top soil
    #1500644 - 04/28/03 02:36 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

i have some potting soil or top soil or some kind of god damn soil with "crystals to keep soil moisterized!" has anyone ever used something like this to make casings?
i was thinking about mixing it with sphangnum peat moss... or whatever... any suggestions?

this is what i was planning for casing


substrate on bottom
i have very fine vermiculite so i was going to sprinkle a thin layer of that ontop
then the moss/soil

i'm gonna do some ph tests now so i'll check back

thanks

You're better off mixing verm with that peat instead of topsoil.

My crazy cat has just tried this, she cased some birdseed and micro'd the soil, used a small layer ontop of the birdseed about 2 weeks later she had soooooo many pins, so much better than cakes...
