MiracleGro Moisture Control Potting Mix
    #4028239 - 04/07/05 09:58 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

http://www.miraclegro.com/index.cfm/even...13623881cd21c9a Would this be suitable for a casing? It says that it contains coir and peat. It's either this or Sphagnum Peat Moss. I will be casing several of the cakes located in my grow log here http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/3959559/an/0/page/0 thank you all for your help.

Do you have to adjust the ph in it at all? And I forgot to mention that I would do a 50/50 Verm/MiracleGro Moisture Control Potting Mix :thumbup:

I never did ...you might wanna add a bit of lime
The main thing is to pasturize it correctly
I have gotten some really nice results using it

Should I pasteurize it in the microwave, oven, or pc?

No microwave ...we want to pasturise
Do it in a baking bag in your oven and use a thermometer to make shure you dont get over 180 degrees

to do this you just fill the pan w/ what you want pasturized and let it go at 180 for an hour? Does any water need to be added or not?

I dont like this part from the site:

"Enriched with Miracle-Gro? Plant Food."

That stuff seems like it will add nitrogen or something that may burn them a bit or attract contams? Either way, it seems un needed and I know wal mart carries a basic "Seed Starter" which contains no plant food, just peat, buffer, and a bit of verm and perlite...stuff works great when you add extra verm to it..

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)
Anyone looking to start bulk tubs/mono tubs/shotgun hybrids? Good tubs to use..
How I do grain (old still good tips)

I will probably get this then because I saw it at Wally World while I was there. Will this stuff need a ph buffer in it? I do believe that the MiracleGro stuff does have nitrogen in it. Thanks.

It does say Lime in the ingredients for buffer...but I assumed this meant hydrated to get it to a neutral 7 to start. I added in powdered oyster shells myself as if it were coir for a long term effect. Long term buffers dont burn so bad, so its tough to add to much..I think it would be better to add a bit if you have some. If you dont want to, it may work out fine though since it is buffered in the bag. Then add verm slowly untill it looks like the casing mix in that casing I pictured. I dont really know how much I added of it.
