I'm not a rocket scientist.........
    #2115745 - 11/17/03 11:51 AM (13 years, 23 days ago)

I just bought Crushed Oyster Shells, Playbox Sand (sterilized), Verimculite and Peat Moss. I have a casing recipe for all of this but it calls for me to measure it in liters. I don't have a way to measure in liters and as far as conversion,I am not a rocket scientist. How can I break this down to grams, pounds or even cups? BTW someone gave me a box of coco kawai (i know it is spelled wrong) should I use that?
Maybe someone out there has a better casing recipe for me to try.

50/50+ is really as good as anything else, half peat half verm w/ a little oyster shell thrown in. If you need info like metric conversion tables you should just look on google, since someone would probably have to do that themselves to give you the info.

A lite is just a little bigger than a quart. You could probably
get away with substituting that way.

How about that coco kawai (still spelled wrong) stuff. What should I do with that?

you can case w/ just peat, or just verm, or just coir if you want, they all do basically the same thing. If you want to substitute choir into your casing mix then go ahead, nobody cares.

so basically, as long as I use the right stuff, it really dosn't matter. I guess it's not "Rocket Science" after all.

are you referring to coco coir? You can make a casing layer with that, its 50/40 verm and the coco coir.

Yeah, yeah that's the stuff. Someone gave me a whole box of it and I didn't know what to do with it. I forgot how to re-hydrate it. Any insights?

hmmm... rehydrate rehydrate, thats a tricky one. What do you normally do to things you want to rehydrate? I'm not sure, but I imagine its the opposite of dehydrate.

Now, Now, lets not get sarcastic. That was a legitamate question about rehydrating. I wasn't sure. Better safe than sorry, I always say.
