Hello everyone. Someone used coconut briquettes as a soil baking powder. Maybe there are some subtleties? Thanks in advance.
I use. I add vermiculite to the soil for deoxidation of the soil.
I also bought vermiculite. Tell me in what quantities to add.
VERMICULITE is a natural mineral, for example, it is mined in Chelyabinsk. Vermiculite contains magnesium oxide, iron oxide, iron oxide, alumina, silicon dioxide and water. When heated to 900-1000 degrees, vermiculite swells and increases in volume by 15-20 times. In this form, it acquires a high coefficient of water absorption (100 g of vermiculite absorbs 400-500 ml of water). If vermiculite is added to the soil, it is saturated with air. Vermiculite does not decompose, so putrefactive bacteria do not settle on it. Vermiculite neutralizes soil acidity, but at the same time it is neutral to the effects of alkalis and acids. It turns out that this is a safe soil conditioner - it prevents the development of mold, cracking and soil compaction, while not leaving the lower layers, but remains at the place of application. Plus plants receive trace elements. It can be used as mulch to shelter plants and store tubers and rhizomes. COCONUT SUBSTRATE - Pure organic material that does not contain harmful trace elements, pests and diseases. These are crushed coconut shell fibers, which are subsequently pressed into blocks under high pressure. In stores sold in the form of briquettes of various sizes. If you soak a coconut brick, you get 6-8 liters of the finished substrate (coco soil). The substrate has a high moisture capacity, retains moisture 7 times its weight and breathability. It has hydrophobicity, i.e., willingly gives moisture and nutrients to plants. It is quite resistant to decomposition, it will work in the soil for more than 5 years. Coco soil contains macro and microelements. There is evidence that in addition to nutrients, coconut may contain an excess of chlorine, potassium and sodium, which will lead to salinization of the soil. Indeed, coconut palms grow in conditions where the air is saturated with salts from the ocean. Not all manufacturers wash the substrate. If you do not put it into the soil a lot, then you should not be afraid, but if you use it in its pure form, it is better to play it safe. Soak (pour) the coconut substrate for a day, so that there is plenty of water, and then drain the water. Neutralize unwanted elements can be acidified with water, or by adding a little acid peat to the coco soil. These loosening components will create ideal conditions for the development of the root system of our seedlings.
Thank you very much for a very informative answer!
Thanks for the useful information
Olga! The briquette needs about 2 liters of water - it will increase to 7 liters. Correctly said above. They can loosen the soil for seedlings, as well as use for planting carrots and other vegetables. Spill the densified groove well with water and spread the seeds on a damp surface and cover it with a moist coconut substrate, then press it with your palm so that there is no space between the seeds and the soil. The substrate dries on top, and inside is moist.
And also rows with landings will be clearly visible.
Always dive seedlings into the soil mixed with coconut substrate 50% to 50% I really like it. Good breathability for roots.
Thank you very much, I also thought about carrots, which is good to fall asleep. Will keep moisture.
Is biohumus and bio-soil not the same thing?
The second year I pour them snails, petunia, strawberries, really like
