I use straight sterilized coir. :cool: Simple and effective.

Straight coir cantaminates easily because of it's acidic pH which favours contaminants, you can fix that by adding crushed oyster shell or calcium carbonate or lime.

I havent seen too much contamination problems with using straight coir...its when you get it too wet is when you run into problems...

Make it drier when applied, and spray with a very dilute h202 mist.
