are you using 50/50? peat has a lower PH than coir, so a buffer helps a little more. its not a huge deal it will still work. the buffer will help on the 2nd and 3rd flushes to keep the acidity down.

thanks man . i was just worried that i wouldn't yeild my potential without the hydrated lime as a buffer.yeah, i'm using 50/50. that is what it says to do in the teks, so i am going that route. home depot would have to order the buffer and that would take a week and my cakes MUST come out lest i get mucho overlay, you know? one of my cakes is overlaid here's a pic. what do you think, overlay? i think it is, but i could be wrong.

You can use calcium carbonate (crushed up limestone) as a substitute for lime.
