cheap half- casing
    #1373372 - 03/13/03 05:26 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

if my friend just made a lower layer of moist vermiculite and a layer of broken up cakes on top of that would it work? or does he need the top layer for a casing? what exactly does the top layer do?

The top layer is what makes the casing a casing in the first place. It retains moisture in order to help create more prolific, healthier flushes. A casing is not a casing if it does not have a casing layer (Tongue twister, eh?).

Yup. It's usually mixed 50/50 with peat moss or coco coir though.
