straw replacement for worm casting casing
    #3447423 - 12/04/04 10:11 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I am making a worm casting/ straw casing and was wondering if peat moss could be a relplacement for straw here. If, not would vermiculite or anything else be able to replace the straw.

NO PEAT. The pH of Canadian sphagnum peat generally ranges from 3.0 to 4.5.

Verm holds water well, but contains no nutes.

Chopped straw, compost, or aged manure could be added.
