Best option for yield? worm casting bulk vs casing
    #11200373 - 10/07/09 02:39 PM (8 years, 12 days ago)

I have 2 colonized quart jars of WBS. I can't get any hpoo currently so doing a hpoo/straw bulk grow in a monotub is out of the question. My local nursery has worm castings so I was thinking of doing a grow with that (and maybe straw?), but I couldn't find too much information on this site about them. I could also just make trays for a shotgun FC and case the WBS with 50/50+.

How does one even do a bulk grow with worm castings? Can you mix it with straw and pastuerize just as you would with hpoo?

So what would be the best yield, some sort of bulk or just a simple WBS tray with a casing? I have straw, worm castings, and everything else needed for a 50/50+ casing.

casing grain suck IMO. Worm Casting is A substrate additive, Not a Substrate itself. Go get some Coco Coir for your bulk, and add some worm casting in it. I don't know the ratio but there is plenty of there out there just use the search fonction.
