Coir :: quantity used for casing ?
    #1303825 - 02/12/03 10:27 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I was wondering ....

I have a block of Forest Bed [I'm assuming it's the same size as the Bed-A-Beast].......

I'll be doing a 60/40 mixture with verm/coir

and I have a bread tin that I'll be using to hold the substrate.

Approximately, how much of the Coir should be gone after I use it to do one casing layer?

I have no idea how much coir to use.

Doesn't the coir expand? When doing the verm/coir mixture, is that assuming the coir is dry?

thanks!

You would break off a very small peice of the brick and add hot water til it expands.
Don't use too much...Coco Coir expands alot.

I also use Forest Bed brand...they are the same.

I'm making up some casing material tonight.
I'll be taking pictures and making a 60/40 Verm and Coco Coir pictorial tek.
Check back in the morning.

Is 60/40 , the amount of dry coir to verm, or wet coir to verm?

thanks for the help!
