I am going to be using some soon , but I remember someone saying " just stick a butterknife in and break some off"

DO you know how hard this shit is??????


I tried cutting through it with a steak knife and it took forever, and I dont want to expand 9 liters of growing medium everytime

idea????

I thought about taking a wet string and wraping around a section, and making it tighter and tighter as the wet string makes the fiber soft

might take longer but it would be easier than cuttin with a knife

this shit really is a "coco brick" like it says

Well, the op did log in as recently as 2007. So there’s a chance.

Stay tuned for a new tek on the lost secrets of microwaving your way to bountiful mush.
