Magash, how fine is "fine"?

As in, it works? So does 100% vermiculite.. :tongue:

But is it optimal? What have you found to be optimal?

You can use just verm. I would do a mix of verm and coco coir, go one step further and you can do a 50/50+ tek. You can also use coir alone. I have seen great harvests from just coco coir/verm though.

"I celebrate the Earth, my home, my mother, my grave, and as long as men are Man they must, if they would preserve the integrated being, do the same---[and preserve]--this rank casual hungry smelly sweaty lusting transitory body, my oozy pulpy liquid-bag-swollen body, bones, blood, hair glands, my bejeweled sex; I love and celebrate it all.  never to let men forget that they are animals as much as gods---that is one thing I shall say."

Coir works fine, the reason verm is added is it better holds in water. Only 30%verm (70% coir) is added because coir will dry out quickly. Straight coir can work but you'll need to keep it more humid and mist more. Plus the myc will colonized the casing layer quicker so you should probably fruit it a little sooner then your used to. Theres definatly a reason he adds verm normally (along with the rest of us that use 70/30) :smile: Good luck!
