Ph with calsium carbonate
    #2472315 - 03/25/04 09:13 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I have made a casin layer by mixin 1peat+1verm+1/4 calsiumcarbonate and now the casings myce doesn't colonize it. :tongue::crazy:Did I used too much or too less calsium carbonate.I thought the ph won't be more than 8 but now I think I'm wrong or am I supposed to wait more than 4 days ??And can I make a new layer and change it with the old one ?
Thanks

too much... if you have a PH tester then you need to add a little at a time and test as you go, waiting a few minutes after mixing to be sure...

also you want to be sure that you dont have too much water in the casing, it would be best to start over but you could always try an experiment in trying to save the substrate

Thanks ! so with calcium carbonate it's different than limestone because I used to use limestone for the layer and even a little too much wasn't over 8 ph...
