Oyster shell calcium supplement???
    #1042963 - 11/11/02 11:31 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Just found oyster shell calcium, a pill calcium supplement from Spring Valley at Walmart and was wondering if I can use it in my casing layer?? It has a few other ingredients but the main one is oyster shell... Please help!

It will work yes but only if the 'other' ingredients you talk about aren`t detrimental to your casing.
Otherwise I don`t see why you can`t use it.

Go to a pet store. It's in the bird section. Prolly 2 aisles over from the coir.  :smirk:
$2 for 2 pounds.

If I got you right your talking bout a pill? So what are you going to do, crush it up and sprinkle it in?

One of the deals with oyster shells is that it provides a tiny little nook for the proper microclimate to evolve and such microclimate is good for pin initiation.....get oyster shells....
