Pelemix’s coir – cocopeat is an excellent media for roots development. Therefore the volume of substrates / growing media is relatively small (compared to soil and other soilless medias).
Since the volume is relatively small it is very important for roots to develop within all the media equally.
The easiest way to achieve uniformity in the coir – cocopeat is by applying water in a way that water / air ratio and the E.C. levels in the coir- cocopeat will be the same.
Pelemix strongly recommends on applying a slow flow rate dripper every 20 cm (or less).
