Produce seedlings with stronger more fibrous roots
Cocopeat (Galuku Coir)'s light weight, high Water Holding Capacity and high Air Filled Porosity is advantageous for producing seedlings with strong and fibrous roots.
Higher germination rates
Cocopeat (Galuku Coir)'s ability to re-wet easily makes it the perfect medium to use in seedling trays and tubes. Germination rates are very high when seedlings are grown in mixes containing Cocopeat (Galuku Coir).
Cocopeat (Galuku Coir) is the ideal medium for all seed raising applications. Unlike sphagnum peat, Cocopeat (Galuku Coir) has the ability to re-wet very easily. This makes it the perfect medium to use in plug and cell production for vegetable and flower seed raising, and for tubestock production of outdoor seedlings.
HOW TO USE COCOPEAT FOR SEED RAISING
Adding 50% by volume of Cocopeat (Galuku Coir) to most seedling mixes will improve water holding, aeration, and nutrition. Add Gypsum at about 2 grams to every 100 litres of Cocopeat (Galuku Coir) used. Do not use lime. Feed normally once seeds have germinated.
