50/50+ simple question
    #3802490 - 02/19/05 04:53 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

i'm going to prepare a casing mix using the 50/50+ formula, that is (tell me if i'm wrong): equal amounts (by volume) of peat and verm, then add to the total a 15% by volume of powdered shells.
i'm planning to mix the dry ingredients first, and make a lot of it and store it dry. then i'll add water right when i need it. is there anything wrong in this method? some say you have to mix the ingredients right before using them, but they mean mixing with water, if i mix dry ingredients and leave it dry i will be able to store for years without using, it must be just like storing verm alone or peat alone, am i right?

Unless the ph balanace gets stronger over time i think that it'd be fine. And btw, I use random amounts, Pin pointing how much works best for you is always a good way to do things. Unless one way you do it IS the best way :smirk:

I think it'd be ok but I don't see why you'd want to, just my .02, gl
n wait for a 2nd opinion just to be comlpetly sure, i may be wrong on this one
