Not good Substrate / Coco "Soil"

The problem with most all 'Coco soil" / "Bed a beast" /" Eco Earth" or any of that compressed brown "stuff" that looks like coffee grounds is that it :

Really doesn't work well.

Especially on it's own.

It clumps when on the dry side. It gets too soggy and sopping wet when it's not drained properly. It's just hard to deal with.

One of the worst things (other than all the above) it sticks to the frog and they often ingest it and become impacted and die.

I would use fir bark before the "coffee grounds".....just my .02

"Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana".
And, some of it can have a very high salt content from what I'm told.
