50/50 is refering to the amount of peat/verm you use(the ratio)
50/50 is 50% peat(or whatever) and 50% verm(or whatever)
so in other words
1/2 and 1/2
the + u see after 50/50 sometimes-50/50+ that is refering to adding lime,crushed oyster,and things like that to your 50/50

its a casing mixture that is a 1:1 ratio of shpagnum peat moss and vermiculite. 50/50 + is the same mixture with hydrated lime or another source of calcium added to buffer the ph

It means that by asking that question, you'll piss off 50% of the people here by not taking the time to look around the site and find the answer to such an easily answered question. However, the other 50% of the people here don't mind answering such inane questions.

If I wasn't such a nice guy, I'd call you a lazy dumb ass.

Read the FAQ's and try the search feature. You'll be astounded and amazed at the wealth of information available to you.

If you had a hard time finding out what 50/50 meant, then you didn't look. As Anno pointed out in the post after mine, it's in the FAQ. He was even kind enough to provide a link. It's also in the casing portion on this very web site. Only someone too lazy or too stupid to look would not be able to find it. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you're not stupid.

I'll be nicer than usual and provide a link to the main page here where if you click on "Grow / Find" you'll see several casing techs.

http://www.shroomery.org

These are not hidden and are very easy to find with only the smallest amount of effort. Also look above the list of posts and you'll see an amazing feature.

It's called "Search", try it why don't you.

I only wish that those of you who answer such inane posts, would not. Maybe then people would use a little initative and find things for themselves. Alas, I fear that will never happen.

As for myself, I fully intend to keep responding in the manner many of you don't like, so get used to it.
