vermiculite with colonization
    #467093 - 11/23/01 01:10 AM (15 years, 17 days ago)

Hello,
I was wondering if anyone has noticed a difference with vermiculite and colonization times? The first bag I bought everything worked like a charm. The 2nd bag looked completely different (kind of like styrofoam packing) and felt like clay when it was wet, making colonization pert near impossible. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find any similar to the first bag. I'm assuming it was from a different mine.
Any similar experiences? Any suggestions?

I get my verm from walmart. you can also find it in a garden store. I always use the same brand so i get the same results. verm is every where some times you just have to look hard.

Thanks.
I will be looking for some better verm, and hopefully some better results.
What I particularly noticed about the batch from the clay verm was very skinny stems.
Anybody had good results with drilling a hole in the middle of the cake and pouring in water? Is it too late to make casings once you've yielded a very poor flush with cakes?

take a syringe and add a couple of cc of spring water. for casing take off all pins and case.
