Coco Coir??? (pics)
    #2196075 - 12/22/03 06:32 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)


Just wondering if this is the same thing as Coco Coir. I found it the grow shop here in town. It seem to be the same thing, but it says that the ph is slightly acidy and that i resists fungal growth.


Here is a pic of my first fully colonized popcorn jar with my new t-shirt i got for xmas.

Whenever I ask people if they have coco coir they just stare at me like im stupid. Am I supposed to have a thin layer of coco coir or vermiculite on the bottom of my casing? How deep should it be?

the only place that sells it around here is the hydroponic shop and it's cheap as hell, no one else knows what it is, it's dosn't really matter what you use on the bottom of the casing, I've used verm, coir, a 60/40 mix (just didn't want to sterlize more shit so just used what I already made up) and nothing at all and never could tell a diffrence, now I don't even use a bottom layer just to save the hassle and material expense.

If it looks like the stuff on the left it?s ok. The stuff on the right is the most common in plant growing and isn?t good as a casing material.

I just bought some Eco Earth reptile bedding. It says its 'compressed coconut fiber expandible substrate'. Is this the right stuff?
