The coconut brick consists of the fibers of the coconut shell. One brick (650g) creates 8 liters of finished substrate. It is ideally suited as potting soil, additional starting substrate and as a structuring material in the worm bin. It is also suitable for mixing with finished worm humus.
- 3 blocks are recommended for the start of a WormBag
- 1 block is perfect for spicing up a long-running worm bin
- The fibers of the coconut shell are pH-neutral and low in nutrients – this means that the worms and plants will not be harmed, which is often the case with incomplete compost.
- Coconut stores an enormous amount of water and therefore the compost worms love the substrate.
- The texture of the fibers leads to good aeration of the substrate.
- Starting substrate for the WormBag or any other worm bin (as a supplement or alternative to cardboard scraps
- Refreshing or regenarting a worm box that has been running for a long time in order to create optimal conditions (recommended from the 2nd harvest). Coconut stores an enormous amount of water and the compost worms love that. The texture of the fiber leads to good ventilation of the semi-finished compost and has a balancing effect on difficulties with moisture.
- Ideal food for a longer holiday (1 block for the WormBag, 1/2 block for smaller composting solutions)
- Soil for growing and sowing.
- Place the block in a 10 liter bucket and add a maximum of 4 liters of water.
- The humus is ready to use after 15-20 minutes.
- Tip: If you only want to use half of a coconut block, use only 2 liters of water, hold the block for about 5 minutes halfway into the water and rub the substrate off the block. Keep the rest until the next harvest.
