Potting Mix: Coco Dust

I have found that pure Orgamix as potting soil eventually compacts and becomes very dense.  Even with the added perlite and coco chips,  the mix is cakey and solid.  I get the feeling the water doesn’t drain as well at this point.

I’ve purchased this coco dust and it is very fibrous.

I used pure coco dust for the germination of some cherry tomatoes and so far it has been good. Now, I’ve come up with a mix to try for the chillies.


50% Orgamix
45% Coco dust
4% perlite
1% coco chips

It looks good, doesn’t it?
