Help: New Casing mix?
    #3160968 - 09/21/04 06:44 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I am going to use the 50/50 verm and peat moss casing mix, but while at the garden store I noticed another mix.  It was called a Seed Starter.  The mixture composed of vermiculite, peatmoss, perlite, pumic, and washed sand.  I'm not sure of the ratio of the mixture, but it was a dark color.  It looked like alot of peat moss less verm, and small amount os perlite added. 
So my big question is would this make a good casing layer?  Would it be BETTER than the peatmoss/verm mix??  If it could be used as a casing layer it would be alot more convenient than mixing up the peatmoss and verm on my own.  Another thing I noticed was that in one of the bags a cluster of yellow mushrooms were growing in it! :mushroom2:  lol  Could that mean that this might even be a good growing substrate to innoculate :syringe:?  I would greatly appreciate anyone's help on this.

Thanks

miracle grow f'n sucks, and those yellow mushrooms are very common in mg's soil ( they are super poisonous), also popular are fungus gnats and all kinds of other crawlers, thanks miracle grow. get peat and verm, sterilize and mix yourself, it will be better.

look for jiffy mix.

Its premade 50/50 casing, although it can be hard to find, depending on where you live.
