The cake of coir
Posted 15 February 2005 - 12:32 PM
Just a little experiment I tried a while ago that actually came to fruition eventually. Thought I'd share even if I can't get pics right now, hopefully I'll borrow my friends camera for the possible second flush

The only thing holdiong it back from doing better I think is the limited amount of water the thing will hold. <!-/quote-!><hr size=0></blockquote>
One would figure that being coir was used, it would hold more water...

Rodger: do you think that just a verm and coir cake would hold enough nutes for anything but aborts? That would be so simple!!

Somebody try it with coir/verm and leave out the BRF. I know it works with coffee grinds/verm.
but why leave out the brf ?
just to 'see' ?

I've got a rather large tray of newspaper/coir/coffee grounds going. We'll see how it goes.
I didn't use any spawn in this project. Just liquid innoculation.

in general going in directly with a nutrient liquid ensures contams in fairly short order
