I use coco coir with either peat or a cheap bag of topsoil for my fossorials. Straight coco coir for my arboreals. I normally put it by a heater to dry it out. The pre-made bags are waaaay too exoensiveThat coco coir is great and all until you have to wait 5 years for it to dry and have to eat ramen for a month to be able to afford it long term.
depends on where you buy it and how you initially use it.That coco coir is great and all until you have to wait 5 years for it to dry and have to eat ramen for a month to be able to afford it long term.
The moss doesn't have pesticides in it either, but I want to test it to make sure that there wasn't any contamination.I just read your full post. It doesn't have to be organic, just regular filling topsoil. I'd google topsoil companies to see which add pesticides and which don't
Hey are you still around? I would like to ask you a question or 2 but am unable to inbox youTake a small sample to a local nursery . Explain your situation and they will probably test it for you . They use small test strips similar to the ones that are used for testing aquarium water . The strips detect the presence of pesticides . They will also have all top soil , peat , coir and maybe even cork bark that you will ever need . "Mom and Pop" garden centers are the T keeps best resource for supplies .
