Am I hindering their growth?
    #8793976 - 08/19/08 04:29 AM (9 years, 9 months ago)

I use microwaved organic soiles mix for my casing... Its been working just fine, I have never tryed anything else, its easy to find easy to use and looks nice with out a lot of work. BUT does it work as well as others ? I think my buddy wants us to try some peat moss and oyster shell.. I'm not too crazy about switching our routine so would it make a difference.. if so how?

Thanks

Think of it as microwaving a 3-dollar TV dinner, versus using the oven to cook it - You will taste the difference. :royalrainbow:

What is organic soiles mix comprised of? What are it's ingredients?
It's like asking if "A" is better than "B" without knowing what A or B is .;)

other than taste... they tast like crap anyway, I just chew them up with penut butter granola bar and I dont taste a thing.

Im more worried about speed and quality, I have nerrowed down the fastest teks with the best results and this is the last thing on my list, soilles mix is fast ph nutral and easy, but is it killing my fruit speed or quality? (other than taste)

Soiless mix is made up of organic materals other than natrual dirt, From the touch of it seems to be spagna and peat with tiny fagments of perlight, very small fagments. Kind of like potting soil with out all the added growth crap that makes you sick.

If it's perlite , that's not good . It wicks moisture out , you want something like verm to retain the moisture.

Spagnum is peat moss.

Hippiechick, I'd definately do you, you're love for shrooms, thirst for knowledge, and sweet ass = yum in my 19 year old book. ^_^

but in all seriousness, other than moisture retention (add verm as previously said) there's not much room to improve upon your method as far as the fact that it works for you and it seems quick and easy.
