Jiffy Mix
    #1383444 - 03/17/03 10:14 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

Here's one I found myself pondering in the Lowes Hardware. No Jiffy Mix in stock,so I am looking for the next best thing,maybe put it together myself(I did),but it started me thinking,there's a product with fertilizer in there.I wanted to ask an opinion on this one before I went back to get it and experiment.Would this help fruiting,or would it make me ill? I love to experiment,but I dont want to poison myself.

But poisoning yourself is great fun!

A friend has found a great replacement for premade Jiffy Mix. Its called Miracle Grow Moisture Control Potting Mix. Its a pH adjusted mix of coir, peat, a bit of composted pine bark, and a bit of perlite. That friend used it for a double-ended casing on cakes to try it out, and they went crazy for it. The growth was immediately rhizomorphic reaching across it. The only thing it doesn't have is vermiculite, and you could mix that in yourself.

He found it in the gardening section of Wal-Mart while looking for vermiculite. He came back happy with this, but sad because the vermiculite wasn't in stock.

Jiffy mix is a 50/50+ casing layer, look that up - and the formula wont poison you. This isn't advanced, though - so i'm closing this.
