    Trying to source tree fern fibre in Edmonton.
    Any ideas what I could substitute with if I can’t get any?
    I’ve currently got:
    Beats peat
    Orchid mix
    Sphagnum
    Charcoal
    Peat

    Thanks

    My opinion is that tree fern fibres are not even close to being necessary, Charcoal, Bark and milled Spagnum is all you need

    I just got a bag of BBQ charcoal. I’ve read on here that’s what some people are using. You just have to make sure it’s pure hardwood and you can crush it up with a hammer
