info on casing mixture
    #3973506 - 03/26/05 08:01 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I was at a garden center today buying my perlite and vermiculite and i saw a bag of potting soil mix that i wonder if it could be used as a casing layer. There were two different kinds: one was composed of peat/sphagnum moss, perlite, hydrated lime, and plant food(?), the other was the same but with vermiculite instead of perlite. Since this composition seems to be very similar to the recipes for the casing layer as ive read on this site, im wondering if i could just use this stuff as my casing layer and not bother making it myself. Anyone have any experience. Also, which one would be better, the one with perlite or vermiculite. Ive heard of some people putting some perlite in their casing layers for aeration, humidity, and moisture.

Definitely go with the verm mix soil, I can't really say much bout the plant food but everything else looks great. Plant food wouldn't do any harm I would think...

the first one sounds OK, but MAKE SURE there is NO fungicides in this mix. It could very well contain fungicides.

Ive used potting soil mixes with verm and perlite many times justpasturize and use a h2o2 mix in your hydrating water
Using h2o2 semms like you get way less contams in a 1st and 2nd flush
I never keep shit for a 3rd...but thats up to you ..good luck
