What happens if you don't case a casing?
    #2119608 - 11/18/03 01:44 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Due to Homedepot/Lowes not stocking vermiculite anymore I've found myself in a bit of a pickle. I've got a tub full of compost like 95% colonized and can't find anything to case it with....any suggestions?

Try looking at a nursery for some vermiculite. That's where I've seen it before.

They sell oyster shell at pet stores? What section would it be in?

Small nurseries have vemiculite, the nursery near me knows me because I always go there for supplies, I need to start disguising myself just in case.

You should disguise yourself as a mushroom.

it's sold as a calcium supplement for bird feed. you'll probably find it in small boxes in the section where they have bird seed.

Do you need any lime with that coco/oyster shell mix? Also you can get LARGE amounts of oystershell in the fish dept of a pet store. Used as a substrate for salt water tanks.

Goto Wal-Mart and get some jiffy mix. It is already pre-mixed 50/50+. I swear by it. Maybe one day you'll see me in an ad saying something like "Jiffy Mix helps grow the biggest shrooms I've ever seen!". But then again I live in my own little chocolate world.

Special university developed blend of pure sphagnum peat moss and horticultural grade vermiculite for starting and maintaining seedlings and cuttings.
I havent tried that stuff yet but i have seen it. Anyone else have good luck with it?

I've had great success with straight coir from the pet store.

Haven't tried jiffy, but I've heard good things.

Whatever you do, get a casing on that mofo
or expect a shitty flush.

Yup not having a casing layer gives shitty flushes. My clone reports 1/4oz dry flushes from 4 pound casings with no casing medium added.

At petstores (petco anyway) they also sell a product called Vita-sand, which is like 99% pure calcium carbonate. It's in the reptile section, comes in all kinds of nifty colors.

Exactly...You can also get it at the local co-op, 7 bucks for this 50 pound bag

you dont need any form of PH buffering with coco coir,crushed oyster shells or otherwise.
i'm not alone in this way of thinking....try it and you'll see what i mean.

One vermiculite was discovered to contain asbestos and now... it is getting bad publicity.

my friend also used jiffy mix for her casing layer. she's had good luck with it and says she likes that it's pre-mixed, and it's strong enough for a man, but pH-balanced for a woman.
