How much does your “one” brick of coir weight?

dude, youre way over thinking it.

get your ratio of verm and coco that you feel comfortable with,
add water until its at field capacity, then  pasteurize it in a tamale steamer

Dude, I’m new to this that’s why there’s a thing called questions so I don’t fuck things up. People claim they know things and have no idea..... I’m here for experienced peoples thoughts.

Usually, people will resort to using quarts and not poundage.

Just a tip.

Also, to get what you are after, I would just use the elementary coir tek. It works great. Just do it in intervals so you're not trying to do the entire 10 pounds of coir at once.

Just :2cents:

I use one pound rye berry bags. Only reason I ask. Quarts to pounds scale says 10.4 pounds is 5 quarts.....seems like a little to much to me. Just seeing if anyone has done it by poundage before..

and im telling you youre over thinking it.

dont try to weight bulk stuff out. go by qts. weight is OVER THINKING it.

if you have 6 qt jars of spawn(on grain or WBS)
then youll want 6 or more qt jars of bulk sub

i usually did 60/40 sub:Spawn and had good success.

so thats 9 qt jars of SUB.
3qt of Horsepoo
3qt of Verm
3qt of Coco Coir

mix then all together until its at field capacity and then pasteurize it.

dont get so wound up dude
