Question on 50/50 tek, and extra growing questions...
    #4118778 - 05/01/05 03:21 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Hey everyone, Right now i'm waiting for my 11 jars to colonize. I'll be doing 50/50 (peat moss, verm.). I'm following the 50/50 tek and I got a Couple of questions...

1) For the bottom casing layer do I use 50/50 or just real moist verm. and Just use the 50/50 for the top layer? OR use 50/50 for top and bottom?

2) I plan on Microwave sterlize this time cuz Steam sterlizing is a bitch...(but will do it if needed to) When I go to sterlize the verm or 50/50 (depending if I use verm for bottom layer) does it need to be moist or can it just be dry then thorwn in the microwave contain and turn it on?

3) How many minutes do I microwave it for?

4) I plan on doing 3 casings. 2 w/ crumbled cakes and 1 with whole cakes, see if there's a difference. 2 1/2 cakes per casing, how far apart should they be if getting cased whole?

That's all the questions I can think of right now.. I'll probly thing of more later.

Thanks,
Cray
:peace:

Hey Cray, whats up? Most peeps use plain verm for the bottom, but I have seen a few use the casing mix. I use plain verm.

If you're using 50/50 peat verm., don't forget the buffer.

Moist. I nuke mine for 5 min. Mix, and do for 5 more. Make sure you let it cool real well.

Ask Diver about casing whole cakes as he seems to have quite a bit of experience with this.

Good Luck.
Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.

Is it alright to nuke the verm. or steam it, cuz won't nuking it kill the nutrients?
