Cottonseed meal same as Flax seed? Also Q about oyster shell
    #1496392 - 04/26/03 06:56 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Trying to go with Hawk's redipes for substrate and casing... Couldn't find Flax seed meal; will Cottonseed meal work the same? Also, couldn't find crushed oyster shells; will "diatomaceous earth" work the same? It is sold as insect killer and is made of "90% silicone-based sea shells and inert ingredients" (btw I think it kills bugs by scraping or slicing them) Many thanks for any info on this or my previous question.

If you are using the "diatomaceous earth" to add body to the casing mix then it should work. It will not have the pH buffering capabilites of crushed oyster shell.
