Bottom Layer?
    #3249429 - 10/12/04 11:22 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I plan to case 5 of my 10 cakes. Should I make a bottom layer of verm/coco coir (or just verm?) or should I leave the bottom layer out completely? I've seen some great casings with great flushes and some utilize a bottom layer while others do not. What's the verdict? Thanks.

Theres a question in the FAQ about using a bottom casing layer or not. It goes into the pros/cons of each.....

I have yet to do a casing, so I have no experiential input, but I will be doing just a bottom vermiculite layer.
