TMC's casing measurements wrong?
    #3743688 - 02/07/05 01:59 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

On page 132 of TMC it says :

FORMULA 1
peat : 4 parts
Limestone flour : 1 part
Limestone grit : 1/2 part


Page 210 of GG&MM says:
10 units peat moss
1 unit calcium sulfate
1 unit calcium carbonate (aka limestone flour)

I know the 10:1 peat:limestone flour is right so whats up with TMG's measurements?

4 to 1 IME is way overkill, it won't hurt anything but it will waste resources IMO. I use 1tbs. long term buffer per qt. of casing mix and have gone 7-8 flushes many times without any problems. Just my own experience. :wink:

I've used chalk, powderized eggshell and oystershell flour.
