Hydroponic growing with stable pH valueFind a store
Cocos Brix makes the ideal substrate for growers who prefer to use a pure and natural product. Cocos Brix has been treated with calcium and flushed with clean water afterwards, therefore creating a very stable substrate which does not contain any fertilisers. It is particularly suitable for fast growing plants. Furthermore, Cocos Brix have a high water retention capacity so you can give less water. Cocos Brix meets the most stringent quality standards and is awarded the RHP Certificate for Consumers. It can be re-used as a soil improver. Cocos Brix produces the highest yields in combination with Plagron Cocos A&B and the additives from Plagron.
Immerse 1 piece of Cocos Brix in a bucket containing 4 litres (1.05 gal) of water and regularly squeeze the brick. After 20 - 30 minutes you will have about 7 litres (1.85 gal) of ready to use cocos substrate. Add nutrients each time you water and set the pH to 5.5.

Cocos Brix is available in one package containing 6 pieces.
A Cocos Brix package consists of six pressed blocks of coconut substrate, no bigger than a handbag. One block of Cocos Brix produces seven liters of substrate. A complete package is therefore good for no less than 42 liters (!) of coconut substrate.
Cocos Brix is delivered in pressed block forms, which makes it manageable and therefore easy to transport. This is a great advantage over bags. You can easily prepare the coconut blocks for use by soaking them in a bucket of water.
Because Cocos Brix is fully flushed and buffered, a low EC value is guaranteed. Therefore, it is a given that you are growing with a coconut substrate that is clean and pure. All unwanted salts have been flushed out during several buffering steps. This prevents your plant from having problems absorbing nutrients during growth and flowering. When you give your plant Cocos A & B, in the right dosage, it can be absorbed by the plant properly. Because of the low initial EC-value, a calcium deficiency is prevented.

The high quality of the Plagron coconut substrates is confirmed by the RHP quality mark. The RHP quality mark guarantees the correct quality requirements and sustainable origin of the substrate. For example, Cocos Brix has excellent water retention and is free of sand, weeds and pathogens. This means that Plagron coconut substrates are clean and pure, and you can use them safely without risk to your grow.
