Storing pre-mixed substrate

Post by fandt94 » Thu Oct 18, 2018 12:27 am

Hi! I have some pre-mixed substrate from THCP and I’m not going to immediately be using it. Can I just store it as is or should I store it in a specific manner as to avoid bacterial growth, etc.?

I would store as is, in a cool, dry place.

I would probably ask them being that they mix it with msw. :)

Edit: Actually, being that they mix it with msw - it shouldn't have any bacterial growth, but it wouldn't hurt for you to know what they recommend. :)
