Is Coconut Bark the same thing as Coco Coir
    #747546 - 07/15/02 10:16 AM (18 years, 9 months ago)

Went to Petco today and couldn't find anything that said coco coir on it. However, they had several packages of coconut bark. Is this the same thing?

hell no,, cocunut bark, when shredded is alittle softer then wood, but it aint cocunut husk, cocunut husk is like a moss almost. if you need some,, pm me,, I guarantee a cheaper price then any price you can find.

( I make my own cocunut husk,, no middle manning here )

>cocunut husk is like a moss almost.

You want coco coir though, not coco husk.
Coco coir has a consistency of peat, when hydrated.

fukin cuz the shred it, and soak it,, whatever,, if you think shredded cocunut husk is better, then you can have that opinion,, but stamets has been selling whole cocunut husk patches.

I couldn't find Coco either, but i went either Petco, or Petsmart I can't remember which and got "Bed-A-Beast" pet and reptile bedding. Last night I cased 4 qt jars of birdseed with it after I put it in turkey baking pan and added 6 qts of water to hydrate it and pasteurizing it in oven for 30 min. I have heard of others using this successfully so I think it will be ok. I will post my results.
