Millet/Finchseed question.
    #592034 - 03/28/02 05:50 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

When people refer to grains, I hear a lot saying finchseed, composed of mainly white millet. If white millet is the grain in which you are going for, wouldn't you just want to go buy plain white millet at the health food store?

Or the mixture in the birdseed, (grass seeds, red millet, and flax seed) all good for the substrate?

Another thing I was thinking about was water retention. Does the birdseed alone capable of carrying enough water for 3 flushes cased? Couldn't verm. be used to retain water? If so, anyone have some good recipies?!

Thanks in advance.

No, because ithe millet in the health food store is without the husk.

You want the millet WITH the husk.

I use a 50/50 mix of millet and vermiculite, it works quite well. I have had up to five flushes using this substrate and the 50/50 casing tek.

Its best to after you have simmered your birdseed, to add verm to it until the seed stop sticking together. Then add BRF for a little boost as well.:)bluhoney
