Royal Gold is proud to have been the first coco pith based soil company in the United States. Made from the husk of the Coconut, Coconut coir naturally contains large amounts of Potassium that are made available throughout its growth cycle and cannot be washed away. In peat based soils, Potassium is quickly leached and needs to be supplemented. The result of all this Potassium is strong stems which support large, beautiful flowers!
All of Royal Gold Coco is imported from Sri Lanka and shipped to Arcata, CA where we process it with the utmost care. We understand the value of this renewable resource and know how to treat the fiber without damaging it. Our coco bricks are processed into fine grinds with our new cutting edge equipment. Then, a unique hydration process begins which ensures the material is properly pH balanced and the salinity is at a minimum. Finally, we add the highest quality compost tea and a unique biological control that eliminates the chance of unwanted soil born bugs. These steps combined create our excellent potting soils, resulting in higher yields, better flavor, with greater consistency in finished product.
From humble beginnings, with a shovel and some bags, as the first exclusively coco fiber based soil company in California, Royal Gold has become the gold standard in coco fiber growing mediums. In less than a decade we have grown into one of the largest (and most reputable) names in coco fiber, coco-soils, and soilless mixes. Occupying Nearly 15 acres in the heart of Humboldt County California, Royal Gold has redefined the expectation of quality in bagged and bulk soil products.
With unprecedented quality control standards, and unparalleled oversight, on in house manufacturing, Royal Gold strives for excellence in everything we do. As we continue to develop a sustainable and efficient manufacturing process, we provide competitively priced products with outstanding customer service.
