Coco Coir help needed!
    #2601004 - 04/25/04 02:40 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I want to use coco coir (for pan cyans) as casing material inspite of peat because I can buy peat only in 30 litre bags and that very much more than what I would need..
my problem is the coco coir I found (CocoHum / germany) is slightly
fertilized, so says the package. Are other coco coirs like forest bed and so also fertilized a bit? would this small amount influence anything negatively? is there a way of getting rid of the nutrients (fertilizer) in it?

#1 No, mine is not. (Edit: I use bed-a-beast, from the petstore)

#2 Yes, if the mineral content (nutritional value, especially nitrogren) has been elevated much then it will be much more prone to contamination.

#3 Perhaps if you washed it well, but would probably take much effort. I am surprised you cannot find an un-fertilized brand.

the one I found was in a gardening AND petstore but
I found the coir in the gardening department. maybe
should look in other pet shops? what kind of animals
need this stuff?

I just bought a couple blocks of coco coir... How exactly do I prep it for casing? The block seems pretty solid to me.. :confused:
