  My findings about coir
From: "?goston J?nos" agoston.janos at citromail.hu> on 2005.12.18 at 10:03:27(13612)
Dear All,

Coir (or cocopeat at us) is commercially
available about 5 years now in Hungary, but nobody has been doing any researches
about suitability for bulbs, garden use or anything.
My biggest finding is: it will loose from its
texture if its well watered and frozen, becouse of the 8% volume increment of
the water (when it turns into ice).
So I may not let it moist if I want to preserve the
structure. The other thing is mice love to live in it if it's dry, because it's
warm, and hydrofobe.
