How to Prepare

Coco Peat requires some preparation. Users should note that Coco Peat comes in a compressed form that expands up to 5 or 6 times in size after it is prepared.

-Place in a large container (you can break the brick in parts if needed).

-Add around 15 liters of water for each block (warm water works fastest).

-Let the peat stay in the water until it becomes loose and absorbs the water.

-Break up any remaining lumps and stir, add more water if the peat still looks dry.

– Once it has gained enough moisture and becomes loose, it is ready for use.

How to use

In pots

Coco peat can be used as a soilless growing medium or for aqua-culture environments.

-After you have done the necessary preparation above, add the prepared coco peat to your planter leaving 3cm distance between the edge and the peat.

-Fertilizers will be needed to sustain the plant in the long run. Choose a suitable fertilizer for your plant of choice.

-You can mix the cocopeat with other growing media such as perlite, vermiculite and peat moss in different ratios according to need.
