When hydrated with water, CocoTek rapidly expands, which saves you time and effort. GH CocoTek growing media can be used exclusively by them selves or mixed with expanded clay pebbles, perlite or topsoil.
CocoTek is naturally free of bacteria, plant disease, fungal spores, weeds, seeds, and pathogens.
How is CocoTek used?
Coco Coir has a high retention capacity, irrigation must therefore be adapted to it. Furthermore, in the case of long term use in a pot, the fibre tends to deteriorate and settle. To avoid these issues, it is often useful to mix it with a more draining material such as clay pebbles, perlite or volcanic rock.
