Ok, so I just did my first casing...
    #4109058 - 04/29/05 12:19 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

3/8"to 1/2" moist verm on bottom
2" Crumbled subtrate in middle (4 half-pint cakes)
1/2" layer on 50% verm 50% peat-moss

I'm wishing I would have added a PH buffer now... because... well, why not? I know it'll only be better for my casing. But the garden store was closed by the time I got off work, and my cakes had been dunking +24 hours and I needed to get them cased.

So I'm wondering if I can just sprinkle something on top of the casing layer tomorrow? Or does it have to be mixed in? Or should I not bother and just leave it? Recommendations?

Its supposed to be mixed in.

I don't think sprinkling it on top will do much good. I could be wrong though.

I'd say leave it and remember next time.

Spray a basic solution on the casing periodically while checking pH. Optimal is ~6.5-8.
