Miracle-Gro Mix Question
    #1552426 - 05/15/03 09:36 PM (15 years, 13 days ago)

I was at Wal-Mart today, and saw Miracle-Gro "Moisture Control Potting Mix". It says that it contains coconut husk fibers(coir pith), sphagnum peat moss, composted bark fines, perlite, and fertilizer. Would this work ok as a casing material?

I think the fertilizer may kill that option. I think ferts have too much nitrogen.

No offense, but I've used it before just fine. Thai Lamai Beach I believe, used pf cakes as spawn. Cased into aluminum loaf pans, my friends dog actually has some going right now, so pics will be available soon.

You could use it probably ok, but really theres no need. You don't want your casing to be a nutritive layer, and chances are that it has NO WHERE NEAR the water retention level of even plain verm but definitely not verm/coir. So even if you could use it, why would you want to?
