get some scotts 3 in 1. i just used this for the first time bulk substrate. it colonized in 5 days mixed 50/50 with crumbled cakes. i used it straight from the bag, just added about 1/4 cup of water to a full flower pot worth. i suspect this shit is Extremely resistant to contamination due to the amount of beneficial organisms in it. its supposedly "profesional" quality, from reading the back of the bag, so i would say it was probably composted within the pastuerization temps. then it sits in the bag to let those beneficial organisms multiply. i was actually afraid to pastuerize it myself b/c i didnt want to ruin a good thing (dont fix it if its not broke).
im in love with this shit!
casing is the most simple thing in the world, dont let everyone scare you out of it. i did it my first time and was successful. just watch your humidity and becareful of overlay. good luck

How should i take care of overlay, and should i add a layer ontop of the 50/50 mix...? i forgot what people told me to lay over top of it. How much does a bag of it cost?, and about what temp, humidity should i use? do you use perlite for humidity or a humidifer? also, about how many cases in your terrarium do you use?
