Why coconut coir?
I have recently moved to UK and started buying plants this year, with start of spring now.
However I am so disappointed to see all the plants being sold were grown in coconut-coir medium. ( I did some reading about this on internet.. hydroponics and all that crap came out)
The coconut mass that comes along with the plant must obviously have been enriched artificially with nutrients when it started from the supplier and obviously that nutrition will deplete soon.
What should I do after that? I am sure I cannot use manures with that coconut mass. Where are the microbes that will decompose the manure?
Friends, Please tell me weather I am wrong in what I have said and also share your opinion on this please?
