First casing
    #4172462 - 05/13/05 09:32 PM (13 years, 16 days ago)

I plan on doing my first casing with a coir/verm mix. I was wondering if I should add some oyster shells for a little contam. protection, or is this not really neccasary. I also read that some one sprinkled a little lime on the top for extra protection. Does anyone have an oppinion on this? :mushroom2:

Yes, use a tablespoon full or so per couple cups of casing mix. It makes a big difference.

The lime may provide some protection from contaminates, but the oyster shells will doing nothing but lower and sustain the PH levels.
