Bottom casing layer or not?
    #4106629 - 04/28/05 01:09 PM (13 years, 26 days ago)

For those of you not familiar with my grow.. please check it out in the Grow Log & Pics section. Basically it's B+ / WBS & PF jars ... going to spawn to High Mountain Compost.

My question was about a bottom casing layer. Should a vermiculite layer be placed on the bottom or not??

What would the advantage be?
