Overpriced considering the many alternatives...
...and therefore was surprised to find this soilless made up of black plastic bag shreds, 6-10" sticks and twigs, rocks (actual stones not perlite or volcanic ash,) and the most gnats I've ever seen from any bags of medium, ever.
These problems were consistent across all the bags I bought. Do not expect FFOF quality even with the similar looking ingredients, it's not even close.
If you choose to brave this medium make sure you're using either feltiae nematodes, DE dust, neem, and/or 1 Tbsp ground mosquito dunks per liter of water once a week until all the fungus gnats are toast. Sticky strips are a must too.
This is probably 30-40% more than it should cost given the quality, even before the issue with the gnat infestation in every single bag that will end up costing you even more money.
I should have bought some sterile coco bricks.
