lime in 50/50+
    #5816824 - 07/03/06 07:33 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

I am going to make the 50/50+ casing mix because my Wal-Mart no longer has Jiffy Mix. I found this lime at a local farm and feed store, it says "use to tune up your soil." It looks like small brown balls. From what I read, I thought hydrated lime was gray or white in color. The magnesium content is 2%, so it's less than 3%. I don't think it's dolomite lime. Will this work? Thanks for any help!

Not if it looks like small brown balls. You need powdered lime so it will be water soluable and go to work right away. Get hydrated garden lime, or powdered limestone.
