I am curious if anyone has ever used Coco chips mixed in with their media and if so, what were the results? I was told it works great for Heli's, which is why I bought it but wondering how well it might work for other CP's such as Sarrs and Drosera.

I commonly use husk chips as part of my Sarr mix. Never tried it for drosera. Particularly for Drosera, make sure the husks have been soaked and well rinsed to remove any salts.

I clean everything thoroughly after learning the hard way. Did it make any difference with your Sarrs?

Sarrs have been fine …. But Drosera tend to be more salt sensitive.
