    #2841328 - 06/29/04 10:47 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Which is better or more contamination resistant - pure vermiculite casing layer or 50/50 peat/vermiculite with grounded limestone?

many ways, one I like is peat/verm/coir, even mix, 1 tbs of hydrated lime. Baked at 170 in cookie sheet with foil, nice and wet.
