Anyone Use Eco Earth Loose Coconut Fiber Substrate ?
    #11390065 - 11/05/09 12:41 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

This stuff is loose coir in theory, but my mycelia dont seem to like it.  Does anyone have experience using this stuff instead of the compressed bricks?

eco earth coir that is loose has been partially hydrated..
i would suggest that you  rinse it and then strain and squeeze it to field capacity.

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

Its the pet store stuff.  Does anyone know whether it has preservatives or chemical additives?  j-rich...did you do anything special to the loose coir as preparation for your grow?  My mycelia continue to avoid it.
