparable to artificial plant growth hormones and synthetic biostimulants in young plants, and in bigger plants it increases yield by over 30%.
Well, that’s why we are here.
The coconut trade is driven by the demand for its oil. The rest of the coconut is considered a by-product, so keeping the bioactive properties of its water intact hasn’t been a priority. Instead, the water is bottled and pasteurised (making it awesome as a health food, but ineffective for plant growth due to the pasteurisation process).
At Groconut, it's our mission to harvest the highest-quality ingredients in a way that keeps the bioactive properties intact, so that we can use natural ingredients instead of artificially-made plant growth hormones.
('Cause we reckon the less synthetic chemicals in our homes and ecosystems, the better!)
Use Groconut on its own to speed up the rate of growth in cuttings and propagation, or use alongside your fertilising routine to maximize nutrient uptake. The active ingredients are scientifically proven to:
• Significantly boost the rate of growth of leaves, branches and roots (especially in cuttings and young plants);
• Create healthier soils and more vigorous root systems that have a higher capacity to absorb more vital nutrients;
• Increase resistance to environmental stressors like drought and pests;
• Remove the need for hazardous chemicals and artificial growth stimulants like Ibadex and Clonex
• Delay plant death (giving you more time to fix under/overwatering issues)!
The coconut trade is driven mainly by our demand for it’s oil. The rest of the coconut is considered a by-product (the water is often bottled and sold as a health food, which is great for us, but not for stimulating plant growth).
Thanks to evolving technologies, we’re able to put more focus into how we harvest and keep the plant growth-boosting properties intact, allowing growers around the world to reap the benefits and take their growing to a whole new level.Shop Now
Why Use Groconut?
• Faster, healthier growth is proven by research and backed by our users;
• Promote sustainability;
• Use as little as
¼ tsp per litre of water;
• Vegan and organic;
Groconut may help your homegrown produce last longer once harvested. Studies show that senescence (or aging) is significantly slowed when produce is treated with coconut water after harvesting.
"Results showed that all four test vegetables reacted effectively to coconut water, their green leaves coloration was maintained for a longer period of days compared to other treatments." - CLICK HERE TO READ THE ARTICLE
Coconut water is naturally rich in amino acids, phytohormones and electrolytes and these work together with the essential macro and micronutrients to build healthier plant tissues that are scientifically proven to be stronger, grow faster and be more resilient to stress.
It's also known to have "plant life prolonging effects" meaning you more time to rectify common issues such as over/underwatering.

Our own case studies are consistent with data collected from external research. Plants grow healthier, faster and are more resistant to stress.
Check out the difference in just SEVEN months worth of growth with Groconut in this tissue cultured Philodendron Pink Princess (it’s even growing a pup, or baby plant, of its own underneath these leaves!). Follow our Facebook page to keep updated on its growth.
It's a must-have staple for all growers who enjoy seeing results, fast!
