hydrated lime substrate ratio?
    #1702471 - 07/10/03 02:25 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I've been searching everywhere and can't find an answer,need to know how much hydrated lime to use.my casings consist of verm,1 or 2 half pint jars of spawn,straw and poo,with a coco coir casing layer.my containers vary in size but are probly all the same in volume, but i can tell you how big the containers are,about (widthxlengthxdepth)

some are 4x4x4
and 7x7x2,and7x7x5,i do plan on going bigger in the future.bread pans 10x12x6

i like to make them deep as possible at least 4 inches?
I hope this is enough information for a good answer, any help would be greatly appreciated thanx

hydrated lime is not necessary with coir if using peat moss here is the ratio
well for 50/50 verm peat i use 3 cups verm 3 cups peat and about a teaspoon of hydrated lime brings ph to about 8 very strong stuff

There is no exact answer to your question. You will need to acquire a pH testing kit or device. Add enough lime (if necessary) to bring your casing pH to a level of 7 to 7.5.

ok dog i see what mean,lets just say the meter read's 6.5 and you want to bring the ph up to about 7.5 or so would a teaspoon do the trick?

if i had a scale to go by as to how much lime it takes to bring up that ph
