Why use coco peat?

Cocopeat is a natural fiber made from the husks of coconuts. Coco-peat, a 100 percent natural growing medium, is a byproduct of extracting coconut fiber from husks. This sun-dried cocopeat is used to manufacture a range of goods, including cocopeat blocks, briquettes, tablets, and more. The word “coco soil” refers to loose coco peat. Because coco soil is porous and well-drained, it helps plants establish strong roots, making it an excellent hydroponics growing medium. It is a completely organic, natural, and biodegradable substance that was once a byproduct of the Coconut Fibre Extraction process but is no more. It is now produced as a byproduct of the extraction of coconut fiber.

Coco peat aids in the development of a workable substitute for flower production and seedling propagation. Additionally, it is for use in soil amendment and hydroponic cultivation. On seedling trays, you may grow a variety of popular commercial food crops, including tomatoes, cabbage, onions, peppers, and fruit trees. There are a lot more. Among the fruits and vegetables that may be observed growing spontaneously in open fields are watermelons, cucumbers, squash, and butternuts. It will work more effectively if you clean and treat it. This is caused by the presence of soluble salts, specifically sodium, which cause root hair burning and poor germination.

what is the cost of coco peat?

At Aqua Hub, we have a variety of cocopeat, from very fine to rough. Because it makes root penetration easier, fine cocopeat is mostly used for seedling propagation. For planting mature crops, rough cocopeat with more than 50% fiber is suitable. There are 20kg sacks or 5kg blocks of coco peat available. However, we are permitted to sell any amount starting at 1 kilogram. Prices for cocopeat are based on quantity and whether it has been processed.

Therefore, choosing the right medium for plant growth is essential. While many people prefer potting soil, more and more eco-conscious gardeners are learning about the advantages of coco peat. The use of this drug has a lot of benefits. Because you don’t need much of it, a little bit goes a long way, and it is renewable. Additionally, a lot of gardeners have observed that coco peat absorbs water quickly. There is less chance of overwatering or underwatering your plants because of its big capacity.

How to use coco peat

Before utilizing coco peat, you must first prepare it. If the excess salt in the media is not removed, poor germination will ensue. After soaking the cocopeat in water to hydrate it, calcium nitrate, which can substitute sodium salts, is added to the mix. This process, which takes around 24 hours, can eliminate the salts. It is then thoroughly washed. Finally, the water is drained and the EC is tested to ensure that it is within the pH range. A pH of 6.5 is ideal for seedlings. The medium is then grown in seedling trays or pots. The seeds are then planted one by one in a shade net or greenhouse.
