Perhaps a stupid question...
    #916945 - 09/29/02 04:15 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

This may sound strange, but when a tek mentions Jiffy Mix, does that actually mean the corn meal Jiffy Mix?  Or is that just a name for a common casing? :confused:

It is referring to the mix of 50% Peat Moss and 50% vermiculite used in horticulture, not the baking mix.

Ah, ok. Would 50/50 vermiculite and peat moss work well with Rye? Is there perhaps another casing that works better with that substrate?

Jiffy Mix is 50/50+. The "+" is a big distinction. It means the mixture was fortified with lime to raise and help maintain the pH. I have no experience with straight 50/50 (sans the lime), but others more knowledgeable than I have told me that it's a surefire way to get the green in a hurry.

Peace

Jiffy Mix works great for me here.  I throw out casings due to limited returns and not trich or cobweb.. :wink:

So, does the hydrated lime create casing conditions more favorable for the mycelium as opposed to molds or bacteria? Or does it supply some sort of nutrition?

50/50 is not entirely unsuccessful without the lime.
