Casing layer question
    #4051290 - 04/13/05 06:11 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I read several teks, and theyre all using peat moss, there was one Spagnuhm Moss tek, but it wasnt at all related to what it is im trying to do, it was like some wierd thing. So I picked up a bag of Spagnuhm Moss, and can it be substituted for Peat Moss? or do I needa return this bag? >_<

Even though I'm a noob, maybe I can offer some advice. Try and find a peat moss manufacturer that lists the acidity of their product. Remember, a change of 1 on the pH scale is a very substantial increase/decrease. A 6 on the scale is 10 times more acidic than a 7 for example. Peat moss marketed specifically for marijuana growers tends to be high quality and is more likely to list pH values than peat moss sold for $2 a bag at Wal Mart. The lower the acidity of the peat moss, the better.

If you don't want to worry about pH, you can just use a combination of vermiculite and coco coir. In using coco coir, don't use the bricks, they're a pain to break up. Gro Tek (a marijuana supplement company) makes a great product called Coco Earth. It's a mix of coco coir, vermiculite and sand. 1/3 Coco Earth to 2/3 high grade vermiculite is a good mix. As a bonus, you don't need to worry about adding lime, oyster shells, etc with this mix.
