coir and verm ph too high?
    #3719822 - 02/02/05 05:39 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

i just did a casing of 50/50 verm and coir, and i just read a post saying that the ph of those 2 are high and some crushed limestone or other things would be needed to lower the ph is this true or will it be fine? :confused:

The PH of coir comes pretty neutral out of the package, you don't need to adjust it.

Yeah, I just learned something new too, "use horticultural" hyd. lime, the other won't grow.
Now I'm real confused. I thought I was just gonna use Jiffy mix. Wrong

ya i was reading the 50/50plus tech and part of it doesn't make any sense...why would you put moist verm on the bottom not sterilized, but it sais that you should sterilize the 50/50 mix on top. that makes no sense to me. why would you only sterilize the top half of the casing?

mmm, I sterilize all my verm. anyway, 'specially for a bottom layer, I'm just tryin' to get the "earth" to a comfortable place for my myc to live :smile:
I think coco is ok to use with eggshells and hyd. lime. But, peat definitely needs oyster and lime...

both eggshells and oystershells are calcium. its only that peat is more acid then coco coir. so needs more ph buffering

buy garden calcium! Mine is for 2 kg for 20m.sq. Thats like 200 grams a square meter. It dont burn the myc but its a good buffer.
