Bulk Substrate Growing Questions
    #594185 - 03/31/02 02:24 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

I'm reading an article found on this website, "Bulk Subsrate Growing" and I have a few questions and would appreciate any feedback.

1. Has anyone used this and do you recommend it?

2. In Step 7, quote "Cover the pan with a sheet of plastic wrap. Do not seal it absolutely tight, but make sure that very little air is exchanged. Note that some air does need to be exchanged to keep the CO2 level from getting too high." My question is, can I tightly wrap the pan instead and punch a couple of needle-size holes in the plastic? If yes, how many?

3. In Step 9, quote "Soak the vermiculite in water. Wring it out, but leave it fairly damp. Later versions of this guide will have exact measurements but for the moment, you will need to adapt." My questions are, has an "exact measurement" been developed? Should I bake the vermiculite first to remove contaminants or this additonal step necessary? Sterilze the water to be used in the mix? When I wring the mix out, I'm assuming with my hands, should I wear disposable gloves?

Heh, i dont even know what tek you're referring to?
what substrate are you planning on using
what is the verm for?

I would recommend grain, and 50/50+ caseing mixture, as opposed to cakes. All i've seen from cakes, is a whole lot of bad luck, and slow col. times.
