Terrarium compost - peat free coir compost

I used the peat-free, coir compost, which was included in the package with my BiOrbAir terrarium, as the growing media for this terrarium. I followed the straight-forward instructions to pre-soak the compost before adding it to my terrarium. This was the only compost I used when planting this terrarium, I didn’t add any other growing media or fertilizer, I used only the coir compost provided with the BiOrbAir.

If you would like to try the same peat free coir compost in your terrarium, vivarium, bottle garden, orchidarium, or indoor garden, this compost is available to purchase separately from BiOrb.

This BiOrbAir peat-free coir compost block comes as part of the package when you purchase a BiOrbAir terrarium, you can also purchase additional coir compost blocks on the BiOrbAir website.

Here’s the BiOrbAir peat-free coir compost being soaked in water prior to planting.
