Thanks.

my current casings have no buffer. I forgot to add them, they were my first casings so the yields werent anything spectacular. The buffer is to keep the ph up for future flushes. I think i read something about the ph of pete being in the 5 range. People usually buffer it up to 8. You could also just use coir/verm because it does not need to be buffered.

I've used straight 50/50 before and it was fine. I'm sure different peats vary in ph so i really dunno what to tell you besides give it a try unless you go get yourself a ph tester. Coir is very good also.  :goodluck:
