BEST COIR FORMULA?
    #11213069 - 10/09/09 05:02 AM (8 years, 14 days ago)

i found good formulas using coffee, gypsum, etc.  but i cant find them again.  so basically i just want to know what you guys use for formulas that work.  i have been using straight coir which has been very good to me but i think i would be better off mixing in some other ingredients.  any information would be greatly appreciated.

After a quick search I found one promising link. Also there were well over 500 results for a "coir spawn" or "coir tek" search...

Give the search a shot, and be amazed! :smile:

Try not to bump your own threads within 4 hours... Some mods may kick you in the balls for it.

Just a friendly reminder from Rooster Cogburn. :cheers:

Not trying to be a dick, but an excuse as to why you bumped wasn't needed... A simple "thanks, I won't bump threads anymore" would have been better.

I somehow figured out how to do all my bulk substrate stuff by simply searching the site. Coir+Coffee+Verm+Gypsum+2tbsp of veg oil=Winning mixture. Please use the search function.

Oh, and LMAO over this ridiculousness that's going on.

NO BS ANSWER.

This has been known to work out pretty nicely.

1 brick coir (8qt)
1 quart coffee grounds
1 quart fine vermiculite
1 quart gypsum

edit: You could also mix in some composted manure and some straw, 1-2 quarts of each.  I just kinda mix the stuff up all willy nilly until it looks good.  The manure for added nutrients, and the straw for some added fluffiness for easier colonization,

Happy fruitings!

This is BS because he could have found this by UTFSE. Anyway, I use basically the same formula, little more verm. little less gypsum and coffee plus 2tbsp. of veg oil.

I would use less gypsum because when I used a full quart of gypsum it made my substrate like a block of concrete.

I use

1 brick coir
1 quart verm
1 cup spent coffee grounds
1 cup gypsum
1 gal water

pasteurize, cool, mix with 6 qts spawn.

check it out.

1 quart cpoo compost
2 cups gypsum
mixed with 2 quart of spawn...

Yea, it was pretty thick, I think that's why I cut it with the straw.

Just about the amounts I use, like I was saying, less gypsum and coffee than coir. Add 2tbsp. of the veg oil to the water that you put the brick of coir in  and you got a winner. I only use 3-4 quarts of spawn though, I don't see the need to use a 1:2 ratio, 1:3 or even 1:4 is just fine, not knocking the way you do it though, do your thing.

I really couldn't tell you, but I have seen some TC's use it and have found that my Myc. rips through my sub. don't know if it's anything to do with the veg oil but I'm not changing my mix anytime soon.

Just found posts by Agar and Nibin that they both reccomend using some kind of oils including veg and peanut for use in bulk subs.
