Endlessly Green microbial cocopeat is a high-quality, well-processed product. Low on EC (salt content), high on absorption capacity and performance. When this carbon-rich cocopeat is treated with Excelerator Compost Culture, the process starts instantly when mixed with organic waste. It helps you tackle bad odour and lack of aeration by absorbing excess moisture and creating air pockets.
Cocopeat is a nutritious bulking material that enhances the quality of your compost batch after batch. Go ahead and add dry leaves, if you have, to make it even more nutritious.
Each brick weighs about 5 kg and expands up to five times or more, and yields 22-25 kg after expansion. Similarly, each brick weighs about 650 gm and yields about 3 kg of cocopeat after expansion.
The process: Soak the block/brick in suggested quantity of water. Let it soak for 10-12 hours. The brick loosens and breaks down on its own. Just crumble it manually and mix the microbes thoroughly. Store it in a box or a bag.
Tip: Mix Excelerator well with organic waste and cocopeat. This works faster than layering method.
It contains all the qualities as the blocks but is in a ready-to-use powder form. Add one kg of this powder to three kg of kitchen waste to bring out high-quality compost in a hassle-free manner. The rich carbon content in the cocopeat gets combined with the nitrogen content in the food waste. The microbes already present in the cocopeat start acting on the pile instantly, thereby speeding up the process. What comes out eventually is a nice-smelling compost which is a wonderful soil health enhancer.
Composting process: Spread a layer of cocopeat at the bottom of your composter and then a layer of kitchen waste mixed with Excelerator. Repeat the process until the composter is almost full. Leave a couple of inches on top. Top it off with a layer of microbial cocopeat or dry leaves, or both. This prevents fruit flies from accessing the food waste layer.
The microbes begin to act on the food waste instantly and turn it into super-rich manure. Harvest it, sieve it if you need be and then let it cure for some more time. It is now ready to nourish your plants!
