make my jars airy enough
    #1081330 - 11/24/02 10:38 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Its been a while since ive attempted these grows. Now my problem is all i have is the small grade verm. All the stores seem to not carry it lately. So i need something that will makes the substrate a little fluffier in the jars. that is unless small grade is acceptable?


thanks
souljah

is your quote from duke nukem? he said it in a game i played.

anyway, i hear you can buy vermiculite online, maybe try that. but as far as fine verm is concerned, you should be able to use it, but it will take longer to grow.

the fine verm will work okay. How are you preparing it? wetting the verm first then adding the brf should make it just right.

This is a post from me on another thread and thought it applied here as well.

>I started my first jars last week using the PF and had the same concern when I had close to twice as much substrate as was needed. There was only one shop in town, a nursery actually, and NO ONE else carried verm all by itself. I tried garden centers, walmart, kmart, all the hardware and home improvment places. It was very fine stuff. After 8 days I have good mycilium growth(1.5 inch X 4 inch patches) in all my jars. >

I also mixed the verm and BRF thouroghly together then added distilled water. Came out with nice little balls of BRF well distributed throughout the verm after sterilization.

I used small grade vermiculite for the first attempt. I got growth in 4-5 days.

it all works, you just have to adjust water and compactness levels. Load it lightly...don't pack it in. keep looking for medium grade. However, the small is good for the dry top layer.

Fine grade verm should be fine but if you wants your substrate more airy you could make your own home made "chunky" BRF in a coffee grinder or something.

It's time to kick ass and chew bubblegum . . . and I'm alllll outta gum . . .
That's at the beginning of the level when something airborne goes streaking over your head while you're up on the roof. Then you blast away and kick some ass. Haha, I love that game, and I miss it.

Actually the quote is from a movie, "They Live" It's a B movie where this older pro wrestler I think was the star of the flick. Aliens are invading Earth and the only way to see them is to put on a special pair of glasses. The dude says "It's time to kick ass and chew bubble gum, and Im all out of gum" during the bank scene.

It was "Rowdy" Roddy Piper.
