Vermiculite performing poorly as casing material
    #1137522 - 12/13/02 06:29 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Substrate : 700ml Rye


Vermiculite
The colors are far off, the real thing does NOT have those blue specks.


Screened potting soil

Strain : Ecuador (Equador, EQ)

So, does verm always perform this poorly?
I guess im doing something wrong...?

Anyway, these pictures where taken a few days ago and the one cased with
screened potting soil is getting wild (3-6 inches big).

Maybe if i can borrow a camera i'll take some pictures... of my first babys!

:laugh:

I screened ordinary potting soil containing peat moss, sand and limestone and used that.
pH 7.
Mixed to field capacity(+20ml) and pressure cooked for 45 min.
:smile:

Seems to work ok.
First mush.  :laugh:
