Verm only casing layer?
    #1614924 - 06/06/03 04:52 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

HI all...

A friend of a friend was wondering what his best route of execution would be. He got it in his head to spawn brf 1/2 pints to poo and case. The question is about the casing layer. If he can't get coco coir to do a nice 50/50 or 60/40 would plain ol' verm be beneficial over no casing layer? Also should a casing layer be applied for the first flush(i.e. after 100% colonization) or should he wait untill the second flush to case?

Also he heard that crushed/powdered egg shells can be used in addition to a 50/50 casing in help of balancing pH. Is this true and does it work like oyster shell or lime? :confused:

I did plain verm casing and it worked fine. Probably couldve worked better if I knew what i was doing but it worked none the less.
