Hey,
I saw a thread on here where Hippie reccomended a certain brand of Coir brick that did not need to be pasteurized and it had links to where it could be purchased and now I can't find the thread.
Can someone help me out?
Thanks

Forest Bed and Eco Earth are other pet store brands that I have used without pasteurizing.

Don't hydrate it all at once or you are going to have a lot of moist coir. That brick will become a HUGE amount.

My FOAF likes to "flake" the coir off with a big kitchen knife and hydrate in small batches. Here's some info...
