coco fiber same as coir?
    #1998404 - 10/10/03 08:37 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I had someone pick up a bag of coconut fiber thinking it was the same as coco coir. Looking at it doesn't convince me it would be good for casing. Very coarse fiber that I doubt would hold moisture very well.

Does anyone know anything about the differences?
Thanks
Buzz

Is the glass half-full or half-empty? I say it is both.

cut coconut husk (fiber, but not bark) into little pieces, with your scissors .
then put it in the blender and grind it as fine as possible .
now you have coir .

Thanks for the info.
What pisses me off is that I asked the guy at the garden shop and he had no clue what coir was.
