straight vermiculite *or* 50/50 (verm/coco coir)?
    #1787353 - 08/07/03 04:37 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

When casing, will there be a noticable difference in yield between using straight vermiculite and using a 50/50 (verm/coco coir) mix which is pH balanced with hydrated lime?

This guy I know has used coir/verm w/ some lime (mysterious exact measurements really) w/ good results. Search for the amount of lime you need and you'll be good.

Yeah -- I certainly think there would be a difference. Straight vermiculite sucks, IMO.

You need very little lime with coir.

Go with a proper 50/50 or 60/40 with lime. It's hard to tell moisture content with straight verm.

I was under the impression that you didn't need a ph buffer with coco coir. I thought ph was only a problem with peat moss.
