Canadian Gold as verm. / Help please
    #3172041 - 09/23/04 10:34 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Its called canadian gold and its potting mix but it has vermiculite IN it, but it also has the following:
Canadian Sphagnum peat moss
perlite
vermiculite
wood charcoal
wetting agent
and lime

Would this work as an alternative to Vermiculite or should I just go buy some straight vermiculite from somewhere? Suggestions on this would be great :smile:
Doesnt matter either way, I just want to know which is best for growing my mushies  :sun: The canadian gold stuff I have here is just more convenient but I just want to know which would be best for my mushies :rasta:

sounds like it would be good to use as a casing layer, but it deffinetly would not work in place of strait verm in the pf tek if your doing pf go out and but some strait verm and save that stuff for casings though im not sure about how well perlite would work in a top casing layer. and what exactly do you mean by wetting agent??

Actually lime is used to adjust the ph, many people use it in casings.

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

A drop of dish soap works great as a wetting agent. A wetting agent is something that break the surface tension of liquids/water allowing the water/liquid to penetrate the surface. GL
