Question Mixing old dry cutted stem pieces into coco?

Got these month old dry stems and was thinking about cutting em to little pieces and mixing that into coco.

Should I ph treat cutted stems by soaking em and is this good idea overall?

Thx.

on the face of it there might be one benefit. fibers in the stems would move water just as the fibers in the coco husk do which is a stated benefit of coco. coco is so great though why fuck with it.

Cant just throw those stems away easy thats bad right was thinking about getting rid of em by mixing em into coco which I could throw away together with processed stems in it.. best would be mixing those stems into dust and throw that away.. but how?

I use pieces of stems as mulch, mixed with aloe leaf slices and yucca stem slices. Keeps moisture in. Keeps the bacteria and other micro organisms more active.

Sounds like you're in an apartment.

Short of a compost bin on a porch, there always the easy route of an open dumpster. Construction sites are easy peasy.

there is the mistake- you should reuse the coco. i add some more coco to mine once in awhile but been using mostly the same coco for 5 years

how small are those pieces/do they decompose/broke down after some time completely to dust?

what about mold and those pieces are you using some bleach on top?

Thx.

Would have to go with adjusting the ph of stems prior to tossing them. Seems like some kind some kind of ritual or ceremony might appropriate.
