casing question
    #603387 - 04/09/02 04:06 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I would like to start casing as i've been growing on cakes with limited success. The trouble is i can't find vermiculite or coco coir. I've read some posts which mentioned casing with peat + lime/chalk/oyster shells (like jiffy mix but without the verm). Has anyone had success with this method? Will my results be better with this casing mix or should i just stick to cakes? Thanks

You should try to find verm (hardware stores, hydrophonic stores, online vendors) ! How do you make your cakes if you don't have verm ?
Jiffy mix doesn't have verm in it. Just peat + lime.
I tried a few casings with strait jiffy/coco, and adding verm really works better.
To answer your question : trying is the only way to know !
