Coir comes compressed into bricks which makes for easy, convenient storage:
¤ 1 250g brick = 1/2 gallon when expanded
¤ 1 650g brick = 2 1/2 gallons when expanded
¤ 1 5k block = 20 gallons when expanded
¤ Add water and soak for about an hour before using.
¤ A fully-hydrated brick can hold 8 to 10 times its volume in water.
¤ The final volume of the expanded Coir depends on the amount of water used to constitute it.
Growing medium: add 1 part Coir to 2 parts soil or potting mix containing compost.
¤ Sandy soils growing medium: Coir helps to keep nutrients and moisture close to plant roots instead of washing away.
¤ Clay soils growing medium: Coir helps to break up hard-packed earth and move nutrients and moisture through the soil.
¤ Seed starting growing medium: Coir creates a perfect environment for starting seeds and cuttings by maintaining a consistent level of moisture and air.
