Casing Ratios
    #1889937 - 09/07/03 01:42 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

My friend was wondering if someone could link him or tell him the proper casing ratios. Like, how much vermiculite layer on bottom for how much substrate. He heard the layer on top should be about 1/4 the substrate but he isn't sure. He wants to start a popcorn casing but wants to know the correct ratios. Thanks on his behalf.

Vermiculite layer on the bottom dooesn't matter. On the top my friend uses 1/2'' for normal casings and 3/4'' for thick casings (anything over 3'')

All this info is in the faq. You should be able to find it without somebody having to dig it up for you.

Like dude said, there's no rule set in stone for bottom layers, or even top layers. For bottom my F use about 3/4-1", and for top they say to use 1/4 of substrate (like you heard) but sometimes my friend uses less if the substrate layer is very thick.
