Cool to have perlite in casing layer?
    #1010147 - 10/31/02 02:49 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

I just bought some jiffy mix compost which is peat, but as I discovered when I opened it, there is some perlite in it as well. Should I save it for house plants or would it still work well as a casing layer if I mixed it with a little verm?

I thought that jiffy mix was peat, verm , and lime? I didn't know they put perlite in there too. How much perlite is in the mix?

There isn't a ton of perlite, but it is quite obviously present. I can't find any vermiculite. The bag is quite vague as to what is in it. Just says "All purpose organic potting compost." I thought Jiffy Mix was a 50/50 mix, so I thought I'd spend the 3 bucks to see what was in it.

can you remove the perlite by hand or maybe dump it in the water and scoop out the perlite that floats to the top?

yeah, I could do something like removing the perlite by floating.. would you say it's not a great thing to have in the casing then?
