Lime... ???
    #464736 - 11/21/01 01:41 AM (20 years, 10 months ago)

i've been told that adding lime to a coco coir casing layer is a good idea to reduce the pH and help prevent contams. i'm a bit confused about the exact type of lime i need to get.

what kind of place would sell what i need (garden centre? chemist?), and what is it called exactly?

japh.

It?s called LIMESTONE or CHALK (Chemicaly CaCO3).

Garden center and a chemist were both good guesses.

Try also http://www.longcliffe.co.uk/ for bulk quantities.

nobody said anything about 'calcium oxide.' CaCO3 is calcium carbonate and is basic (basic meaning that it is a base not an acid) in the pH spectrum and lowers your asing;s pH which is generally slightly acidic and increases in pH as mycellium excretes its natural shit. the base helps to neutralize the substance.

Holy shit people; COMMON SENSE! we were all born with it where did it go?
maybe theres a tek out there to explain how to use it!

And for chewing coca leaf, and for making masa, cornmeal flour for tortillas and tamales . . .
