Jiffy Mix, how effective is it?
    #4012004 - 04/04/05 10:45 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

So the only thing ive heard about jiffy mix is it comes pre sterilized and is prebuffered. So im looking for people who have used it. How well does it work as a casing?

Ive used potting soils and just about everything that homely depot sells for casings ...
I like coco coir and verm for a simple casing and it grows big shrooms
If you want to get fancy use horse poo and pasturise :thumbup:

I've used it and it worked out quite well. I mixed it with powdered oyster shells (for a little extra long term, I dont know what buffers they put in, but a little extra shell doesnt hurt since I have it..dont know if its needed to preform well or not) and some chunky verm. The verm they put in is small and miniscule compared to what you want IMO. I'm not really sure how much I put in...I just mixed it until I liked it.. Seed Starter (peat, verm [small amount], perlite [small amount], buffer) worked out well doing the same.

I always sterilize again though. 30 minutes in the PC is better then hours of wasted effort.
