You can also buy it at garden centers much more cheaply.  It's used as an
ingredient in potting soil mixtures, in place of peat moss.

At one time, there were some problems with these bricks because they were
processed with sea water and contained too much salt.  Just in case, i
rehydrate them with extra water, pour it off, refill the bucket with fresh
water, stir well and pour it off again.  This should remove salt if there
is any.
