50/50 + tek/ph ?
    #965504 - 10/16/02 10:55 AM (15 years, 7 months ago)

hey all

this guy i know followed the 50/50+ casing tek to a T, and used distilled water. problem he had was this, the mycelium failed to colonize the casing, and when he checked the pH of the casing is was around off the around 9.0. he made another batch of casing mix using less hydrated lime, and the same amount of oyster shell. same problem. i've heard gypsum can be used to lower pH as long as it isn't the kind that has magnesium in it. he reasoned that perhaps the pH of the peat was adjusted instead of being around 2 or 3. anyone else have this problem? any other suggestions

pH 9 sounds fine to me, that's what I usually aim for.

my friend does the 50/50 without the + and has no idea what the ph is and it works just fine.
