casing WBS?
    #1485924 - 04/23/03 01:49 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

AFOAF wants to do some WBS casings and knows about 6T's tek but was also wondering what to use as a casing. Can he just us jiffy mix or just poop or does he HAVE to go all out and use straw AND poop?

Holler!

tell AFOAF to use a 50/50 Peat/Verm, that should do the trick.

peace

JIffy mix is a casing layer. You can use this to case your fully colonized substrate.

Poo as well as WBS are substrates. Poo will need to be spawned with something fully colonized, such as WBS.

Straw is extra.

Basically - spawn the WBS to poo, wait for it to fully colonize, then add a casing layer of jiffy. You can add straw to the poo mix, but not the jiffy mix. It's not necessary though.

hope that explains things.

It helps out a whole hell of alot actually. Now all my friend of a friend needs to get is some poo. I assume composted is ok? I can get it anywhere about this time of year for super cheap.

composted is not preferred, but yes it will work.. i believe. If you're using composted, it might lack nutes that are vital, and you might want to try adding straw. If you're going the composted route, give a few diff brands a try, then stick with what works. They wont all.
