Which is better to use with verm? I heard coir colonizes quicker. are there any other benefits?

Coir also has a better ph, peat is very acidic.

Another option is multipurpose compost (peat free)

But if you can get coir, I would use that.

i love coir for casing is use it by itself and i'm more than happy with it's performance.
i used to use a 60/40 coir verm mix but found that neat coir seems to hold moisture better after dunking and shrinks far less during each flush.

here's a 1st flush pin set from three half pints of brf/hulled millet cased with just coir.

Hmm...I think my kitten will try just coir in the near future.

Do you just sterilize in the microwave like coir/verm?
