how much casing mix do i need to buy?
    #2234597 - 01/11/04 11:51 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Well i've been trying to get a hold of micron magic to ask them, but i have yet to hear back from them about the e-mail i sent them several days ago... I was going to place an order for some other stuff with them but and i figured since there already going to be shipping me some stuff, might as well pick up some casing mix also.

My question is, will 1 gallon of 50/50 mix be enough to case 12 jars or should i go with the 3 gallons? The price really isn't the issue as it's only around $15, i just don't really want a ton extra sitting around.

thanks

if price doesnt matter, i would just go with the big bag, that way if something gets fucked up, you will have extra to take back to the ol drawing board with you... You can always have too much, but having too little means you probably have to go get more.

Are you having problems finding coir and verm in your area? I mean, it's so easy to prepare by yourself....

What stores sell Coir? i've found a huge bag of verm, but i cannot find coir or oyster shell! The stores we have in my town are like Home Depot and stuff, not to big of a selection.

thanks for the help!

i think you can get coir at most reptile supply stores as i guess they use it for a "flooring" of the terarrium. as for the oyster shell i have no idea, i was going to buy the pre-mixed casing mix from micron magik because i didn't feel like tracking all the stuff down and i was already going to be placing an order with them, as here in ohio most of that stuff won't be back around till spring.

I just buy bags of Jiffy Mix - it's already got verm, peat moss, and some lime to tweak the Ph to the right area. I just toss it into a bowl, get it a bit wetter than "field capacity" and nuke it for 5 minutes in the microwave. I then wait a while until it's cool and case...

It's worked really well for me, and you can find Jiffy Mix *everywhere* in convenient little bags.

oyster shell can be found in pet stores as a supplement for birds.
