With the need to transplant all the tomato seedlings, i will be needing more potting mix. and I figure it would be too expensive to have it purely Orgamix.
I asked senior gardener and she suggested a blend of Coco Coir and Perlite. Unfortunately I didn’t do my research. When I got to the garden center, they weren’t sure about Coco coir and was offering me Coco peat or Coco chips. I remembered senior gardener saying her coco coir came in blocks so i decided to go for the coco chips.
Perlite is a non organic, lightweight material that retains water and assists in better soil drainage.
The problem with the coco chips is that it was too big. I looked it up and it seems coco coir and coco peat are pretty much the same, the difference possibly being the packaging (coir is in a block, peat is loose).
I didn’t follow the 1:1:1 ratio though. I might have only put 2% perlite, 8% coco chips and 90% Orgamix.
