Diatomite:

I might add that Diatomite (DE) has other nifty uses, besides a moisture retension agent.

Individual particles of DE are micron size. They are inert & also hollow & that is why they soak up & retain moisture & release it very slowly.

When you soak any grain or bird seed, or pasturize straw, dung or a combo, save some of the water (like a pint).

Throw a handfull of DE in a bowl, add some of that nutient water. Enough that the DE soaks it up. Then mix that DE into your grain or bird seed & load the seed or grain to your jars pre/PC. Then PC as usual.

What you are doing is adding several million more innoc points. Because, the Myc from whatever you innoc the jars with will invade & colonize the DE & grain or seed.

Stands to reason, when you add that spawn to any bulk substrate, your adding several million more innoc point particles because of the DE in the grain or seed.

Aquacoir is a brand name of coir based potting soil (by scotts I think).
I do not have any left, otherwise I would tell you what else exactly is in it.
You are probably better off with just your coir and verm/peat or whatever you chose to add to it.

Hip,

You can get it at Lowes, if they are in your area. It has a rather nasty chemical wetting agent in it . So, the Raccoon chose not to try it as a casing material. To each his own. SixTango

Aquacoir revolution:

Brand: Miracle-Grow
product: Aquacoir

ingredients: soilless blend formulated from 50-60% sphagnum peat moss, coconut husk fibers (coir pith), composted bark fines, perlite, and a wetting agent.

fertilizer is added but!!!!!!!!!! all the feritlizer is, is a combination of nitrogen, phosphate and soluble potash. each of which most use commonly through adding cotton seed meal or any other various phosphate or nitrogen source to casing or compost etc.

nitrogen and phosphate are found in all edible plants and fungi etc.

Aquacoir is perfect for apartment dwellers or those who dont want to mess with having to mix their own casing. all you need is h2o, a way to pasturize(microwave, oven, stove), and a little buffer for insurance...been known to use fine grained or powdered lime...insures equal ph throughout casing.

Aquacoir needs to be brought to light...it really is great stuff..never have i seen my friends mycelium run through casing as fast or have i ever seen better pin sets. it has perfect spacing in mix for wonderful pins to form and feed from the moisture.

shit, you might think i work for the damn company! i just want to pass down the ease and gift of Aquacoir the Great!

peace

Im pretty sure any wetting agent used in soil: knowing that the soil could be potentially used with plants that produce edible by-products, would be of organic and non-carcinogenic means. The few wetting agents used in some organic growing soils through out the agricultural world are all considered to be safe by the FDA. Why would Aquacoir (miracle-grow) take the risk of applying non-organic wetting agent to their soil. Even if it was from a non-organic origin, it would hopefully be considered safe to use with plants producing edible by-product.

So the fact is, I am not sure the exact wetting agent in Aquacoir. Im assuming it is safe to use considering the risk Miracle grow would take in using unsafe or toxic wetting agents. Like I said before, there are organic and even non-organic wetting agents that are considered safe and are used in growing. With all this in mind, it would be interesting to get a hold of miracle grow and find out the exact ingredient, being that it is not posted on the bag. Anyone up to the challenge to help in the pursuit of a perfect easy already-mixed casing?? Read my posts before, i have seen my friend do wonders with it.

im sure there are no worries, peace out

dddd..dddd..dddd.dddd...dd... this just in.. Aquacoir just produced for one unknown individual some of the tallest most beautiful shrooms seen to date..

it is assumed that straw, worm casting, and yes the miracle wonder Aquacoir produced this marvel. if only a camera was available to capture this prestigous moment in shroom history! shrooms grew over 9 inches in length weighing in on avg 10-12 grams wet! honestly would compare to mycofiles recent h20 grow log. they were that long and robust.

well, jack i think the mushroom world has stumbled on to something!


ddd..dd..dd..ddd... =)
