Is there a problem with casing using straight coco coir?

It's the cheapest of all the casing materials and I need a good bit of them for my bulk grow.

wonderd bout that before, how far coir can be used as a substitute for verm.
I can roll cakes in coir cant I? Can I use coir in my cakes instead of verm?
Might need the verm layer anyway..

i think people usually mix it w/verm as coir by it self is prone to overlay... Coir has nutes in it so the myc eats through it real quick and is where the overlay comes in (at least thats been my experience).

Adding some verm to the coir will greatly enhance the casing's water retention properties. I mix them 50/50, but even a small amount of verm will help.
