g'day salmon egg,
surely mushroom compost from a mushroom farm would be more economical, as it comes ready to use the way i use it, can't see coir stuff having much in the line of nutrients in it?
funny in some industries hey they create a bi-product that normally they have to pay to have disposed of then they try to find a market for the stuff so save costs but then they charge and arm and a leg for the stuff, talk about wanting their cake and eating it too??
we get 16 kilogram (i think) bags of it over here for $2.50AUD

That sounds like a good price.
I do not need plant nutrition. My use of coir is as a part root medium for hydroponics. All the nutrition is applied with totally (well almost) inorganic chemicals. I believe hydroponics is popular in .au land.

g'day bill,
ther seems to be a fair following of hydroponics over here.
for me it's just not naturally organic enough, and if all things go wrong probably not that sustainable as it is a false medium used for growing, but for those with very limited space and noi garden area i can see the benefits.

I am not a great fan of organic gardening. Unless you do "green energy" exclusively, you are using fossil fuel energy in various ways. You might as well use it to produce the inorganic chemicals plants thrive on. I will stake (no pun intended) for taste against any grown by "organic" methods.
