What works better for casing? What are some different qualities?

I dont have plain vermiculite, all I have right now is some compost, coco coir and 50/50+. And of course the supplies to do it with. If a knowledgable person were to choose between coir and 50/50+ which one would he pic?

I think coir is more contam resistant than verm, but verm has better moisture retaining properties. The casing experts I've read say that the mix is the most desirable, along with some quicklime and oyster shell added to keep the pH up.

Roadkill's tek in the link above is what my friend is currently trying. He'll let me know how it goes :smile:

SO what you're saying is I can mix coco coir and 50/50+ to make a 50/25/25 (coir,peat moss, vermiculite) Would that have the best of both qualities? I have a few large zip-lock bags of 50/50+ so I'm thinking I'll go with that, I've had a casing sitting in the terreriam for a few months (50/50+) with no contamination, so I'm not too worried about that.

Does neutralizing the pH with the oyster shells really make that much of a difference?
