I use cocopeat + vermicompost in the ratio of 1:1 ("yes suggested by you, GG and my plants love it)
Can cocopeat + vermicompost be reused again and again after growing veggies and flowers?
Or do I have to add vermicompost each time I grow something new? Can the same cocopeat be reused?
Since vermicompost is organic manure, do I still have to fertilize with NPK?
Thanks in advance

Sorry for the delay. Vermicompost, when added to cocopeat adds some nutrients which depletes as plant grows. At the end of the cycle, it might have lost all or part of its nutrients. It is always good to add vermicompost each time you plant something new.
As for cocopeat, you can use it again and again. After the plant is done, remove the roots of the old plant and use that cocopeat or let that cocopeat sit for a while till those roots decompose. Vermicompost supplies some NPK but it is not guaranteed in what proportions. It is good to use some NPK every week. again it depends on the quality of vermicompost.
