50/50 tek and limestone
    #4455303 - 07/26/05 01:46 PM (12 years, 24 days ago)

If i have just crushed limestone and no oyster shells, how much should i be using in relevance to the peat moss and verm in the 50/50 casing tek? scat suggested 2.5 percent of the total mix, but i think he was including oyster shells in what he told me. also, it makes sense to use slightly more limestnoe than normal because i will have crushed limestone and not powdered or pulverized which means less surface area. how much more should i use?

best just to get yourself a ph meter
can't find the link i'm looking for, but it was an excellent piece on ph that a6ar had written.
it has been moved, or archived, or something, because my bookmark led me to nothing.

you really should use a ph meter if you're using a peat-based casing material, though.

>crushed limestone and no oyster shells

Both are the same. I dont know how well the course will even work, if you cant grind it down more...I wouldnt add much over 5% to the peat moss (so 2.5 for a 50/50) but you could add probably up to double without doing yourself harm. Crushed limestone wont burn your casing like hydrated lime can, so its harder to add to much.
