Dried out casing?
    #2536533 - 04/07/04 09:10 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I was following the 60/40 vermiculite-coco coir tek, and after i heated the mixture up in the microwave it seemed pretty dried out. Isnt the point of a casing layer that it provides moisture? should i add moisture to it before putting it on top of the substrate?

Better put more water than only the filled-capacity amount when microwave sterilizing.

When you are done, you can add some water if needed.  I suggest you always keep a spray bottle of sterilized water in hand so you can spray your layer as needed.  Simply boil some tap water for 10-15 minutes, put in your spray bottle and let cool.

good luck! :wink:
