Remove the wrapping film from a brick, place the brick upright in the ziplock bag, add a liter of water, seal the bag and leave to stand until it has swelled completely. If there are still small lumps in the mass, you can break them up in the sealed bag.
By closing the bag, no moisture can escape and accidental knocking over has no consequences.
Our coconut fibers are a natural product, the size of the bricks and the substrate volume are subject to fluctuations - however, the amount of coconut fibers always fits into the bag.
Preparing with warm or hot water accelerates the swelling process and results in a larger substrate volume, cold water naturally also works. Depending on the water temperature, swelling can take between 30 minutes and 12 hours. Since the swollen substrate can be stored in the sealed bag for a long time without impairing the quality, you can prepare the coconut fibers at any time.
Pour the amount of substrate in the bag into the solids container of your Nature's Head® or OGO® composting toilet, depending on the manufacturer's instructions (also suitable for other composting toilets). The coir level in the Nature's Head or OGO should be just below the agitator. If you use it regularly with more than 3 people or if you have diarrhea, you should fill in a little more coconut fiber to reliably bind moisture.
You can roll up the bag and reuse it many times.
