Coco coir slightly fertilized??
    #2594480 - 04/23/04 12:56 PM (14 years, 2 days ago)

I want to try growing pan cyans after having grown cubensis a few times. Many posts say coco coir is very good as a casing layer, mixed with vermiculite. The problem is, as far as I know the casing layer should be non-nutritive but the coco coir I found is "slightly fertilized" as it says on the package. Would this be a problem? if yes, I think I will use peat..thanks :sun:
