60coir/40 verm or 60verm/40coir?
    #1239314 - 01/22/03 11:01 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Hello,

I'm thinking ahead to how i'm going to make my casing layer for my colonized poo. I was told that if you have a 60/40 mix of coir and verm that I wouldn't need the lime added for ph balance! So which is it 60coir/40verm or 60verm/40coir ?

Peace

If I just used straight Coir would the ph be fine, or would I have to add additional stuff like lime or whatever?

You can use plain Coco Coir...I used to use plain Coco Coir with out anything else.

I just prefer using 60 Verm/40 Coco Coir now.

Less contams and cheaper to make.

I was just recently able to aquire coir bricks.  Is contam a problem with it? I thought coir was non nutritious so contam wouldn't be a problem.
Would you recommend sterilizing roadkill?

That's fine man, I'd like to know that myself!

Should I sterilize my casing layer of coir? Could I pausterize it? I was thinking of just throwing it in the microwave for 10 minutes.

Peace

If you get the Coco Coir too wet you will get contams.

No I wouldn't sterilize it.

I microwave mine for 5 minutes....stirr it up good....add more water if needed.
Microwave it again for another 5 minutes....leave it in the microwave to cool.
After it has cooled down....I spray the air with Lysol....wash my hands in anti-bacterial soap.
Put the substrate container on the counter....pull the casing material container out of the microwave.
Squeeze some by hand to see the moisture level of the Verm/Coco Coir.
Make sure its the right moisture and spread a level amount of casing material over the substrate....and then cover both containers.
