Coir is a substrate material. Why case with it? That's like using manure. I prefer straw with no casing, but if one insists on casing, peat/verm or even plain verm is suitable.

because rodger has his opinion,
but his opinion is just that,
his opinion.
others disagree,
and many find a coir-based casing mix to be satisfactory.
we have found that pure coir casings tend to overlay,
so we now recommend the roughly 50/50 coir/verm ratio
or 60/40, a popular choice from the archives.
coir-based casing should be applied
thicker than others to prevent overlay.

I think 50/50 coir/verm works well only if you steadily maintain it. Like keeping a sterile bag of casing mix around to lightly sprinkle and do patch work. peat/verm/lime is a lot less maintenance, i believe.

im wondering why all the fruits came from the sides and not the top of the casing where the light was readily available.
maybe the verm mix was too matted down?

I think that the trash bags should have been double layered, it appears that light still passed through them.

Cubes are pinning fools...It does not surprise me one bit that a minimal amount of light would innitiate pinning. Great job, bra! Keep up the good work.

my friend has never done a tub before.
is the trashbag to keep the light out of clear tubs(meaning you dont need it if your tub is colored)
or is it to help keep moisture in , and make the tub easier to clean?

I was attempting to prevent light from entering, but it wasn't thick enough, I also used a plastic layer to make maintenance easier.
