I'll have to check out the Mother Earth coir blocks, I got the FibreDust Coco Coir 5 kg block for $20 (Amazon) and was very happy with it. Both seem prewashed but the Mother Earth is $5 cheaper. :thumbs up:

I've been using the coir mixed with some compost, perlite and some steer manure for my tomatoes in grow bags. Drains well and gets wet fast. Next to my tomatoes I have blueberries in a raised bed that has a ton of peat in it. It's such a PITA once it gets dry and the drainage sucks. The blueberries are happy but I won't use a peat-based mix for anything else again. Plus I really like that coir is a renewable resource.
