Tums

AFOAF suggested that tums (antacid) could be used to buffer a verm/peat casing rather than hydrated lime. It is calcium carbonate, does anyone have an idea of the appropriate ratio? it appears that an extra strength tums tablet contains 750mg.

You know, I needed some Tums last night and didn't have any, lol. Since I still do not have any, what are the other ingredients listed? I am sure there are some that may not be good for mushroom mycelium, but then again, I don't know. Perhaps there is a cheap generic version that may have less ingredients (perhaps no flavoring or coloring as well), you may check...

Or, you could try chalk...

Can one buy egg shells in bulk? Is the chemical makeup of egg shells mostly calcium carbonate or are other minerals involved in a quantity that may provide useful as well? I have never tried egg shells strictly because I don't eat that many eggs. :d
