Hello - I'm new & have been reading about soils.
Coir will be a good fit for my watering habits (although, I AM going to try a faster mix...), but I've been reading that salts need to be leached from it prior to use...
And now to the question!
Might I just leave my brick out in the rain for a while - a week or so, for instance - as long as it were contained in mesh of some nature, so it wouldn't escape?
I'd be interested in comments about particulate/pollutants that may be in the rainwater (I live in the 'burbs & it tends to rain for days on end in my part of the world...) vs. fluoride, chlorine & etc in tapwater accumulating in the medium...
And, once the coir is conditioned properly, is there any reason not to let it dry out & use as needed? I use wood heat, so there is real potential for it actually getting dry.
Thanks for your thoughts & opinions on this topic!
