Maximize Plant Growth
When you add Groconut into your plant care routine, you’re adding bio-active ingredients that work differently to fertilizers.
Increase Nutrient Absorption
Plant nutrients can be tricky to get right. Take the Watermelon Peperiomia for example. Calcium deficiency is just one of the many issues that indoor #plant growers encounter in this plant type. The symptoms? Deformed, split, dull-coloured leaves that don't grow perfectly - no matter what you do.
Groconut's active ingredients are clinically proven to significantly increase absorption of calcium and other nutrients, so when you use it alongside your favourite fertiliser you’ll help your plants to absorb as much of the quality nutrients as they can!
Reduce Risk of Plant Death
"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
Groconut’s active ingredients contain properties that are proven to delay plant death, giving your plants more time to establish new growth. This is particularly useful for helping plants bounce back from stress caused by things like postage, over-watering, under-watering, sunburn, and transplanting.
Stimulate Plant Growth
Groconut's active ingredients work differently to NPK fertilisers, so you can use it to boost growth of unrooted cuttings AND use it together with fertilisers on established plants.
The active ingredients contain:
• Phytohormones to promote root and foliar growth
• Amino acids to act as building blocks in plant tissue walls
• Complex sugars to provide energy
• Micro-nutrients that are rapidly absorbed by plant tissues
The coconut is one of the biggest seeds in the world. It grows in the harshest, most infertile conditions (think sand and salt water)!
Inside the coconut are natural phytohormones (like auxin and cytokinin) which grow roots and shoots so strong that they can break through a coconut shell! 💪
Our coconuts are grown sustainably and organically. They're harvested and processed in a special way to make sure as much of these phytohormones stay intact, which is why our customers see the results.
Most coconut waters are not manufactured for their plant growth promoting qualities. The amino acids and hormones are easily destroyed and are broken down by most processing methods, like:
This method involves pasteurization which destroys the natural growth hormones, making it useless as a plant growth promotant. Many bottled coconut waters contain added sugars and flavours which isn't good for your plants.
2. Spray Drying:
The spray drying method exposes the ingredients to high temperatures which also break down the natural growth hormones and amino acids, making the end product useless for promoting growth.
3. Freeze drying:
Coconut water is a very difficult thing to freeze dry. On our quest to discover how to create the best coconut water for plant growth, we found that freezedrying is the better option out of the three. However we were shocked to find that many of the freeze-dried coconut water powders that we investigated weren't actually coconut water! Many are processed to include a higher percentage of coconut meat than water (making it less water soluble and less effective). We found that others that claimed to be just coconut "water" had a significant amounts of fillers, meaning you'd be buying more fillers than coconut water.
Our patent-pending product is processed in a way that keeps the beneficial nutrients intact and undergoes routine fertiliser lab-testing, so that we know that the goodness is intact and you can maximize plant growth, naturally!
Unlike other plant growth promotants, Groconut products are certified non-toxic by the Australian and NZ Poisons Centre. They are also 100% environmentally friendly and the hormones start breaking down once you've mixed it (unlike man-made plant growth hormones that take a lot longer to break down and have proven negative effects on our environment).
Rooting Stimulant and Propagation Booster:
Soak cuttings in a solution of ½ teaspoon of Groconut powder mixed in 500ml of water. Use Groconut foliar spray (see below) up to once a week to promote growth of new roots and new foliage.
Plant Growth Booster (foliar spray):
Mix ¼ teaspoon of Groconut in 1 litre of water. Spray both sides of foliage once a week through the growing seasons to help promote faster, healthier growth. We don't use preservatives, so we recommend using mixed solution immediately.
Plant Growth Booster (soil):
Mix ¼ to ½ teaspoon of Groconut in 1 litre of water. Use this solution with every second water to help promote faster, healthier growth.
No, it's classed as a plant growth tonic - like seaweed!
Fertilisers work by providing chemicals that "feed" plants like nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium (also known as NPK). Although Groconut also contains all of the nutrients that are essential for plant growth, they are in much lower concentrations meaning it can't be classed as a fertiliser. This makes Groconut perfect for promoting growth in young plants and cuttings.
