If I don't need the entire brick at one time, can I cut off how much I need before hydrating, or hydrate the entire brick and store the leftover loose product (after letting it fully air dry, I assume)? If the latter, for how long in what container can I store it?
The easiest thing to do is either cut off a piece of the coco brick or just hydrate a potion of it and tear off what you need.
Are these bricks 1/3 cu ft before or after they are hydrated?
The coco coir expands to 1/3 cubic foot after hydration.
