Coco substrates have the ability to absorb large amounts of water, and at the same time they are very breathable. They are also characterized by drainage properties. Coconut is also extremely durable, and the substrates made of it are not too expensive. Moreover, they are fully biodegradable. Other advantages include the neutral pH of the coco substrate, which can be easily adjusted according to your needs. You can use it for up to three seasons! However, it is worth remembering that coconut substrates do not offer any nutrients to plants, which is why breeders use special fertilizers. On the other hand, they contain useful mushrooms from the Trichoderma family that protect crops from other harmful fungi.
