The simplest method of preparing coco coir is probably to just add the correct amount of water, microwave for 5 minutes, stir around, microwave for 5 more minutes, allow to cool and case.

How long have you looked before breaking down and deciding to ask?  :nut:

Theres tones, theres so many that youll probably be back to ask which one works the best. And after that youll get so many different answers and opinions that you'll be blown away.

Anyone know a real good link, cuz I dont even know myself which one works the best, i havent used coco coir yet :biggrin:

I personally like 75/25 coir/verm...I don't sterlize my coir or verm with heat....I add some h202 to the water and thats it....I keep the coir wet in an old verm bag till ready to be used then add the verm as needed and I do add a lil bit more h202/water when I go to case....so far I havent' had a single contam

just a quick tip on using coir; you almost definitely wont need the whole brick, so i usually saw it up with a hack saw, and then soak about a quater fo it, and soak more if i need it; saveswastage

Yeh, soak about 1/6th of what you plan on using.  Microwave before adding water for about 2 minutes then hydrate it in a draft free area.  It will expand to 6-7 times its original size and then you can apply as needed after about 15 minutes.  It's a very easy casing material to use and works great.  :laugh:
