can't find the required materials for casing where I live
    #2329749 - 02/13/04 09:39 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Hello, it's my first experience in growing and I can't find the proper materials for casing, all I could find is : fine peat (and not coarse) and fine vermiculite. I live in a small island and everything is a little hard to find here. Can I do anything with that ? Anybody knows of a casing solution for rye substrate that would be easy to find ? thanks for your help, Pedro

Vermeculite is becoming more scarece in local markets, ask you local garden center or home depot to order it for you, they can and usualy will

You?re OK with the fine peat and verm, that?s all I can get in my hometown and did get nice flushes.

You can substitute rye for millet, wheat, corn, brown rice flour. I think almost any bird food you can find will do the trick.

Try coir if you cannot get peat. Coir is a great casing material. Try a pet store. I believe it is called Bed-a-Beast? But I have never purchased it there. From what I hear many places carry it.

coco coir can be found in just about any pet store. if there's not a pet store you can get to, you can order it. it's cheap to ship. the verm you're talking about would work also, but don't use the peat unless you've got some lime or something.

you can find coir on ebay cheaper than at pet stores. IMO

thanks very much to all of you ! I'll try again with the pet stores but I live in a small island of the coast of Europe and we don't find here the same stuff in the shops than with you in the USA, that's the thing. for example limestone is unknown in all the garden centers here, I?ve been looking in all of them. But maybe the coco...

Where are you from? I?m from Europe too, and if your name is Pedro, we could even be from the same country. So, if you want I can help you.
