casing mix

What about regular potting soil for a casing? An old friend told me he just used hyponex(national selling brand) potting soil for his casing? Anyone else?

RR has stated that soil is not to be used as a casing layer. Considering thta a lot of soil is purposly infected with Trich to help rooting this isn't a good idea at all. Just mix the 50/50+. Once you get past the fear of using lime, it is so easy, and the results are hard to beat. Better yet, if you really cant find suitable casing material, just use wax paper and dont case. The pinset won't be quite as thick, but it saves a lot of time.

Perhaps you misread. Potting soil was the old standard casing material prior to the development of peat based casing layers which are superior. Many growers have used various potting soils for casing with fair to good results. Proper pasteurization should take care of molds and mold spores.
