A block of compressed coconut results into 10 liters of ready-to-use coconut substrate after adding 3 liters of water to it.
Furthermore, its volume will increase approximately tenfold. As a result of its initial size, the substrate is fairly easy to transport. Compared to regular peatsubstrate (potting soil) coconut substrate has a great number of benefits, which are: - it is easy to use - it has the low EC value of < 0.4 mS/cm - it has the ideal pH value of 5.8 - it stimulates a perfect root development - the coco substrate is not compact which makes it easy to drain - it is a light product: 85 kg/m3 (peatsubstrate weighs 125 kg/m3) - coconut has a good and swift waterabsorption coconut substrate can be re-used - the use of coconut often leads to a higher yield compared to other substrates
This substrate is thoroughly washed out and treated for diseases, vermin and weeds. Moreover, it contains special additives in order to assure a TOP result
1 Fill a bucket or tank with 3 liters of water
2 Let one block of BN Coco-brick swell up in the water
3 Stir the mixture thoroughly after about 30 minutes and you will have approximately 10 liters of ready-to-use substrate.
