    Does GrowCoir - Organic Coconut Coir Fiber work well enough to use alone or should I stick to using the usual peat, perlite ect.?

    Not sure for sundews, I know some people use straight coir for their Nepenthes, but that's a completely different story. Hoepfully this will bump up and someone will see this who can answer your question.

    I've never used this for my dews. When I've used it for my neps, I usually mixed in some LFS to hold more water.

    The great thing about coir is that it's very free-draining, but it dries out quickly (sometimes in as little as an hour if in a small pot and exposed to a dry environment). It's probably not the best thing to use for drosera.
