casing
    #4215827 - 05/24/05 09:00 PM (12 years, 4 days ago)

My buddy has been doing the pf tek for a few months now and has had pretty decent success casing with just straight verm. He's going to be doing his first spawn run tomorrow with horse poo and straw. I've heard that casing with plain old verm is not a very eficient way of going about it. Why? Would the yields not be as large as they would if you cased with, say, a 60/40 verm/coir or peat. I'm just wondering what the advantages are to the latter method. Thanks

I believe I read somewhere a straight verm casing is not a very supportive medium for a casing layer, that is why it is usually mixed with something like coco coir or peat. Anyone else want to share their thoughts?
