Hi,

 

I recently got a 1kg block of coco peat and put the whole thing in water and now I've almost 3/4th bucket full of moist coco peat. I've used as much as I could. Now what do I do with the rest of it?

 

Can I dry it and use it again?.. I can't compress it but the dry peat I can put in plastic bags and store. Is this the correct way?

 

Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks,

Sushma

Hi,

 

Yes, you can store it in a bag and reuse it. I have done that successfully in the past.

 

Try and dry it using sunlight before storing.
