This stuff is great! So far I've mixed the coco/peat mix with quickcrete concrete and added the concrete bonding adhesive until a mortar consistency. I've pressed this mix all over the foam, then pressed in lots of the coco/peat mix. When this all dries for several days, I'll brush off any excess coco/peat and allow it to dry thoroughly. The test piece I made up dried hard and didn't soften when soaked in water but the coco/peat stayed moist. When the gallery gets fixed I'll put up some pics.
