can you mix vermiculite with substreight in a caseing?
    #2137767 - 11/26/03 02:24 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

could you mix moist steril vermiculite with your grain, straw, poo ...... to increase the water content, then use this as substrait in a caseing? the Ver/grain ratio would be approx 1 part V to 3 parts grain.

when i do my casing's..i usually bake some vermiculite..with a little water added to it...mix together a couple jars..put a lid on the container...put back in my incubator for a couple days and let it re colonize a bit..and then put into my terrarium to grow

im sure you could do it..i would add to much...but it does help with water content

I add a percentage of sterile verm to all my bulk substrates, it's not absolutely neccessary though, but if it makes you feel good???? :grin:

i think half verm works great if you are spawning compost. a good recipe is 8 cups compost + 8 cups verm + 3.5-4 cups h2o loaded into filter patch bags. spawn with 1 pint of colonized grain

what i am thinking is that this is my first grow and the grain is working better tjhan the cakes, but since it is my first grow im not gonna shoot for the start (spawn to poo/straw) so i want to take a quart of colonized wheat grain and then add 1/3 quart wet vermiculite to add moisture then use the whole thing as substrate and case with jiffy mix. the thought is that it will add both bulk and water to the grains.
