casing mixes/jiffy mix?
    #4395267 - 07/12/05 10:47 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Well I just got back from wally world, a hardware store, and a few local nursery's. I was only able to find only one 8qt bag of verm and no jiffy mix. I did get a bag of pH balanced peat moss potting mix. The peat has lime and perlite, and an un-named wetting agent. The mix is called sunshine all-purpose planting mix. I was thinking of doing a mix of verm and peat for a casing, the peat I got should work right? Also any recommendations on mixing ratios?

I made the first casing I've made in a long time, been almost a year. Everytime I do another they look better, fruit faster, and have better flushes. With that said I must say thanks shroomery for everything. This casing I made was kept simple and is just verm. I have plans for an up-coming bulk grow and I was wondering if the peat I bought would be good peat to case with. The peat is sunshine all-purpose planting mix. Its ph balanced with lime and has some perlite in it. It also says it has wetting agent to help get water to roots but doesn't say what it is. So what do you think good peat, bad peat?

Sounds pretty much like jiffy mix under another name.

The thing that worries me is the wetting agent that I don't know what it is, anything to worry about?

most wetting agents are "inert". they just help retain water in a way. shouldnt cause you any problems. if they do post tho and warn the rest of us.
