Straight Verm
    #3973869 - 03/26/05 09:43 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Can someone post some pics of there successful casings with just straight vermiculite? I never really see any pics of successful casing using just vermiculite.

i just did, i gots lots and lots of PESA. they have been fruiting for quite some time now. i'm betting some of the combo casings are better for nutrients and such. plain vermic works fine. (i dont have a camera)

you dont see many pictures because not many people that do use it pull good yields. It isn't any harder to mix in some peat moss or coir; the results are definetly worth it.

Most experianced growers dont use verm staright because it sticks to your fruits really bad...mix it with something else

Coir/Verm mixture is far better (IMHO)

its essential to buffer the pH of the casing. if you're using peat, more than likely, yes.

mycosupply.com tell lana she's sexy, she might give you a discount. You can pick up both lime and oyster shells there. IMO, together they work VERY well.

And peat based (50/50) casings are the best IME without a doubt. It all comes down to personal preference/results.
