spawning BRF to castings
    #3976489 - 03/27/05 05:44 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Planning to spawn worm castings with PF cakes. As castings can condense and become muddy when used straight, it's recommended to use coir to amend this. I was wondering if the high porosity of the cakes would make the addition of coir to the substrate unnecessary, as the vermiculite present would provide aeration? Or would something like coir or verm already have to be present in the castings during pasteurization? Never used castings before so any guidance would be very much appreciated.

While I have never used castings, I have used grated PF cakes to spawn a number of different substrates. From my experience I would say to get the substrate consistency correct before spawning. Do not rely on the cakes to do it.
