10 May 2012 Coconut Coir 10 May 2012 Coconut Coir
Purchased coconut coir from Home Depot for $7.95 per brick. My use is in the garden for selected plants, and to use in my home potting soil mix. I find the modern Sphagnum peat moss to be almost a powder and useless for my purposes. One coconut coir brick expands in about half an hour to about 2 cubic feet. I tried a test mixture with my potting/starter soil and consider it ideal. It has some texture. Apparently there are different types. This happens to be designed for mulch, so is a bit more coarse than just the hairs of the coconut shell. I consider it perfect for my applications.

I purchase this at pet stores for my son's hermit crabs. Wonder if it's cheaper buying at home depot.
