I'm transitioning from peat to coir slowly. I think buying the washed coir is worth it because it absorbs so much and you practically need a centrifuge for squeeze the water out.

Under better late than never.....

There are riococo slabs under there somewhere.

Griffin greenhouse supply now carries a dryer mix that is more chips and less fines from fibredust.
Trying those this year. $3ish and each one holds 3 plants and I can pick them up locally. Pretty low substrate cost.

I should try 6 plants/bag that would bring substrate cost down to $0.50 per plant, problem is in august I would be about 2 hours from losing the whole crop if there was an irrigation fail.
