Unless you are 100% sure it is pesticide/chemical/additive free, then I wouldn't chance it. Is there no way you can go get some more coco fiber?

For the future, I buy the compressed coco fiber and prepare a small bucket of it. Once its dried out I keep the bucket covered. This way you'll always have a good amount of it ready to go. Everyone has their methods, but that works for me.

Top soil is a fantastic substrate....its just heavy. Its also the one sub you dont need to tamp down, you can just pour it right in.

As said, as long as it doesnt contain pesticide or fertalizers, it should be fine.

You can alway leave a few crickets on it for a couple days as a test if youre not sure.
