I have been using coconut husk chips as a major component in potting mix for Nepenthes and some others. *I soak the material for several days to remove unwanted dissolved salts, dust, fines, etc. *Have been discarding the chips that sink to the bottom of the container, as I have always done with orchid bark. *However, this amounts to roughly 25% of the cocanut chips.
What are some of you other growers out there doing? *Are you discarding or using the "sinkers".
Thanks for any thoughts,
