Cocunut Coir--seed starting

11 years ago

What are the board's thoughts on using Coconut Coir for seed starting? I'm curious with regards to both seed starting and initial potting up after true leaves appear. Last year i used peat pods to start seeds and then potted up in a miracle grow potting mix. Does the coconut coir have sufficient nutrients to last between potting up and garden transplant? If not, what kind of fertilizer should I use--I have various tomato ferts but have never used them at potting up and I know that dilution is very important here.

I'm not married to coconut coir if people have had bad experiences, but I'd like to identify a non-peat alternative.
