First Casing
    #4614519 - 09/03/05 12:32 AM (12 years, 25 days ago)

Im about to do my first casing from a WBS jar. I was planning on an all verm casing on it, maybe a 50/50. Does one work better and on the bottom of the casing, is it better to use dry or wet verm as a base floor? :mushroom2: :confused:

I heard you dont even need verm on the bottom. But if you want to put it on there i always suggest DRY.

I say DRY because in the later flushes you have to keep putting more water on it as the whole casing becomes dry. Since you will have DRY verm on the bottom it will absorb the extra water falling to the bottom *if you over water it* and it could save you from a nasty contam breeding underneathe there. I MIGHT THINK TO MUCH but thats my opinion

I have tried dry once... I noticed that it actually sucked water out of my casings. I would just leave out the bottom layer, it's a hassel anyway and harbors contams. Defenately case with 50/50 peat/verm and add some calcium carbonate which can be picked up for cheap at your local nursury. Someone link this kid a tek to how much calcium carb. you need because my eyeballing tek prolly won't be much help. lol :P <3 and good luck with your casing.
