This block of compressed coconut results into 10 liters of ready-to-use coconut substrate after adding 3 liters of water to it. Furthermore, its volume will increase approximately tenfold. As a result of its initial size, the substrate is fairly easy to transport. Compared to regular peatsubstrate (potting soil) coconut substrate has a great number of benefits, which are: - it is easy to use - it has the low EC value of < 0.4 mS/cm - it has the ideal pH value of 5.8 - it stimulates a perfect root development - the coco substrate is not compact which makes it easy to drain - it is a light product: 85 kg/m3 (peat substrate weighs 125 kg/m3) - coconut has a good and swift water absorption - coconut substrate can be re-used - the use of coconut often leads to a higher yield compared to other substrates This substrate is thoroughly washed out and treated for diseases, vermin and weeds. Moreover, it contains special additives in order to assure a TOP result. INSTRUCTIONS: 1 Fill a bucket or tank with 3 liters of water 2 Let one block of BN Coco-brick swell up in the water 3 Stir the mixture thoroughly after about 30 minutes and you will have approximately 10 liters of ready-to-use substrate. The BN Coco-Bricks are packed per 6 pieces in a carrier bag or per 24 pieces in a box. Use the special BN Coco Nova fertilization scheme during the growth in order to properly adminster nutrients and minerals.
