Cocopeat block (coco pith) is the powder from coconut coir that have been pressed and shaped into cubes or blocks bar. People often use cocopeat block as the planting media as an alternative to soil. Cocopeat has similar texture to soil, but it has 10 times better in capability to store and retain water. Hence, cocopeat is considered as a better choice than soil as planting media, especially in hydroponic industry. As the water can be retained better, the plant and its root will not be easily dried out. Furthermore, cocopeat can be degraded well in soil which make it eco-friendly. Cocopeat is also a great oxygenation properties, which is important to the health and development of the roots of the plant. It has slightly acidic pH level, which is great for alkaline garden soils.
