peat moss as growing medium
    #378492 - 08/25/01 01:54 PM (16 years, 29 days ago)

would it not be almost completely sterile and fully productive to use plain peat moss as the growing medium? Just use fresh peat moss in a
sterilized tupper ware container and inoculate with syringe, should it work? all responses r greatly appreciated

if you're trying for the first time.... don't experiment, go for the sure-fire methods -- MMGG or PF Tek (...almost the same).

peace out!

NO it would not work moss has no nutritional value and is very acidic
by time you got the ph figured out to balance it out your jars would be screwed

I was low on verm one time and substituted half of the verm in a pf tek method with peat worked very well. actually colonized faster. Been doing that mix ever since and have used soy flour instead of brf. good luck.

Zippity freakin doo dah
