I've been using coco peat quite a while & its good in that it mainly improves the structure of clayish soils & adds some retentive capabilities to sandy soils. & its a cheaper alternative than things like perlite etc… which are more expensive & often industrial grade & not agricultural.

its not something so easily available abroad & don't think it would be this cheap there : )

So, to my thinking its something nice we have here ; P

Its also more sterile than garden soil & so it is good for seedstarting & stuff where i mix it with vermicompost or sand etc.

here in bombay, last i bought it was Rs 20 per kg (dried block or wet) – the dried cocopeat were 5 kg blocks

 

So i use it in various combinations, also depending on the plant am using. usually with redsoil sand, manure  etc. Manure also improves the structure of the soil & i've found these things very helpful since just using red, or some clayish soil, will strangle or damage many plants.. (wet or dry)

Hello,

 

I use soil as medium. Can I mix coco peat to this for raising plants? I normally use organic compost (decomposed cow dung - from the nearby cowshed) mixed with soil. Will my plants be healthy if I mix coco peat?

 

Regards

Jay

Will your plants be healthy because of cocopeat. yes and no. Cocopeat, when mixed with soil adds texture, increases porosity and makes the medium loose. Plants can root easily in that medium. That way yes it helps. But it doesn't have any nutrients in itself.
