has anyone tried using tree fern fiber..im guessing its been shredded... as a soil
amendment..??
i know orchid and fern growers use it as a slab to grow their plants..
i guess it has good drainage properties,doesnt decay quickly,
ive been using coco coir and like what ive seen so far..
also if anyone has used tree fern fiber..any good sources for good amounts of it..
like bales for sale at decent prices.???
thanks in advance !!!

Google, specifically gives me more fact/ information type results than other searches which are so geared to shopping! (even though in this case , it kinda WAS shopping you wanted help with... LOL.)
