I used to use a mix made by Scott's which became Sungro Metro mix, which 
had no sphagnum. I loved it for my outdoor bulbs in plastic pots. Did 
not shrink. The bark and perlite must have kept it from being too moist. 
Can't get it anymore unless you purchase a truckload, but they do have 
mixes with coir/sphagnum.
