"garden lime"
    #4043427 - 04/12/05 12:54 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

i recently bought some "garden lime" from ace hardware...it says that it is "safer" than hydrated lime.

here is the mixture:
calcium 21%
magnesium 10%
calcium oxide 29%
manesium oxide 17%
calcium carbonate 52%
magnesium carbonate 35%
calcium carbonate equivelant 100
effective neutralizing value 91
effective neutralizing power 93.7


i'm going to make a casing using 2(ksss) 1/2pint cakes, another using 3(mexican) 1/2pint cakes, and another 3(b+) 1/2 pint cakes..
how much garden lime should i use in each casing?

my brain is melted.

As a buffering agent, you want closer to 95% CaCo3 (calcium carbonate).

That isn't & is high in magnesium. It is a dolomite/limestone commonly called aglime (for use in gardens).

REFERENCE HERE:

does home depot sell the right stuff? I used oyster shell but i read in tmc that the lime flour is better

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

Some do & some don't. You just have to read the content label of whatever they have. 95% pure calcuim carbonate costs a bit more, but not much. Dolomitic limestone is okay for gardens.
