coconut fiber vs peat moss
Hi Everyone :)
I wanted your opinion on something. I have a fairly large bag of Coconut Fiber, perlite, and woodchips, that I got l got a few mths ago. The main part being Coconut fiber. Quite a bit of perlite and bark mixed with it.
I was just wanting to know if this could replace Peat Moss. We are going to try to look for material for the 5:1:1 mix next week, (the fir/pine bark is what we are lacking here, seems strange with all the pine trees around- lol) The only bark I can find in a large bag is called Forest Bark. Other than that~~ the pet store sells fir bark, very pricey. Would Forest Bark work?
I was just wondering what you thought of Coconut Fiber as a replacement for Peat Moss... from what I've read, there isn't much of a difference.. or am I missing something?
Any opinion on the subject?
