The Perfect store bought casing?
    #1584326 - 05/28/03 10:24 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

A friend of mine went shopping recently to Wal-Mart searching for the ever-so-popular JiffyMix. He couldn't find any of that but he did happen to find what seems to be the perfect pre made casing material from he's read. The packaging describes as follows:

Miracle Grow - Moisture Control Potting Mix
Contains AquaCoir
A unique blend of coconut fibers and peat moss that releases water slowly to help reduce "plant" stress

Contains:
50%-60% Sphagnum Peat Moss, Coconut husk fibers (coir pith), composted bark fines, perlite

Total Nitrogen....0.18%


From what he knows this sounds too good to be true. What do you think? He recently cased a dunked and crumbled B+ cake, about 4 weeks old, with this stuff and will have some pics soon.

well that's great if your willing for the extra cost-and you still have to adjust the ph level, because of the use of peat.

I bought some of that stuff too. I asked the same question on here not too long ago. Some people don't think it will work well. While others think it'd work fine. I haven't tried it though.

The perfect, no hassle, store bought casing is Vermiculite.

If you need big bags of it go to your local farm and feed store for 4 Cu Feet of the course stuff for around $12.00
