Quick question
    #1056513 - 11/15/02 07:24 PM (14 years, 22 days ago)

I dont have any verm around, can any one recomend a subsitute for the top layer where there should be verm. Preferably this substitue would be common enough to be around the house.

Thanks

You mean you don't have any verm around the house? or you can't find it in the area? i've only heard of casing with verm, 50/50, or just straight up peat moss. But if you find those you can find verm

thanks for the quick response. I should have been more clear, i am talking about the jar process of growing, so what could i use instead of verm?

i am just testing these old syringes i have, to see if they still work...

alright it seems like there are no suitable household items to replace the verm as the insulating layer in a jar.

SO, have you people forgone the verm layer and just made a jar of all brownrice??

Did you already have verm to mix with your brf and run out? anyway that layer verm on the top is to catch contams coming in through the sides. you could probly sub that with poly fil which can be found in plush toys. maybe sink a layer of tin foil in there first like the ramsey verm seal tek. then when you inocc, the needle will peirce through the foil. OH! how about some waded up coffee filters? I don't know but whatever ever you use can't hurt since your going sterilize it. Good luck!

you'll at least need some verm to mix with the brf. it can't really hold enough moisture on its own. you can wait and buy some online if you can't find it locally, its definatly worth the wait. and its dirt cheap

alright, well this is not a grow, this is just a test to see if my spores are still viable...so do you think if i just use the brown rice without the verm mixed in, i will be able to see some colonization if the spores are still good?
