Will this work instead of peat moss?
    #4082707 - 04/21/05 09:29 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I have a bag of what seems to be a enriched soil similar to peat moss, it's just seed starter, but it feels very much like peat moss. I have some pics if they help, but I think I'm going to use it as a casing, for the poo/straw substrate I have just spawned.




----
Anyway just hoping if I use this stuff it will work, instead of being a waste of time.
----
Any input would be appreciated.

Sphagnum peat, horticultural vermiculite, perlite, a wetting agent, and lime for ph balance.

Sounds like it might work, try it and report back :smile:

Experimentation got this hobby to where it is today, not sticking to the norm.  Go for it.

I mixed it about 75% seed starter, and 25% verm just so I was safe, if that doesnt work I'm going to try it without the verm, but I have a very good feeling about this.

I have had it for a while now, but I think you can get it at gardening store or even walmart. It's only like 2 bucks for the bag in the pic too. :thumbup:

I cant find that brand again...its good stuff for a mix...pretty free of extra wood stuff and crap. I'd add about 40% chunky verm to it though if I were you. I never used it strait...add that and some powdered oyster shells just cause...
