Casing Base question
    #3799333 - 02/18/05 06:15 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

hi all!
today at the local superstore i picked up a box of Hartz "Gravel 'n Grit" digestive aid for birds. I'm curious as to if i can use this to basify a masing mixture? the back of the box says:
"Nutrition Facts:
Calcium (mix) 0.01%
Calcium (max) 0.10$
phosphorus (min) 0.05%
Ingredients: Gravel, Calcium Carbonate, Sorbolite Clay"

So could i use this? what is Sorbolite clay, and would the phosphorus be potentially harmful/helpful to the mecelium or shrooms themselves?
BTW, my casing mix is verm/cococoir in about a 50/50 ratio. thanks for any feedback.

you should be able to find a better source of calcium carbonate at a pet store,
if not, simply hit Office depot and pick up some white chalk. The stuff you're
interested in using is 90% other crap thats just not needed and could have
detrimental effects on the growing mycelium
