Substitute to Verm
    #2787500 - 06/12/04 12:44 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Are there any substitutes to the dry verm layer to prevent airborne contams, etc? Verm is a bit hard to come by here and I was hoping to start an outdoor patch before it gets too late around here (winter).

Tyvek cut from envelopes from any post office. A lil bit of poly-fill in the holes from most craft stores or most dept stores in the pillow section.

You can use growool aka rockwool. If it's slab format, tear it up to small pieces.

You can use the Poly-fill tek. Its just polyester plugging one hole in the center of the lid, used with grain jars mostly.

Jiffy-mix, seed starter. It is a blend of moss, verm and the PH is adjusted for you. I have had less contam. problems with Jiffy mix then with verm. You do have to be carefull not to over load the jars. If you pack it too tight it will take forever to colonize.
Stay away from anything that has added fertilizers.
