what casing stuff is this
    #1051944 - 11/14/02 10:49 AM (15 years, 9 months ago)

I ordered a casing from a company and am trying to figure out what it consists of. I am pretty sure the bottom is perlite. The top layer is "chips"of stuff that is sort of reflective, kink of a dark brown with a mirror like finish, sort of. Not sure what it is as this is my first time growing. I sure some one here will know. Thanks in advance.

the top layer you described sounds like vermiculite.

I bet its vermiculite with oyster shells mixed in. That would explain the "shiny chips"
