jiffy 50/50 mixture question
    #3967415 - 03/25/05 02:26 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

alright, in most of the tutorials for jiffy mix its 50% verm 50% peat moss, and then you add either lime or crushed oyster shells to balance the pH. Is it possible to not have such a pH that high without using oyster shells or lime? say like adding 75% verm 25% peat moss?
Would this stabilize the pH or do i still need lime/oyster shell?

Don't know for sure if it would be needed, but I would still add some sort of ph buffer.

if you dont wanna mess with pH to boot use 60/40 verm/coir check it out in casing teks

keep in mind that with every flush the acidity level will increase, so some oyster shell would still be helpful.

Since it has a high % of peat in it, you have to add a buffer. Otherwise, it will not do very well.
