Yet another media question

I found a comment on reddit claiming that "CoCo + peat is a great combo for everything except Nepenthes. For those, you are best off with pure CoCo." Is there any merit to this.

Is this better than the peat bark mix I am using on by temperate CPs?
Coco is great but often has salts, some of which can leech out slowly. If the coco is thoroughly rinsed,
I find it works very well. I don't use pure coco, but an even ratio of chopped long fiber sphagnum, fine or medium sized perlite and small coco chunks.
