Miracle Gro?
    #4184664 - 05/17/05 01:33 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

After about a 4-year absence from mycological cultivation, I am getting prepared to start a new batch. I have a question for those who are in the know: can I "PF Cake" it using Miracle Gro potting mix... instead of vermiculite... and BRF (brown rice flour)?

No, there exists no substitute for vermiculite.

So you use potting mix, containing Miricle Grow nutrients (N-P-K), for the verm in PF cakes? Cause thats what everyone else is talking about.

Potting mix with nutrients shouldnt be used for a casing layer even.

Substrate & "casing layer" are two differing things.

Potting soil as a casing layer? Most has nutriants, otherwise plants would not grow in them. A peat based potting soil, I can understand.

Of course. So why were you talking about it in this thread when what your talking about has nothing to do with what anyone else is. Were not talking plain peat based potting soil, and were not talking casings.
