How different is Coco Peat from Soil?

The difference between cocopeat and soil is the water absorption, compactness, colour and PH rate.

Unlike soil, cocopeat is loose and allows maximum airflow in between its particles. It also has a PH of 5.5 to 6.5 compared to that of soil which varies as per the soil type.

The substance is purely organic and has no nutrients thus does not support weed growth. However, it also has a higher capacity to hold nutrients.

How to Make Coco Peat Ready to Use

Raw cocopeat dust is not conducive for direct use in the propagation of crops. It has salts and sand content which need to be removed as they make them unsuitable for crop growth.

Steps to Prepare cocopeat include;

  1. Soaking the cocopeat in water. You need a bucket or tank to soak the cocopeat blocks.
  2. Pour water inside the tank and soak cocopeat dust. The ratio of water to cocopeat should be 1: 5. Crush the cocopeat and insert it inside the tank.
  3. Wash the cocopeat thoroughly and remove the fibres or particles.
  4. Add calcium nitrate to the tank to remove excess nitrogen and calcium salts.
  5. Rinse the mixture 5-7 times and drain water.
  6. Place the moist resulting cocopeat on trays and proceed to plant seeds.
