Wow....... while coir was and is a great amendment it did not stretch and fill as I was expecting.
Close inspection revealed an awesome component for a soilless mix.
Coir is awesome....but not for me. Cost is an issue
I had picked up 3 blocks of coir and followed hydration instructions.
Loved the way each filled wheelbarrow
Could not get the expanded volume that I was supposed /expected to achieve.
Peat once fluffed seems to have more volume.
Coir is awesome but not for my application
Gabe uses coir with his grow operation with awesome success.
Check out Hectors photos using the silica sand and some TLC.
