forgot to add CaCo2 in casing soil - fatal mistake?
    #3019554 - 08/18/04 07:11 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I guess the topic title says it all. It happened that I forgot to add grounded natural chalk to my 50/50 peat-moss/vermiculite casing soil.
Dis I make a big mistake, so big that it would affect the growth of mushrooms catastrophically?

i guess i should wait and see what happens, but ey, i need an answer just to know what to expect and if i should start making a new growing cycle.

tnx for answers!

Not buffering will still get ya some nice flush :wink: It will just not last as long before it "sours" and trich raises it's ugly head. Tip: make up some lime water and mist the casing with that, hydrated lime works great for this BTW. GL

I had a peatmoss / coco coir mix that came already bagged, i believe the store owner told me it was around 7 pH? however thats actually going off the memory of my pothead friend who was with me at the time. The bag is in german/dutch and i can't figure out a # to call and ask.. Is too alkaline of a casing WORSE than too Acidic of a casing?

Coir has a wide range anywhere from 5.7-6.5 naturally and peat is in the 4.7 range so that mix will be acidic unless buffered but even then the myc is not consuming it only going thru it on it's way to the surface so there is a range of acceptance by the myc.

I think you will be ok
If it turns bad just scrap off all the old casing and recase it
