    Would one of you nice gardeners out there please tell
    me do I need to put some lime in with the growcoir? If yes how much. The reason I ask is it seemed like I had more vigor in my last crop that I grew in soil. Thank you very much,

    Bud – Growcoir should be fairly neutral in pH so I can't imagine that you would need to add lime. It should be noted, that unlike soil, growcoir does not have any significant nutrient value to it. It's used primarily as a soil amendment or as a soiless growing media. Are you fertilizing with anything right now?
