MGMC As a bulk sub additive?
    #9632179 - 01/18/09 04:07 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I picked up bag of MGMC to use as a casing mix since they were sold out of verm and I needed it right away.

Here's the ingredients:

50% peat moss
Coco Coir
Perlite
"forest compost"

Fertilizer:

Total Nitrogen:  0.21%
0.12% ammoniacal nitrogen
0.09% nitrate nitrogen
Available Phosphate 0.07%
Soluble Potash 0.14%

Is there any reason why this wouldn't be a good additive to a bulk substrate mix?

I'm thinking -

MGMC + Hpoo + Vermiculite + Coffee + Gypsum

Any thoughts or experiences?

I don't see how potting soil would hurt even though it may not help much, but you really should try to find a potting soil mix without the chemical fertilizers added.  I think jiffy mix is pretty close to the same thing.

Alright, I doubt I would ever buy this again unless they were out of something else and I might as well use what I have if it won't hurt.

I'll use the rest of this up in my next project and see how it goes.

I cased 2 monotubs with it.

#1:





#2:






1000 grams wet off tub #1 first flush
Dried down to about 4 1/2 ounces, they were meaty bastards.

1600 grams wet off tub #2 first flush
I just picked these, not even in the dehydrator yet.

So I spoze it works ok as a casing.
