peat moss or coconut coir

Post  newstart on 11/24/2011, 11:32 pm

I have been doing lots of research and read and checking.

so someone said that you can use coconut coir instead of peat moss. Has anyone done this? And if so what were the results. I am getting ready to shop for prices on both and see which will be a better deal. Also with using the coconut coir its more of a renewable source than the peat moss.

Any thoughts

Seems to have that coir is just as good as peat moss, at least according to some.

we have purchased the pre-mixed Mel's Mix,, and it has both the coir and peat moss in it, and it's working fine! Go for it, and have fun!!
