straight verm casing sucks!!!
    #1448382 - 04/11/03 12:52 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

i know alot of you peeps said "dont go straight verm" but i did just to try the casing thing and get a feel for it. Now i have moved on to bigger and better things. I will be doing a 50/50+ tek i belleve in about a good 2 weeks once these jars fully colonize. Man u know before i got 90 grms. wet on a single verm casing.

hope to do a little better than that on a 50/50. i would be happy with 100w/10d gms.

i agree with you rob, i got the same thing, but the 50/50 wihtout the crushed oyster shells or limestone (which i have no idea where to find if you can help me out there) was DEFINETELY better. from one 1/2 pint and 1 pint on first flush i got 20 dry g's.

My first casing ever (I'm not sure where I read to do this) was a layer of moist vermiculite, crumbled cakes on top of that, then a layer of about 40/60 Vermiculite/unsterilised potting mix.

Worked great.

Calcium carbonate (CaCo3-) is the ingredient in crushed oyster shell that you're seeking...however, in crushed oyster shell it breaks down much slower than the powder/flour form of CaCo3-.

one thing i want to ask, is that normally a pH buffer consists of A acid/base, plus a salt of th at acid/base...now of CaCo3- is to be used as the salt..what is the base? or if CaCo3- is the Actual, base, what is the salt thereof? i know that HCo3- is a weak acid, therefore CaCo3- should be the salt of the conjugate base, but that means that lime flour would be the actual base...anyone know what the molecular makeup of the aforementioned substnance is?

Calcium Carbonate dissociates to Ca2+ and (CO3)2- Hydrogen ions from the acidic peat are neutralized by the base (CO3)2- + 1H+----> (HCO3)1-. Thus the acidic H+ is neutralized by the CO3 2- ion increase the pH to more alkaline levels.

Just remember that what you are doing is HIGHLY illegal. If you get busted growing in your parents house . . . THEY could lose their house forever. Don't tell ANYONE you are growing and don't take the shrooms in an environment that is not COMPLETLY safe. If people want to know where you got the shrooms from, tell them you picked them. By growing in your parents house you are making a choice to put them at great risk without their knowledge or consent, so don't do anything stupid.
