soil question, comparison to coco coir etc
    #610482 - 02/24/12 03:39 PM (4 years, 9 months ago)

Hello,

I'd like to know how do decaying leaves and organic matter in general, comprised humus, compare to coco coir or peat as growing medium in pots.

I've read that, based on same volume, coco coir seems to support 2x the roots that peat would, so I'm wondering if decaying organic matter, leaf litter, would make a replacement.

Thank you :smile:

No, that would invite all sorts of problems.  Bugs and mold, good and bad.  I think it would be a VERY bad idea.

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

I see :smile: would compost/humus-rich soil be acceptable since it is already decayed and won't shift pH as much?
