Casing mixtures: any suggestions?
    #2714945 - 05/22/04 04:43 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I'm planning on casing for the first time, and haven't come to a conclusion on what to use for my casing layer. I was going to use jiffy mix, but I'm told there are pH problems related to it, and I don't know where to find coco coir (unless it's at walmart) because I live in a small college town. Anyways can anybody recommend a casing layer that is effective, and consists of relatively easy things to find? Thanks.

I've had good results (and suprisingly few contaminations) by mixing oak sawdust 1:1 with vermiculite. I've never seen anyone else using this method, but it worked well for me.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis
