All Organic Non-Toxic Earthworm Casting Colonzing mix %'s
    #11305579 - 10/23/09 01:23 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

I was wondering if anyone has tried this stuff for colonizing, or casing. I went to my local nursery to get some more perlite, and was looking to get a little bag of manure to try casing with that, but I got this bag of all organic worm casting instead. Anyone ever use? and if so, what is a good % mixture for both colonizing, and casing? Also, before anyone says it, I have looked, but there aren't any clear percentages for mixing sub or casing, and every other helpful looking topic cannot be found. So please help a brother out =)

I use a little over 1c. worm castings in a total of 6 pints of substrate, (including the castings). :goodluck:

I use up to a half pint of worm castings to a brick of coir. Seems to work ok. I'd like to experiment more.

What I was thinking of doing is the normal Verm/BRF tek, but instead split the BRF/WormCasting. Anyone think that will work? Or should I split the verm/wc instead? More help needed, but after I get a percentile down, I will make a post about time lapsed for full colonization, and time for fruting with pics of flushes, so hopefully it will help some of you guys out that are thinking of trying it out. But still need a percentile =)

In PF cakes? Start out small- maybe a teaspoon per cup of BRF.

Good idea, I'll do that, and then add like 2 to another, and then 1 with all worm casting and no BRF, and I'll let you guys know what's up, and how good shit turns out. If anyone else has 2cents to through in, please by all means do so.

Respect
Philthy

Bad idea. All worm casting and no BRF = mud.

Depends on how much you use, I think. You could coat the verm lightly with castings instead of brf, maybe.

Oh, I get it. Never did the PF tek, so I wasn't thinking about the verm.

To the OP, :goodluck:

I just used the normal BRF method, and added 1 tablespoons of casting in half of the jars, 1 teaspoon in the rest of the jars except for one of them, and then in only one jar I used casting/verm. If you guys are interested, I will post comments about the grow and method, time of full colonization, and the final outcome. Thanks for all the help/comments.
