Zoo Med’s Eco Earth Coconut Fiber Substrate is an eco-friendly product made from the husks of coconuts and can be safely composted or recycled into potted plants or gardens. It can be used as a bedding or substrate on its own or blended with other substrates.
Each compressed brick of Eco Earth will expand up to 8 times its size making approximately 7-8 Liters (7-8.5 QT) of loose substrate. Simply mix one 650 gm brick with 3-4 Liters of water in a bucket. Allow 20-30 minutes for the brick to fully expand. Use less water or allow to dry out if using with animals that require a dryer substrate.
You can use Eco Earth Coconut Fiber to make an Orchid Potting Mix, an Aroid Potting Mix or a Hoya Potting mix. By mixing various ratios or combinations of Eco Earth Coconut Fiber (Coco Coir), ReptiBark (Fir bark), BioChar (Hortcultural Charcoal), Tuface, Perlite, and some Sphagnum Moss you can create a suitable potting mix tailored to your individuals plant’s needs.
