    #1586851 - 05/29/03 12:43 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

How much water do i need to add to the cocoa coir to make it expand? How much total coir, vermiculite, and water should I use?

thanks for the link, but that doesnt really answer my question. All it says is add more water than is needed to expand the coir. I need to know how much water is needed to expand...and how much more is needed in addition to that.

Mikey,

My dawg uses that tek. Put the coir in a bowl. Pour hella water on it. Package reccomends to wait 30 minutes. This dawg has found is a good idea, bricks sometimes differ on how compact they are packed. Dawg had one the other day that took forever to re-hydrate. So basically what dawg does is soak that shit let it expand. Then mix your verm. Check for field capacity, once finished nuke.Then Dawg (dont take this as truth, it's an experiment that has worked well) Puts that shit in the freezer for an hour.The freezer is set to the max, btw. When my dawg paws ir out it has nice ice crystals all over it. Sprays down the lab. puts on clean gloves, and pours water over it. Then squeezes the shit in a good environment to get the capacity of moisture he is happy with. Then applies the layer to the casing, hope this is more helpful....

> I need to know how much water is needed to expand

For a standard brick weighing 700 gram you need around 2 liters of water.
