casing HELP!!!!!!
    #3106156 - 09/08/04 12:32 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I got a couple of questions about casing.... How much water should i put into the mixture (exact amounts preferably). Say i
mixed 3 cups of coco coir and 1 cup of verm....how much water would I need (in volume?)? Also... do u honestly have to sterilize your casing
mixture? If I used the microwave to sterilize the mixture, would the amount of moisture that the mixture had prior to being sterilized
be the same after sterilization aswell?

Generally with casing just mix in enough water so when you squeeze the mixture only a few drops leak out. And as far as sterilizing, you don't HAVE to but it really is a good idea. If your chamber is in a sterile envioment and your bags of peat,verm,coir or whatever haven't been sitting out open for weeks on end you might just be alright. But sterilizing is still a really good idea.