Tonics and plant growth stimulants work by initiating growth through plant growth hormones, similar to the way rooting hormones and keiki pastes work. It sends messages to plant tissues to tell them to grow more offshoots, more roots and bigger, stronger cell walls.
Understanding Plant Growth Hormones
• Auxin is usually found in the synthetic form in rooting hormone products like Clonex and Ibadex.
• Cytokinin is the active ingredient of cloning pastes (like Urban Botanist's Cloning paste) to induce growth of new foliage.
• Gibberellic Acid is used to break dormancy of buds and seeds.
Coconut water is also naturally rich in the hormones ethylene and asbicin, as well as brassino-steriods, salicylates and jasmonates which are known to work similarly to artificial hormones for significantly boosting plant growth.
We hear you... It sounds too good to be true.
That’s why it’s our mission to provide you with all of the fact-based information that you need about our product.
Coconut Water for Plants: Why haven't you heard about it before?
The more you learn about how coconut water affects plant growth, the more you’ll wonder why you haven’t heard about this before.
Because other coconut waters aren't manufactured for plant growth, and keeping the delicate beneficial nutrients is a longer process than traditional manufacturing methods.
That's why we created Groconut, a brand dedicated to providing you with research-backed information and the best quality horticultural-grade coconut water available. What makes our formula different is that our coconuts are harvested at a particular time and processed differently than conventional methods, to ensure that the natural hormones, amino acids and other phytonutrients stay intact, unlike other coconut waters which are processed for taste and convenience.
This is lets us help you and other growers benefit from better plant growth, naturally!
Better Homegrown Veggies
Groconut’s not just for houseplants. Its’s clinically proven to boost growth in produce, too!
1. Fast-Forward Plant Development
Boost growth by up to 169%!
Both independent AND clinical data proves that the active ingredients inside Groconut really do speed up plant growth. Clinical data shows that leaf growth is almost doubled and root mass is nearly tripled when our active ingredients are used on tomato seedlings¹. Another study on capsicum plants showed the same results, with treated plants maturing and ripening two weeks earlier than the non-treated plants.
2. Nutritious & Flavoursome Produce
Give up the chemicals and grow bigger, healthier fruits and veggies.
Although Groconut’s N-P-K is low, our active ingredients are clinically proven to grow brassica vegetables just as effectively as commercial N-P-K liquid fertilizer². That’s because biostimulants work differently to fertilizers, and Groconut works at a bioactive level to produce better growth. This means it uses vitamins, amino acids, complex carbohydrates, phytohormones and essential micronutrients that maximize nutrient absorption and facilitate boosted growth.
3. Rapid Multiplication
For more plants to share with friends and family!
Groconut contains an a balanced selection of plant growth hormones that work together to stimulate fuller, denser growth. One clinical study concludes that the active ingredients inside Groconut can be used as a tool to help farmers grow their banana farms more efficiently. Not only does using it save costs on buying more plants, the offshoots produced by the treated plants grow taller and faster than offshoots produced by non-treated plants³.
A few things can cause this:
1. Hard water deposits can accumulate on the leaves due to chemicals in tap water - try using rain water or distilled water.
2. Try using a spray bottle with a finer nozzle, so that droplets don't accumulate. 3. Try misting late at night or early in the morning (when maximum absorption happens through leaves).
Because indoor plants aren't exposed to rain (which naturally would remove dust and residues), it's recommended that you either hose down or wipe foliage with a damp cloth every couple of months to remove dust and residue.
We are proud to not use any preservatives in our formula, but to ensure the shelf life is kept, please keep your Groconut in the fridge once the seal has been broken.
Groconut is 100% safe and can't be overused as long as you stick to the recommended ratios (click here to learn how to use)
For young plants and cuttings, Groconut is all that you need to help grow and nourish new foliage and root systems! For established plants we recommend using fertiliser and Groconut together for maximum growth.
One last thing...
Mother nature loves our product, too!
That's because a when a product is classed as "organic" - it doesn't mean that it's origins are truly organic. Artificial hormones, pesticides and other additives are often found in "organic" products.
Unlike most other plant growth promotants, our formula is organically and sustainably-sourced.
We believe that it’s our mission to create a brand that replaces toxic plant care products with certified non-toxic and truly sustainable ingredients that are loved by growers for both efficacy and sustainability.
