Clean Coco – Storage Guidelines

Clean Coco – Storage Guidelines

Clean Coco is subject to degradation and contamination if stored incorrectly. Proper storage and inventory rotation will maximize shelf life and minimize potential crop contamination.

Indoor Storage – We only store indoors and recommend doing the same

  • Ideal location is protected from moisture, sunlight, and extreme temperature fluctuations
  • Store on pallets to avoid contact with the ground
  • Do not store in growing areas to avoid accidental wetting or exposure to pests
  • Keep unopened bags wrapped or covered to provide further protectionOutdoor Storage – We do not recommend storing Clean Coco outdoors. If it’s your only option:
  • Store on pallets or elevated surface to avoid contact with the ground and flooded areas
  • Keep vegetation cleared away from storage area to avoid contamination from weeds or insects
  • Place traps near storage area to control rodent populations
  • Store under open air roof or cover with tarps to minimize sun and moisture damage
  • Do not spray chemicals near the stored media
  • Keep shrink wrap on pallet until ready for use
  • Storing media outdoors leads to faster degradation and higher probability of contaminationBest Practices
  • Practice First In, First Out inventory rotation by using the oldest product first
  • If packaging is torn or damaged, seal with tape
  • If product arrives frozen, or freezes in storage, thaw completely before using
  • Avoid stacking pallets or placing heavy items on top of pallets to prevent compaction
  • Do not store in greenhouses to avoid accidental wetting or exposure to pests
  • Try to maintain a temperature of 40-70° F and relative humidity below 55%
