Jiffy Mix
    #4325167 - 06/22/05 04:30 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Is store bought "Jiffy Mix" pretty much the same as 50/50+? I need an easy casing that I don't have to mess with too much to get the proper PH. I know it's easy to make my own but I'm lazy when it comes to certain aspects of cultivation. If this question has been answered already on the message boards, please post the thread for me. Thanks.

Instead of asking someone to look it up for you, stop bieng lazy and look it up yourself.

:lol: Funny, but I tried that and all I got were grow logs where people used Jiffy Mix, but not whether or not it had the right PH level. Thanks anyway for the comedy.

From the Shroomery message board posting guidelines:

"Please do not give anyone a hard time for asking a question...there is hardly any stupid questions...well there are some.
But be nice or don't reply if you're gonna be mean!"

When I see someone ask a question that I know has already been answered, I'll help them out as best I can anyway. There are a mountain of posts in here and it's sometimes hard to find exactly what you need. If you're going to take the time to read my post and put your 2 sense in, at least offer some real help.

not sure about the ph being adjusted or not. look on the bag and see what it says, if anything or get some ph strips or a tester and see what you get. never used jiffy before, good luck.
imo there are times to be lazy but that is after you do your thing. not to be mean, lol.
peace

Good grief guys, just answer the ? with knowledgable input! Yes! It works great as a casing layer. Yes! It has a lime buffer also. Just hydrate in H20 and squeeze it out ot field capacitaded moisture.

Just to add in, jiffy mix is probably the easiest casing mix to use besides verm which is just about as easy, i just pack it right out of the bag into jars, then PC the jiffy mix for about 15 mins. Once all thats done, just mix it up with a 10% by volume solution of regular h2o2 (you mix the 10%, its 10% by volume of a 3% stock h2o2)
I havent had much contams on this at all. The mean green once or twice but it was always after the 2nd or 3rd flush.

No biggie. I like to put in a wisecrack every now and then myself. I understand members' frustration when the same freakin' questions get asked over and over again, but we were all newbies once and it takes some time to learn how to navigate the site. I did give it an honest effort to try to find the answer to my question before posting it. I was almost positive that there was a post or 2 in here somewhere that talked about the Jiffy mix specifically, but I damn sure couldn't find it. Thanks for the help guys! Shroomery members are some of the best people around :thumbup: :headbanger:

Yes.  I usually nuke mine twice for 5 mins each time, with a minute or so in between.  Although, lately I've been using it right out of the bag and haven't noticed a difference at all as far as contam or yield.... GL bro :stoned:
