Almost ready for casting!
    #4027152 - 04/07/05 06:00 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Hey All,

First off I would like to thank you all for all of the great information I have picked up over the past month, for my first grow.  I have 6 nearly colonized B+ brf jars that I am going to cast in about 3 days.  I bought all of the materials needed to cast using the 50/50+ tek, however, I have two questions.  First off my Peat Moss is Miracle Grow Peat Moss.  It says on the bag there is miracle grow added, is this bad?  Also I am not able to get oyster shells and am thinking about using ground up egg shells instead.  I did some research on both egg shell and oyster shell composition, and found them to to contian a whole bunch of Calcium.

here are the sites

Well, let me know what you guys think.  I will continue to post and add pics once my little boomies grow big and strong!  Thanks again for the very usefull info everone! :smile:

"Casing" you "case" things.

I believe that miracle grow is caustic and it will be a bad thing for your peat.

And ground up egg shell are a good buffer, i read somewhere on here that they boiled their broken up eggshells and scooped the membranes which floated off with a spoon, then dried the eggshells and powderizes.

Good luck with your grow, I hope to see tons of pics :laugh:

I would recommend Scotts? Sphagnum Peat Moss. You can buy it at any local Home Depot or gardening store. The crushed oyster shells can be had at any Petsmart or PetCo store. If you don't have one, than you must be in a rural area, which means tons of feed stores. Call your local feed store and ask them for crushed oyster shells (they mix in with the feed for horses).

I found a 50# bag of medium to small crushed oyster shells for $12.99. You can't beat that.

Good luck with your casing.

Awesome! Thanks for the posts! I have been thinking about "soaking" the Miracle grow out of the peat moss. What do you guys think?

I think you need to go out and buy the correct peat moss. Why take a chance with Miracle Grow? Surely they have a Home Depot near you. An 8QT bag costs $3.98 where I live, more or less where you are, but definitely a respectable price.
