DO NOT USE SAWDUST
I asked the sales rep if it needed a special peat moss and he said he was not trying to sell me something I could get anywhere....any peat most work (he said get a big bag, separate it into 1gal ziplock bags and if it is dry spray with a little water before using it (I just kept an eye out for when landscapers were doing work around the the marina or some other planters and take a little here and there). Some people use coconut fiber, sawdust has too many chemicals in it and exotic woods can be toxic.
I was advised to put a commercial size coffee filter in the bowl before each use (nothing sticks to the side) but you have to be careful and get the ones that do not have bleach.
