    How many ounces or quarts or pounds is a brick of coir? Because I have a bag of coir and in order to follow some of the teks I need to know the conversion for 1 brick =how much loose coir? Does anybody have one laying around or am old wrapper that can lookto see how many quarts or ounces or whatever are to one brick of coir

    Bricks do come in various sizes and Damions Tek is for the 8 quart brick. You will find when you buy bricks of coir that ones of the same brand that are supposed to be the same size arent the exact same size. That being said always brings your substrate to field capacity.

    Thank you very much for that tip I appreciate it. So do you think that the bag of loose Coco coir is better to have because the consistency is always consistent?

    Use whichever you prefer as long as you bring it to field capacity it will be the consistency that mushrooms prefer to grow in.
