DOES the %of coco to verm in the 60/40 really matter?
    #1440573 - 04/08/03 09:47 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

i just scraped off some cococoir brick, put in some water, let soak....then i just threw in like 2 random cups of vermiculite and mixed that shit up....im sure its not actually 60/40%, but does it matter?

some areas of my casing have bigger patches of cococoir while others have some verm in there

No
Visually you want a little more Verm than Coco Coir...helps retain water better.
The Coco Coir makes it easier to tell when the moisture is off...the color change will let you know if its too dry.

Mix it up better in the bowl!

Get a cheap blender from somewhere like a sallys or a store ending in mart, and use that. much more effective than hand mixing and not half as messy...

ummm...mixing casing material in a blender...no.

mix with a big spoon or fork and you're fine.

kramer mixes his casing till its good and mixed up gently folding it over itself again and again and then mixes a little more.

My preference is to get my hands in there and get fucking dirty.

Become the mushroom, feel what it feels :laugh:

Is not a big issue , but to little verm may cause coco coir to pack down too much especialy if using the real fine,l fiberous stuff .
In the future break up the coco , soak it over night , put in strainer to get rid of excessive water . Measure 10 parts of the coco , then measure 4 parts of verm , then mix up real good , add water if needed , put through sterilization process , let cool and use as normal .
Good Luck
