question on casing mix material amount
    #3068514 - 08/30/04 11:55 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I want to use a 25% Vermiculite and 75% Coco Coir casing mix. Does this mean that I use 25% of verm in volume and
75% Coco Coir in volume? Ex. I use 1 cup of verm and 3 cups of Coco Coir

Also, should I add calcium carbonate or no? Does it even matter?

Yes to volume. Not sure on the other part. It'll do fine with just verm and coco coir though.

Eat more string cheese. It's good for you.

I like oyster shell over calcium carbonate powder, this gives the mix a better texture.  not as much of a buffer, but you don't really need all that much buffering with coir/verm from my understanding.  Good luck. :smile:
