What kind of jiffy mix is this?
    #4117217 - 05/01/05 02:49 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)



Couldn't find it on the vendor/makers website  :confused:

http://www.ferry-morse.com/product_resul...;VIEW_SEED=TRUE <<vendor website

Notice they don't list a 10QT size but I have it  :confused:


anyways.. has anyone ever cased with this?
I didn't use anything to neutralize the PH do you think my casings will still do good?

Try looking on the back of the bag for ingredients. The bag I bought specifically says 48-52% vermeculite and peat moss with 1% lime. It says Jiffy Mix Seed Starting and Growing Mix. I don't see the exact bag on the website you linked to. I have not used it to case.

Good luck.

On the back it says:

Ingredients:

"This soilless mix is composed of sphagnum peat moss, horticultural perlite, and lime for proper pH balance."

I hope this will work, because I cased about 3 different strains with it..  :smirk:

do you have to sterilize the jiffy mix before casing it over h/poo or any substrate?

uhh, I would. Use this handy trick to get 90% hydration.

Start out with 5 cups of Jiffy Mix... put 4 1/2 cups in a bowl and fully hydrate it until it's 100% wet. Drain off any excess water fairly well. Then, add that other 1/2 cup of dry stuff you have left over (10% of the mix). Now you have 90% hydration.. perfect for a casing layer.. and you can either;

1)put in an oven @ 200 degrees for 2 hours in a pan with alum foil on top
or
2)pressure cook it @15 psi for 45 min
or
3)microwave.. set in a microwave safe container, microwave for 5 minutes, let sit for a minute... shake the container if you want... then nuke for another 5 minutes.

Apply casing layer.. and wait

Hope that helped

Sam
