Cocopeat is a natural fibre derived as a by-product in the process of fibre extraction from the husk of the coconut. The standard specifications for quality-proofed cocopeat are: Density less than 0.1, EC less than 0.5mS/cm, pH range 5.9-6.5, Water retention 8 times, Pore space 90%, Expanadability 6 times of the compressed volume. It a 100% natural growing medium.
It is the total amount of mobile charged ions (minerals, salts & metals) dissolved in a given volume of water. TDS is expressed in parts per million (PPM) eg: 1ppm is 1mg of a mineral in 1million grams of water. TDS readings helps growers know the density of nutrients in their solution.
