Straw Q
    #2747774 - 05/30/04 09:56 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

How many people add vermiculite to straw casings? Could this maybe eliminate the need to dunk a straw casing which is more succeptable to contamination anyway and help promote a decent second flush? Would it just be too much water off the bat? Any experiences?

Most people either use 50/50 peat moss/vermiculite or coco coir/vermiculite. Either is sufficient to support good flushes.

No, I meant with the straw itself not the casing layer.
