Coco Coir or Jiffy Mix?
    #4500598 - 08/05/05 05:29 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I've read you can find Jiffy Mix at walmart and use it as a casing mix... is this any good... and how do i sterilize it
and what about coco coir, can that be found there too?

coco coir can be found at pet stores under the name bed a beast. Jiffy mix can be sterlized in the microwave. 10 min on high with a break at 5 min to stir the mixture around.

^^ make sure you hydrate the jiffy mix to field capacity before microwaving it.

if you can get jiffy mix :grin: it is the EZest.
pasteurizing it would be a good idea.
coco coir can be found at any store that sells lizards and snakes.
just ask for reptilia bedding. :smile:

I honestly don't know. I just ordered from them, and their invoice showed no charge for shipping. Maybe it's free...

You can contact them and ask, I suppose. Their prices are in Canadian dollars, so they're actually cheaper than they appear. I obtained their product before from a US supplier. The price was very cheap, but shipping was high. I thought the source might give a better deal.
