Further clarification about LIME for CASING
    #4118962 - 05/01/05 04:17 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

If you take a look at the 50/50+ tek, the ingredient list contains hydrated garden lime. There have been so many questions about lime (agar and others have done a great job of answering many questions) I thought I would post the ingredient list of the recommended lime from this tek.



Notice that there is VERY little magnesium in this list. This is not the same in every commercial "hydrated lime", and probably is quite confusing for many. All "hydrated lime"s are not the same.

So, if you are going to use garden lime, take a careful look at the ingredient break down.

I hope this might help further clarify the issue. Comments are really welcome!

So staying away from lime with excess magnesium is beneficial? Does the magnesium interfere with mycelium growth? I've never used lime before.

Although there are some reports of using hydrated lime containing a higher percentage magnesium with success, it seems that it can hinder growth.
