Using Caltrate for calcium carbonate
    #3769256 - 02/12/05 01:15 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I can't find pure calcium carbonate anywhere. Can I use Caltrate, which is calcium carbonate with small quantities of fillers, binders, glycerin etc. Or should I just skip the calcium carbonate altogether? I'm thinking of just using a 50/50 vermiculite peat moss mix for casing.

if you eat snails, their shells are also made out of calcium carbonate. if egg shells work then so would snail shells and sea shells too of course.

Could I use dolomite lime for pH control-it's what weed growers use to prevent soil from becoming too acidic.
