The main benefit of loose coir is it is ready to go, no heavy bricks, no buckets which is ideal if you only need to add smaller amounts & it is instant just add water and mix, can be used then straight away
Now 200 grams will make approx 1 kilo of usable coir, this is based on adding two pints of water as you will see in the photo
It comes supplied in a clip seal bag just add your water and can be used within minutes, the rest can be kept in the grip seal bag, a brilliant idea when you need a small amount
But I like a fair amount of moisture in the mix if you prefer less just add less water start with a pint to 200 grams and see how you go
