Coconut peat can be used to make your own potting mix or purchased as a ready-made mix. You can customize the mix to fit your individual needs. For example, if you have plants that require a lot of water, you can add more water-retaining ingredients to the mix. Also, if you have plants that need well-draining soil, you can add more drainage enhancing ingredients. Buying a ready-made mix can also be convenient, but it may not be right for your specific gardening needs. Therefore, read the product descriptions carefully.
Coconut peat is an excellent growing medium for both indoor and outdoor plants. When growing indoor plants with coco peat, you will need to water more often than plants grown with other types of media. If you are growing plants outdoors in coco peat, you will need less watering than growing in soil. This is because coco peat retains moisture better than soil.
