50/50 casing formula
    #1041987 - 11/11/02 12:17 AM (15 years, 1 month ago)

A FOAFOAF has several fully colonized cakes and wants to case them using verm and peat moss (50/50). What is a good water:verm:peat ratio? We have been using the Shroomery to look up info on casings, but most teks don't give any exact (or even rough) amounts of water to use. They just say stuff like "wet until casing just barely drips" or other descriptions.

10 cups verm + 10 cups peat + ? cups water?
5 cups verm + 5 cups peat + ? cups water?

suggestions or links are appreciated and read several times a day.

Look here, i think you add water until it is damp, so it depends on the peat moss and verm / hope that helps

Different vermiculite and peat moss types have different water absorbtion capabilities so its hard to come up with an exact recipe.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis

"I would rather be exposed to the inconveniencies attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it." - Thomas Jefferson

if you pick up the 50/50 mix it should feel wet. congradulations you now have enough water
