HELP-50/50+ Casing layer not colonizing???
    #1060491 - 11/17/02 07:30 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Covered colonized earthworm with the 50/50 mix and 8% hydrated lime like prescribed in the 50/50+ tek and after 4 days in the inccubator, no signs of growth. I've just taken the casing off and the myclium seems ok, just no growth on the casing??? Thinking about just putting a lighter layer of verm only on top and shortly after that put them into the terrarium. Please help my casing problem!!!

In my experience 8% hydrated lime is waaaay too much. I only need about a teaspoon or two of hydrated lime to bring the pH of several litres of coir/verm up to 8.

Thanks Zeta, thats what I thought was wrong, messed up ph. I think that the 50/50+ tek used a different type of hydrated lime when they set it up, cause they use 8%. Thanks again!!!
