Jiffy Mix, not sure about this stuff!!!!
    #588941 - 03/25/02 08:34 PM (20 years, 8 months ago)

Ever since I have been casing, I've used Schultz moisture plus potting soil w. great results. Well everyone says potting soil sucks and to use 50/50 mix. Well Jiffy mix is pretty much the same thing right? I have tried it twice w. bad results. I case it, wrap foil over the top, poke holes and leave. When I come back a few days later, where as I would normally see healthy rhizomorphic mycelium coming thru, it's not like that w jiffy mix. It appears all wet and nasty, there' like a quarter patch of some real fuzzy looking mycelium, almost like polyfill or somethiing. The first casing it only appeared in one small spot and was causing overlay so i birthed it, 2 weeks later, nothing. Is there something I"m doing wrong here? Because so far my experiences w. the stuff have sucked ass. Can someone help?!! Thanks!!!

i'd be interested in this too.
i was going to try some jiffy mix next because it has the peat, verm, and lime all in it.

It may be too wet. Put less water and/or more vermiculite. Jiffy Mix is wonderful in my experience, keep on trying.
What I do : put some Jiffy in a pot, fill with tap water, boil till the water evaporated, strain the excess water, add verm, mix, and prepare my casings while it's warm.
