casing layer for straw/poo?
    #4261700 - 06/05/05 11:37 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

my casings of a base of damp verm and then many alternating layers of colonised BRF PF cakes (colonised) and 50/50 straw/poo. It is all and all 5 inches deep. Its has just finished colonising and I need a good casing layer. Any ideas? Preferably stuff I can get from Lowes and Walmart. How to sterilise it would also be appreciated.

Wow...That's deep :cool:

I've read that anything deeper than 5+, isn't worth it.

Um...Sounds like you have a shitload of verm., While it may be good for absorbing water, it will lack in nutes., per sq. inch. But that might not be a big deal, you're depth totally compensates..

Sterilyzing Casing...

A.)Load a QT/Pint jar , Boil er PC...Hour should do it...
B.)Put in a bag/plastic container that can with stand microwaving.Life lid to allow air to escape. Nuke for 5.Wait for 5.Nuke for 3. :thumbup:
