Micracle Grow Moisture Control Potting mix as casing mix?
    #3460108 - 12/07/04 04:23 PM (12 years, 11 hours ago)

Hey all,
I just recieved a 2lb bag of this Micracle Grow Moisture Control Potting Mix from a friend (0.18-0.10-0.10), and was wondering if it would be an acceptable thing to use as a casing mix. I dont have jiffy mix or anything, so i was wondering maybe this would work?
Here are the ingrediants:
50-60% sphagnum peatmoss, coconut husk fibres(coir pith), composed bark fines, perlite, wetting agent, and fertilizer.
Total Nitrogen 0.18%
- .06% ammoniacal nitrogen
- .04% Nitrate Nitrogen
- .02% urea nitrogen
- .06 water insoluble nitrogen
phosphate .10%
solubale (k2o) .10%

Does this seem like a good mixing agent with a vermiculite mix? I noticed it had perlite in it and such, but from looking in the bag i dont see much of it, so i dont know. Anyone have expirence on this?

And if so how long should i pasturize it in the oven and at what temp?

thanks guys, if it works ill post pics in the grow log.

as an update, i think im going to try this as a casing layer with say one or two cakes, maybe a 3:1 verm:potting mix and see what happens.
I'll pasturize it in the oven for about an hour and see what happens....

let ya all know.

FYI the fert pellets will inhibit growth and burn the myc where they are located (everywhere). I have used it after removing the fert pellets (PITA) and it worked pretty good. BTW I used it without adding any verm. GL

update:
made a casing with like 3 cakes (about an inch or two deep with crumbled cakes), casing layer consists of the miracle grow (with the fert pellets taken out by hand (yellow round thingies)) and vermiculite which comes out to be about 40% miracle grow 60% verm.
All wet and ready to go, so we'll see how it goes...
updates in the future.

Came back today from vacation in montreal, some mold may be growing (green mold), just a tiny tiny tiny bit on the top, looks to be where the woodchip part of the potting mix was, so i seperated out the pieces best as possible and repsrayed with h2o/peroxie solution... we'll see how it goes.

Green mold was the culprit of my potting soil casing destruction.

Miracle gro is prolly worse....more nutes means more contams.
