I bet coir peat would be better than sphagnum peat because it far less
acidic. It also holds moisture better and can be had in the form of
expandable bricks from petshops where it is sold as bedding for
terrarium animals and it's also sold for horticultural purposes. "Eco
Earth" brand is what I use to bed my Boxies and Mexican Wood Turtles and
as part of my greenhouse growing mediums.

As a matter of fact I've seen these bricks included in worm composting
kits sold by various organic and hydroponics suppliers so I'm convinced
it must be a good medium for worms.
