Casing Sub Bulk Coir with Verm only?
    #11246257 - 10/14/09 04:03 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

I've got three small tubs of 20/80 coffee/coir just about ready to go.  I'm going to be throwin em in a 110 court SG FC with two aquarium bubblers on either side.  I've read many conflicting opinions about whether or not to case coir and have decided that, since I'm no longer using my martha set up, it would probably be helpful to case these for better pinning and micro humidity just about the sub.  This is a first time coir experiment for me and so far I've been incredibly happy with how things are going--colonization time, ease of process, etc.  I've also never used an SG FC before (always used a martha and improvised Shroomgod's strawtek).   

So....finally to my question....

Can I get away with a straight oven pasteurized verm casing layer at field capacity with coir bulk sub? 

Due to my profession I have little time and space (but can't totally give up my favorite hobby) and really need to keep this as simple and easy as possible.

Yes straight verm will work. You could always do a 50/50 of verm/jiffy mix.

THanks to everyone for the help.

Damion5050--thanks for the link.  You have easily surpassed my search engine skills....

So straight verm has at least worked for one person.

I'm looking into the jiffy mix thing but can't seem to find any around town.  There are other seed starting materials that seem to have the same make up but I'm concerned about wetting agent additives. 

BotanistHype--you case your coir bulk with coir? 

So anyone know about how much verm I should use for a 4 inch sub thickness?

Jiffy Mix should be found at your local grocery store.

I have cased with straight verm many times.  also orchid mix, perlite, peat.  I now use a mix of 2:1:1:1/2 peat:verm:perlite:orchid mix.  grab some peat and mix with the verm or perlite.  I am a firm beleiver in non nutritive casing layers so don't use coir, but it works

Damn...5 flushes, huh.  I'm convinced (and really busy) so straight verm it is. 

So, suggestions on how thick for an aggressive 4inch thick sub?
