    We use coco coir mixed with potting soil for starting seeds indoors but still use the peat when planting fruit trees because of the amount of the material needed to properly get the plant established – pick the right product for the job you are doing.

    I have avoided coco coir in the past because I incorrectly thought it was the same as cocoa mulch. Coco coir is safe to use around pets, unlike cocoa mulch. I’m glad I read this post about all the benefits of using coco coir.

    Coco Coir is my favorite to plant with! It holds moisture perfectly without molding! This allows me to water less and plant more! Love it. Thanks for all the other great info on it!

    Coco coir was a great starter for my seeds indoors however I did not know or realize it would not sustain my tomato seedlings. I planted 5 variety, 150 seedlings and lost nearly half because at 5-6 weeks the roots began to stop growing in the coco coir. I learned thankfully that I needed to bear root them and plant inputting soil. Coco coir has a learning curve
