I don't think you really need a bottom casing layer. I have never used one.

jury's still out on this - see the faq for pros and cons. i don't bother, due to the wasted space - i want the entire floor-to ceiling filled with substrate-casing-mushrooms-few spare cm !

with casings i was thinking;
shit, why does my foaf put 50/50+ on the bottom layer of his casings?
plain verm is probably better for the BOTTOM casing layer- holds more moisture.
so thats what hes gonna try nextime.

Useful if you want to flip your casing over on later flushes.

otherwise.. a waste.
