How do you guys feel about leaving out the silicone step and just applying the coco bedding right into the Greatstuff? I have heard about people doing this and just im just looking for some more feed back.

I considered this when doing mine but decided that it wouldn't be a good idea. Once the great stuff cures, it will have expanded of course, which will leave open spaces that do not have any coco bedding on them and will need to be patched up later on with silicone. Since silicone will be needed to patch up any missed areas it is best to just wait until it cures and then do a thorough coating with silicone and the bedding. Also, I consider it better to coat the foam with silicone anyway as I'm still skeptical towards any chemical leaching.
