how much shoul i use?
    #3218649 - 10/05/04 04:54 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

i bought some jars offline but they where the wrong size (6oz) but i decided not to send them back because that would take forever=so i wanted to know how much BRF and Vermiculite to use for a 6oz jar?
also do you think that using a mortar and pestle to grind brown rice into flower is good?

PF tek = 1 part BRF, 1 part water (though u should add a LITTLE more, cuz i find that vermiculite absorbs a lot, so u think u hav more volume of substrate than u really have.), 2 parts vermiculite

what you want on water content is to be able to squeeze the mixture and get a few drops come out (throw out the part you squeezed, BTW. it ruins the vermiculite's structure). you don't want a really wet mixture, but not too dry.

go into the growing mushrooms section and read up on the pf tek method under the beginner's section. you'll find the modified recipie in one of the teks.

i don't think a mortar and pestle will work well to get flour. get a coffee grinder. even decent blenders will do a better job.

by the way. :smile:

also used here alot:
IMO - in my opinion
IME - in my experience

i always just mix it up and have left-over stuff. i think it's more important to have the mixture right than to worry about wasting stuff.

no we can't
different verm holds diferent amounts of water...
moist NOT wet is the best advice...and mix well
:goodluck:
