How U-GRO Coco Brick Works
U-Gro compressed coco is made from high quality coconut fibre which is a great alternative to using soil. The compressed coco brick turns into top quality coco grow-medium. Because the coco brick is dry and compressed, it is light and easy to transport and store. The coco is washed and buffered before packing to ensure that is a stable, quality product. U-Gro Coco provides an environmentally safe and economical growing medium which holds lots of water yet allows air to move freely through it providing oxygen for the roots. U-Gro Coco is free of soil-borne diseases and naturally contains trichoderma – a friendly strain of fungus that actually helps protect roots from root-rot. U-Gro Coco is a completely natural product and it can be easily disposed of safely such as in compost or on an outside garden bed.
How to Use Coco Bricks
The coco used in the U-Gro Compressed Coco Brick is washed before being compressed and packed. To use, open out the bag and place it into a large container. Gradually add water/nutrient solution which has been pH adjusted to 5.5 - 6.5, giving it a good stir as you go. The coco block will gradually soak up the water and expand.
When using the coco, take care not to add any peroxide or bleach products as this will kill or severely inhibit the trichoderma fungi.
