    If it seems nice and light and airy it should work. I don’t like buying peat since most is taken from peat bogs in Canada and it disturbs and affects the environment. Coco is a waste product of the food coconut business they take it and clean wash wheayver and sell it. For next time just a thought

    Don't see why not. Most of the grow will come down to "your hands and your environment".

    I don’t like any more then 30% perlite But that's in coco. I think I would keep it the same no more then 30 in your mix. The vermiculite is kinda like perlite?? I forget, so much out there I simplified and do coco/perlite/worm castings.
