How's this for casing?
    #4397275 - 07/12/05 09:10 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I got this Miracle Grow potting soil, has : " 50-60% sphagnum peat moss, coconut husk fibers ( coir pith), composted bark pines, perlite, wetting agent, fertilizer. I want to mix this with verm, I was thinking 50/50. Please give me your input or results if you've tried anything similar.

Thanks!

Just get a bag of peat moss. What your suggesting does not sound good to me. There is quite a few things in that miracle grow soil which you don't want in your casing. Pine bark sounds like chunks of wood , you dont want perlite in your casing , and the fertilizer deffinatly sounds bad. From what I can recall miracle grow soil has little clear balls filled with fertilizer liquid , don't think fungus will enjoy that. Miracle grow soil is formulated for plants and their root systems , not for a mycelial network.

Well if they did try it, they wouldve found out that mircle grow is bad. No fertilizers in your potting soil. There should be some at walmart or homedepot with just peat moss and maybe some lime, verm, perlite, wetting agent and maybe wood...but NO nutes, no starter food, no food at all...
