Hi there,

I normally use coir peat blocks and critter comfort/crumble but in abit of a lapse and being unable to find coir peat at my local Bunnings I grabbed this instead (Coir Garden Soil):

Would this still be suitable for a snake, bluey, geckos or frogs (mixed with spagnum moss for frogs)?

Cheers!

You need to check if it’s been treated with any chemicals, I wouldn’t trust it

the thing about the coir peat block is that it’s just that… coir peat in a compressed block
When u get the coir peat block, use a LITTLE bit of water otherwise you will be waiting a week for it to dry

I have it mixed with euci mulch for my blueys. Sometimes it has chunky pieces like kritter crumble, other times it’s literally just coir peat, I find it annoying sometimes because I have a bluey that gets irritated eyes from coir peat and the chunky stuff was better for him.
