Great alternative to soil
17 April 2017
Cocopeat is a great alternative to soil to grow plants in small spaces. I use it for my kitchen garden, mixing it with Vermicompost to make potting mix. Trust basket's cocopeat is just as good as any I've used. I'm not sure if it expands to 75 litres but does expand to a substantial volume, I filled 10 medium sized pots with it. It's fun to see it expand after adding water. Once expanded its fine in consistency and light in weight, provided good aeration to roots allowing the roots to expand easily.
It's important to remember that cocopeat on its own is a relatively inert growing medium and doesn't provide many nutrients to the plants, for this reason one must always add nutrients in the form of Vermicompost to prepare potting mix.
Cons: Shipping cost can be lower, doesn't make much sense to pay more than half the amount of the product only for shipping.
