Soil casing..
    #4666360 - 09/15/05 07:31 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Hey everyone. I started my first grow 20 days ago, and now have 4 fully colonized PF cakes. Two are pinning nicely, one is chilling in the jar still and I decided to go ahead and try a casing with the other one.
This is what I done..

Dry verm in bottom, crumbled cake ontop (Id say its almost an inch thick) and then for the casing layer I used somthing different... I didnt feel like taking the bus to the hydro shop to get some coco coir, so I thaught why not try this bag of Lamberts seed starter.(soil with peat and perlite in it, lime, probably other stuff)
Good idea... probably not.
Dose anyone think this shit will work? On the bag it says it has natural ferts, and if its for starting seeds and cuttings I dont think it would be that strong.

If this is a bad idea, I just remembered that I have some Jiffy Peat pelts that I can take apart and use, is it too late to take off the soil and use somthing else???

Thanks a shit load guys couldnt have gotten this far without good old shroomery.
peace

Naw its really nice and fluffy. I got it wet and squeezed out as much water as I could, so it was just kind of damp after microwaving. Im thinking it might be too dry?

You may have to mist it a bit more than the regular casing mixtures, but I dont think it should be much of a problem.
