How do you guys measure coco coir?
    #3976934 - 03/27/05 07:47 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I'm going for the 60/40 verm/coco casing tek, but I'm wondering how I'm supposed to measure out the coco coir? Do I break up dry pieces and put them in a measuring cup? Or do I wet the coco coir first, then measure out the wet mush? I know it's not essential for the ratio to be exact, but I like to keep things as precise as possible.

Thanks in advance for the help.

HYDRATE IT WITH HOT WATER - FIRST.

It will expand. Once fully expanded,add verm. I don't even measure it. Simply EYEBALL close to a 50/50 mix & you are good to go, IMHO.

50/50 just means same amount of both. i just use a plastic measuring cup, fill it up with verm. dump it in whatever u want then fill it up with coir and mix them up

No measuring cup needed for 50/50. Coffee can, mouthful, ice cream pail, spittoon, whatever. As long as you use the same number of each.

Hydrate BOTH first, so proportions of mix are equal. One wet & another dry doesnt equal - out.
