calcium carbonate is safer, if you can get it. you can use lime alone, but you'd do well to get some pH strips or something.

if you use lime alone, maybe 5% of the total volume. if you can get calcium carbonate, another 10-15% of this.

good luck dude!

Since peat is acidic it is highly recommended to raise the pH.
bacterias like acidic conditions and shrooms grow better on a slightly over 7 pH

with a base (see CaCO3 (stone lime) and Ca(OH)2 (lime))
I would not use a strong base since the pH can go sky up.

I would leave it like that
It's not a really big deal but next time use some lime and
see if there is a difference
