Coconut Bark?
    #1932516 - 09/19/03 03:17 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I cant find coir where I live (out of season) but petland sells what they call coco bark. What do you guys think aout this? I just had it described to me over the phone so I dont know what it looks like but He said it's in a brick and it's used for reptile bedding. :confused:

Is way to course to use as a casing . Out of season that is'nt possible . Look for a product at Petsmart called "BED A BEAST " , it is coco coir in brick form that you soak in water to make it expand .
Good Luck

Shoot, I'll have to order it off the net than.


I cant go into my local hydro store for reasons I wont speak of.
We dont have petsmart here, only petland. I phoned all the home and garden places and they only carry it in the spring. Sucks to be me.

No Petsmart in your area ?
Go take a look at it , if it is big chips pressed together , it is wrong stuff .
If it is fine looking material all pressed together , than it is right stuff .
Like I said ask for "BED A BEAST " , any decent sized pet shop should carry it or be willing to order it for you , it is not a seasonla product for pet shops .
Good Luck

Guess what, you just found coco coir.
It is coconut bark. 

I'm just editing this as to be perfectly clear. Coco coir is coconut husk or bark, shreaded up very small.

You poor "banned fkr" ,  :wink: from the hydro store , that is .
Do go look at what your pet store has , like exta says coco bark is coir , but it may be the real chunky stuff that is no good for a casing .
Glad to have been some help
See ya round
Trip n D

Does anyone know the pH on coir? I want to know if I should add gypsum to it?

coco coir is neutral and can be used stand alone.

So if I add CaSO4, calcium sulfate, which is gypsum for mushroom metabolism it should not hurt? Even though it drops the pH 1/2 to 1 point. The pH scale cannot be balanced exactly on 7. Do shrooms prefer acidic or the basic side of nuetrality?
