ECOPEAT® - Small Plank™
An organic potting medium made from natural coconut husk
fibers, this all natural material is not only ideal for
hydroponics and mixed media cultivation, but is an excellent
soil conditioner as well. This product was specially
developed for container growing where 8 Planks of 36 CM X
17.5 CM X 8.5 CM are bundled, bagged and wrapped with a
natural coir rope for ease of carrying.
Each Ecopeat small plank weighing approximately 1.9 - 2.0
Kilos when added to 10 litres of water, expands to over 30
Litres of premium grade potting medium.
Ecopeat loosens clay soils and is highly porous which aids
strong root development. It has a soft fibrous texture that
does not crust when dry.
The pH of Ecopeat ranges between 5.9 and 6.3, which maes it
an ideal soil amendment. Ecopeat products are free from weed
seeds or diseases, and can be used as a peat moss
replacement in potting mixes or alone as a potting medium.
Ecopeat small planks are made from a blend of old Cocopeat,
treated Cocopeat and washed Cocopeat sifted <2 mm mesh and
<16 mm mesh. The batch mix is double blended for homogeneous
output, colour and analytical properties. The structure is
moderately robust as opposed to the coffee ground
consistency of competitive products, which results in a much
higher air to water ratio, extremely important for healthy
root development. This promotes stronger root systems with
better nutrient absorption resulting in excellent growth and
Ecopeat small planks are entirely organic and manufactured
from a renewable resource; the coconut husk. The material is
pre-washed and pH balanced so you can begin planting
immediately. The fibrous material settles fast soon after
irrigation and has medium drainage characteristics. The
medium always stays extremely airy. It's structure holds up
throughout cultivation, with minimal settling.
To use, simply fill a bucket with 10 to 12 litres of water,
and place one slab in the bucket for ˝ hour. The slab will
rapidly disintegrate into pile of be ready to use medium. It
can be used as a single growing medium orin a blend with
soil, perlite, grow rocks or potting soil to make the final
growing mix to suit your crop.
Each package contains 8 Slabs, which equals about 250 litres
of hydrated medium. It is recommended that you Blend your
soluble fertilizer into the hydration solution and start
