Bed-a-beast Coco Coir?
    #1020960 - 11/04/02 02:38 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

I read through some posts that mentioned Bed-A-Beast as Coco-Coir--- Has anyone used this before? On the package it doesn't say anything about coco coir/coconut, etc- just making sure I got the right stuff.

The stuff I just bought is a brick-sized, brick-shaped piece of "coconut fibre" that expands 8-9 times its volume with the addition of water. On the package it also says that it is an alternative to peat. If it says nothing about coconuts then it probably isn't the stuff, but if it says it can be used in place of peat, then maybe you should give it a try.

It comes in brick... It says "BED-A-BEAST" bedding makes as excellent soil additive for gardening and can be used as a replacement for Sphagnum Peat Moss" -- HMM???

odd that it doesn't say anything about coconuts.. But if it's a substitute for peat moss, then you may as well try it out. What's its PH? Oh, and on the back of my label it has all kinds of info about it, but to be able to see that you gotta open up the package, maybe yours has the same. I say give 'er a go.

I might just go get the one at petsmart that says "COCONUT" instead of bothering with this.. I was hoping someone might have used it though...

Bed-a-Beast is coco-coir. Works great.  :smile:
