Some casings more contam resistant than others??

In your experience, do some casing layers resist contams better than others? If so which ones? Thanks.

Straight verm obviously... other than that it depends a lot on what kindof coir you use, or whetever casing type you decide to have. It also depends on how you prepare it, etc. For a first time casing, just maybe use straight verm, never really noticed it being worse than any other casing. For verm to contam you essentially have to crap in it or something.

So would a 50/50 verm and coir be pretty resistant? I've had success with jiffy mix but I have to work pretty hard to keep the web at bay, and I was just wondering if something would be easier. Thanks.

IM(Friend's)E, 50/50 coir is contam prone, but others don't seem to have any trouble. I've seen straight verm last through like 8 flushes on straw/poop, and verm/coir usually goes bad before then. Again, though, this is just what I have observed. Many casings are discussed here, but coir/verm seems to be the favorite, so give it a shot.

  Never used anything else than a coir/verm casing layer and so far, most of the times I get contamination signs after the second flush.  Since I'm most of the time very anxious about starting a new casing, I never try to fight the contam so I clean some space in the terrarium :laugh:
