Here is a $6.25 block of coir which when expanded is 2 1/2 – 3 cu. ft.:

Thanks for the information and valuable links.

Those seem like decent prices too.

Looks good and smells good.
I cannot wait to use it soon

Thx Mushtaq86 for the suggestion to try it. Lol

Keep me updated on how your bananas grow using coco coir, mine are doing great at the moment, for the short period that I have been using coco coir.

I am going to try Hector's method of using pool silica sand next year.
