I'm fairly new to growing and I've kept it simple with just using brf cakes. However im wanting to make the switch to grains I have some rye berries and some popcorn and a few other various grains to try. I have lime and everything else needed but gypsum I've seen a few diffrent kinds and my local garden store has some peletized but Idk if that's usable could anyone point me in right direction or has anyone used peletized with good results?

pellets will work if you are using the gypsum in the soaking water, otherwise you would need to powder or dissolve prior to using. Welcome to topia :biggrin:

Just pay attention to how pure your gypsum is. If you find pure calcium sulfate it's best.

U can small pieces of dry wall (sheet rock ) at Lowes,Home Depot for small repair jobs; break into small pieces & powder up useing coffee grinder,then sift through flour sifter. It works great.

Just make sure you do not get the green drywall as it is antifungal and meant for kitchens/bathrooms.

Seabass how are we to get to know you if you don't interact with us and post up some pics. 3 posts in 4 months? I saw you want LW seeds you got a better chance getting some from "friends" than from strangers.

Don't take this wrong but you knocked on our door asking for a source, strangers get nothing, I help my friend though. This is an opportunity to be involved with a community.

I found calcium sulphate e516 tofu additive on eBay for 200g for £2.80.
