RoLanka’s BioD-SuperLog™ coir super log is an improved rectangular coir log with pre-formed holes for planting and anchoring.
BioD-SuperLog™ 12 is a rectangular coir super log with a cross section of 12 in x 10 in. with pre-formed holes for planting and anchoring. Coir super logs are made from cleaned mattress coir fiber uniformly packed into 12 in x 10 in (30 cm x 25 cm) square log with length of 10 ft. The uniformly-packed coir fiber square log is covered with an outer netting with eye size of 2 in x 2 in (5 cm x 5 cm). The outer net is knitted with 90 lbs. (400 N) strength machine spun bristle coir twine. There are two sets of invisible pre-formed planting holes (vertical and horizontal) in each 10-ft. long log. The invisible holes are covered with coir fiber plugs with 12 in. (30 cm) spacing. The places of plugs are marked with visible markings. One end of the square coir super log comes with a pouch from the netting to facilitate sound connection between 2 logs.
Fabric on one of the super log provides excellent connection.
