Coco peat is an ideal growing medium for production of young plants.

Coco peat is made of coco pith that is produced from the husk that grows around the hard coconut. The husk contains both fibers and fine materials. By separating most of the fibers from the fine materials, the so-called coco pith, is collected.

Blocks should never be dipped into water but irrigated by a dripping tap, watering can or irrigation, to slowly expand in volume. With this method optimum results are achieved. Farmers need to add fertilizers to this product, it is therefore more used by the Professional farmer who knows the nutrient requirement of his crop.
