    Hulled millet cannot be used for spawn.

    You need the hulls to keep the result from becoming a breakfast goo.

    Take care,

    JD

    P.S. I use "hulled" to mean "hull removed"....like "peeled" is used.

    So I'm on the right track here, I have millet with hull not removed.

    This is not the place you'r looking for
    Aah I did think it sounded strange before, I read it as "hulled = hull is still on" :)

    Sorry for the off topic post, but is there any evidence that verm is an unsuitable casing for these guys?

    I would not use straight verm.

    I would use 50/50 cactus soil/fine verm if I were you.

    Fine verm is very much like sand and hoogs love a little sand in their casing, :)

    Is it a good idea to case most exotics with cactus mix?

    On my market, cactus mix is mostly fine sand with peat and it has very poor drainage,
    but they still declare it as cactus mix.

    That is terrible, as free drainage is one of the principal advantage of a "cactus soil".

    Not sure, but hard to find a source. I received that one as a gift from a florist I think lol. Long time ago, but I still use it to this day.
