Charcoal as a substitute for Vermiculite
    #1397970 - 03/21/03 10:38 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

i'm not talking about barbecue coals, i mean the real black stuff from a wood fire. it's porous as hell, inert, readily available and cheap. has anyone ever tried this? do you think it would work?

I just posted about this a few days ago. Some people showed interest, but no one said if they had tried it or not. Believe it or not, I got the idea from MOE fruiting off of a burned cake. I think it would be worth while to try it out; my friend is planning on trying it out soon.

i was thinking about it... i think that charcoal is too brittle and would just disintigrate into a bunch of black mush as soon as it was wet and stirred...
