Thanks Allison.

I have been using Epsom Salts and a high nitrate fertilizer for a couple of months now and all is well. The coir produced here in Colombia seems to be less salty than that from India and Sri Lanka. I also triple rinse it first.  I started treating it because I was using it for Gesneriad seed sowing and did not want to take chances.

So far so good with Aroids.

I will let my friend know about the links.
