How to use Coco peat?
Coco peat is compressed and is widely exported in a dry brick form. When saturated, this great growing medium expands, providing improved aeration for plants.
The basic principle of using a dry coir brick is to water and wet the coir brick.
- Place a brick in a large bucket and pour enough water into it to completely wet the brick.
- Allow the coco peat to soak in the water for a few minutes so it can loosen up and absorb the water.
- If it appears to be dry, add more water. If it’s loose, it comes to a halt.
- Once the brick stops absorbing water, you can scrape off the amount of coco peat required.
