Casing layer efficiency-any preference?
    #2720882 - 05/24/04 12:27 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I've been debating whether to do a jiffy mix or coco coir/verm (60/40 mix) for my first casing layer. In terms of yield, # of flushes, ease of usage (do either need a buffer really? I've read several differing opinions.) I've read the FAQ's and did searches, but is anybody advocating one over the other? Would a buffer be necessary, or at least help yields on either one? Any help appreciated, thanks everybody.

I haven't tried peat yet(tho I just bought a bulk bag of it for $20 canadian to give it a try) but coir is the best casing material I have worked with. I use 75/25 coir/verm

btw even tho I havent' had a flush from peat yet I can tell just from adding water that it dosen't hold as much water as coir

I took some advice from Doc34 and went with straight coco coir. There is no need for a ph stabalizer and it holds little to no nutritional value. And look what I got today off of one cased BRF 1/2 jar(1st flush)!!!!!

I dont even use a bottom layer.I have used verm before,but not coir as a bottom layer.

I just straight case WBS and apply coir as my top layer,works great.
