the bottom and top layer.
    #2606745 - 04/27/04 03:57 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

my dog is going to case only using coco coir. He wants a bottom layer and a top layer. Now the quesion that the dog has is how much coco should he put on top of the substrates and as for the bottom layer does that have to be just as wet as the top layer? Also how much should he put in for the bottom layer.

The bottom layer can pretty much be eyeballed. Not real important how deep it is. Mainly there to supply some moisture to the casing but most important is that it's a toilet. The bottom layer gives the myc piss a place to go so it's not sitting in it.

You want the top layer to be 1/4 as thick as the substrate. So if you put in two inches of it give it 1/4 to a half inch of casing layer.  :wexican:

All creatures tremble when faced with violence. All creatures fear death, all love life. If we can only see ourselves in others, then how could we possibly hurt another creature?
