Q.Can you put used Planters Pride, Coconut Coir pellets in my compost?

I cannot find anything but buying information in the form of advertising on the internet. It is safe to include used pellets in compost? They never worked, by the way, and the plants that germinated died as soon as I transplanted them.

Yes, these may be better used in compost. There are many problems that must be addressed before you can properly use coconut products in gardening. Many companies will not take the time to fully wash the salt content from coconut coir, and they will be better broken down through composting.
