casing question
    #4591443 - 08/28/05 05:54 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Did i crumble this properly? Is there enough substrate in there? How much 50/50+ mix should I put on top of it?

That looks good to me. I would layer it with about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch depending on how much you have in there currently.

You want to get the pieces smaller than that. Your casing should run roughly 1/4 of the depth of the substrate.

not bad, size it fine, I agree with merkage, about 1/4-1/2 on the casing layer. Once you see a little white poke up, make sure you patch it.

Yes hes right because you will have a better pinset if its all as level as you can get it

Read my pinning strategy to find out why a perfectly level substrate as well as an even thickness of casing material is so important, It's not imperative but it will make a difference and you'll be fine tuning your cultivation skills. GL
