My first grow...
    #2915066 - 07/22/04 08:28 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

failed. Used WBS from shop, when PC'd some of the grains make a really slimy ucky goo (have to soak/simmer to get rid of, I didn't). So most jars stoppped colonising at like 25%, and if opened smelled like rotten apples. The ones that almost fully colonised I ended up opening and salvaging the colonised substrate. I made two small casings, verm bottom, straight grain middle, peat/verm top.

Didn't fruit... I think I know why now. Do grains HAVE to be mixed with an inert water holding substance (verm etc.)?

Please say yes... I'll be more confident about my upcoming grow if you do :smile:

(Upcoming grow is straight french millet, MUCH NICER to work with, no goo and sooooo shakable!)

no grains can be cased by themselves but i think you are looking to do the rez-effect tek if you want to add verm into the grains to increase water holding capacity when casing. Sounds like your problem was with the prep of the birdseed last time. good luck on your next attempt
