COMPRESSED BRIQUETTES - COCOPEAT GROWING MEDIA
Briquettes are the ultimate environmentally friendly way to buy growing media. When you follow the instructions closely, within15 minutes or so, your briquette is fully expanded, broken up and ready to use. If you put too much water into the bowl, don't worry - just leave it longer to soak up - even overnight. Then just pour away any excess water that remains. The secret is to break up any lumps, then fluff up the re-hydrated briquette to introduce air. If you're not impatient, you will get your full 7 litres.
This product is suitable as an organic peat substitute. It contains no nutrients or chemicals. However it does contain natural rooting hormones which help young plants get established faster than in ordinary growing media. Unlike garden peat, if cocopeat is allowed to dry out, (though it's best not to allow that to happen), it will readily re-wet.
Cocopeat is from sources renewed year round by Mother Nature. No trees are felled and no pesticides are used in coconut culture.
Full re-hydration instructions are illustrated on the label.
Maximum re-hydration volume of any cocopeat briquette is determined by the amount of effort that goes into the re-hydration process. If you are prepared to wait until the briquette is thoroughly soaked with warm water -even overnight if possible, then break it up with your fingers, crumbling the media into fine particles - and finally lifting it up and letting it drop slowly through your fingers to introduce air, you will achieve the higher volume of around 9 litres. But from experience, most users are keen to get on with using the material and short-cut the process. In this case the re-hydration volume will be less.
