Went out this morning and measured the results from test #1 which contained the potting mix,
mushroom mix and vermiculite with a couple handfuls of black cow I had sitting in the paint tray.
top flotation was 1/2 cup and the bottom settling contained the finer granules with vermiculite
had 1 1/2 cups.
Test #2 had the mushroom compost. it had all settled to the bottom with no recognizable
layers about 1 1/2 cups there. Got that in the tray draining and will go out and feel
Started test #3 with the potting mix with 2 1/2 cups in test bottle.
Already seen flotation come to the top. Will let that settle until tonight.
checked test three @ 15:30 hrs
Top flotation test #3: 1 1/4 cup
bottom sediment: 1/4 cup fine particles
That 2 1/2 cups to start was dry mix.
Looks like elimination of the mushroom compost & black cow is a must do.
