    #4473303 - 07/30/05 12:55 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I cant find limestone(Calcium Cabonate) anywhere does anyone know where i can find it i'v called 10 greenhouses around me and nothing any websites to get it?i went and bought this stuff(Hydrated Horticultural Lime)Does anyone know if this lime will work?Does this sounds right?
Calcium 50.0%
Magnesium 0.4%
Calcium Cabonate Equivalent 128.0%
Calcium Hydroxide 0.5%
Magnesium Hydroxide 0.5%
Calcium Oxide 70%
Magnesium Oxide 0.7

Only problem is i'v read that limestone works alot better and there is a good chance this stuff i got could burn up the myc.

If you go to Petco or Petsmart, theres a product called T-Rex Calci-Sand, thats calcium carbonate, works in a pinch, they even have glow in the dark variety for that special glow

Hydrated lime is HOT STUFF.

Given enough exposure, it will eat your skin off.

Plus, you better have a GOOD ph tester, otherwise - you can cook the works - with it.

Try a feed & seed store for crushed oyster shells. Most feed & seed stock that, but some is pretty chuncky. If so, a few tablespoons at a time, a decent blender will turn it into a flour type powder. :thumbup:


Best product I HAVE EVER FOUND @ $7 per 50 lb bag.

Thanks for the tip,I do have oyster shell and a good ph tester but i thought you needed Hydrated lime for a qiuck buffer and the oyster shell for the long run is this true?Or if you make it in to flour type well it bring up the ph quicker?
I would much rather use Crushed limestone but i cant find it andwhere around here is there a site i can find it at?



I was just sufing the net and found this stuff,,,,this should work or will it?
