Cocopeat Blocks – 5 Kg
Cocopeat blocks are composed of the inner fibers of coconuts. Cocopeat is naturally anti-fungal, making it a key component in healthy potting mixes. Not only does it provide air to the soil, but its loose structure makes it ideal for aiding in seed germination and root development. These blocks are lightweight and allow for great drainage, while also maintaining moisture for longer periods of time without becoming soggy. Cocopeat is an excellent medium for creating and cultivating soil mixes.
Cocopeat is a byproduct of the coconut industry and is used as a soil amendment and a soil conditioner in agriculture and horticulture. It is composed of the coir dust from the husks of coconuts and is a sustainable, eco-friendly and renewable resource.
Cocopeat has several advantages over other soil amendments, such as peat moss and vermiculite, as it is more drought tolerant, more alkaline, more resilient and better suited to areas with high water tables.
Cocopeat is a great soil conditioner as it helps to retain moisture, improve the aeration of soils, improve the soil structure and helps to provide nutrients to plants. It also helps to reduce the use of chemical fertilizers as it holds onto and releases nutrients slowly, providing plants with a steady supply of nutrients.
Another benefit of cocopeat is that it can help reduce water usage by up to 50%. This is because it holds onto water for longer periods of time, meaning less water is needed for plant growth.
Lastly, cocopeat is environmentally friendly and renewable.
