Coco Peat is derived from the coconut industry and is a 100% natural product and washed (not buffered). This product is however unwashed, so has a higher salt content (High EC) than the washed type. Also not buffered.. Works perfectly for most plants without being washed.
It is a favourite grow medium amongst aquaponics and hydroponics enthusiasts and commercial farmers.
The 5Kg 100% Block constitutes of fine coir fibers, which when re-hydrated expands to around 60-70 litres of grow media. That which is not used, will dry up and can then be reused again at a later stage.
The 5Kg Blocks can vary in weight by 300-400grams.
Coco peat is sterilized and is pH inhert, making it the ideal grow media for aquaponics and hydroponics. It has excellent moisture retention and drainage properties.
