Substitution for 50/50 casing?
    #1220934 - 01/15/03 11:40 AM (14 years, 10 days ago)

Well on my quest to get all my products for a casing attempt, everything was found at the local Lowes, except Vermiculite..... Fresh OUT! Damn... So the next close thing was Jiffy Mix.. (I checked several other places too) Will this due for casing instead of just plain Vermiculite? I would suppose it should be fine, but how about adjusting the recipe for 50/50 with this??? Any suggestions?

do a search for jiffy in these forums. if i'm not mistaken, this (alone) is the preferred casing material for many people.

Try Coco Coir.

I like using 60/40 Verm and Coco Coir...but have used straight Coco Coir with good results.

casing ? [Re: Roadkill]
    #1221134 - 01/15/03 12:45 PM (14 years, 9 days ago)

Well I already bought the Jiffy Mix, and thought I would give it a go... Just wondering about the mix, because I bought Peat, Lime, Jiffy Mix and some of those black pans for starting seedlings...

That is another question, what would be a good size to make the casing pan? I am going to use 3 cakes most likely to spawn...

jiffy mix = 50/50 + lime, no need to mix anything . just pasteurize it .

Depends on what your going to spawn with.

Spawn ratio is 10 to 1...anything less is better and can colonize faster.
