Coco coir - UK supplier?
    #1267074 - 02/01/03 01:13 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

Does anyone know where to get coco coir in the UK?
Also can someone give me a link for the coco coir casing tek. Can't seem to find it!

certainly - go to a pet shop that sells lizards, snakes and the like.
ask for 'eco earth' or 'bed a beast' - it looks and feels like a brick. about ?4 for a brick, which you break pieces off and use slowly. one brick will make about 5L of peat-lookalike. works well, too.

good luck, UK!

can these coir brands be used as a bulk substrate without adding anything such as coffee grounds or blood meal? And if i should put additives in the coir after pasteurization what and how much should i put to get the right nitrogen levels? I would like try something similar to this tek posted by Oatman2000. If you help it would be great!

Ebay do good deals on coir too.

Coir can be used on its own with good results...or you could improve it by adding things.

search coir recipe or coir tek
