Cocopeat is beginning to grow in popularity among gardeners and farmers seeking an alternative to non-renewable peat moss. Cocopeat has many benefits as a growing medium including significant amounts of phosphorous and potassium, a micro-sponge effect that improves soil’s water holding capacity, and an optimum pH range of 5.8 – 6.4.
Cocopeat often comes in compressed bricks or disks that need to be soaked in water before use. Once re-hydrated, the Cocopeat can be added to potting mixes or used to amend garden soil. Cocopeat greatly improves soil water retention and aeration, helps to create a healthy environment for root growth. It is biodegradable and environment friendly. It is ideal for various types of horticultural and hydroponic applications. The substrate is easy to use, low weight, weed-free and reusable.
