Coconut mulch?
    #5330770 - 02/23/06 09:44 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

I called my local garden shop and they said they sell a cocount mulch, she didn't know if it was the same as coir. I asked if it was in brick form and she said no, it's bagged up. Is this what I need for a verm/coir casing layer?

Honey,

I would bet those are the shells off cocoa beans (think chocolate). :tongue:
Coir differs greatly.

Try a garden supply, hydroponics, or pet store for Coir blocks.

I can't find anyone that has it. I've called every garden/pet shop I could find and nobody knows what the hell I'm talking about. I don't even really know what it looks like so I can't help them out.

ah mushroom cultivation, using everyday products for things they were never designed for :laugh:

Glad you found some coir, you should try getting some peat as well, it provides a better casing layer then coir does. :smile:

Looks really packed in. It says it will be good for a 40gal tank though so I'm sure it'd be fine for a few casings. Sould I just chop off a small slice or doesn't it expand?

break/saw off a hunk and pour hot water over it
let it expand for a bit and then ring it out, mix, sterilize, and case

It's the same thing but I recommend peat/verm anyday over coir.
Cocount mulch is not even close to cocoa beans how did ya come up with that? That was cute though Tippinthru. :wink: LOL

Read this  LINK

A store clerk could confuse "cocoa mulch", with Coir.

Many garden & nursery supply stores are beginning to stock "cocoa mulch".

Which, comes in large bags, as the clerk described.

I thought possibly, if a stoner called a place, and asked if the had coco coir.

A clerk might confuse the two. :rolleyes:

Confusion :confused: often abounds, with low IQ store clerks. :tongue:
