how much water?
    #11387715 - 11/04/09 11:07 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

alright so i posted earlier regarding spawning to bulk, but i forgot to ask how much water to use.  im gonna do 2 mini monos tonight and i plan on using:

1 brick coir
1.25 quarts coffee
1.25 quarts verm
.75 quarts gypsum

i was thinking maybe 1.25 gallons of water?
does anyone know of a formula or ratio for water compared to substrate mix?

Just one gallon of water will be enough. Seems like you need more, I know. You don't.

I personally would use 5 to 5.5 quarts of water.  I usually do 1 brick 2 quarts verm and 5 quarts of water.

Enough that when you pick up a handful it doesn't drip, but if you squeeze lightly you get a few drops. This is known as field capacity. Of you're pasteurizing, just let it drain until it stops dripping, then use the aforementioned squeeze test.

Actually I was looking to the answer to this.  I just finished doing up my substrate and when I give it a good hard squeeze a couple of drops comes out.  Sound good or does it have to be a light squeeze?
