Jungle Growth potting soil for casing layer?
    #4277603 - 06/09/05 10:04 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I picked up a 24 quart bag of "Jungle Growth Professional Growers Mix" for $4 today at Lowes. It clearly states that it is all natural and there is no fertilizers added.

Contents listed in order as on the bag:
55-65% sphagnum canadian peat moss
(non specific as to ratios of the next 4 ingredients)
composted aged pine bark
perlite
verm
and horicultural grade hardwood charcoal which the bag states that it helps to bring oxygen to the roots of the plant.

Will this be an appropriate mixture for a casing layer?

Does it contain lime also? If so, it will work fine. Just pull out all of the large sticks and bark before casing. If not, you'll have to add some lime for buffering. But it should have it in it.

Not the best. It'll work though.

I use soils also. They work great, especially peat based ones.

Heard bark wasn't the greatest thing ever - But I've read about it working.
