Casing - 1 tray or more?
    #1114845 - 12/05/02 07:55 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

Hi there, would I benefit from having more than 1 trays for casing, or is 1 tray actually better because the mycelia can make a stronger network with more. I have a 10 gallon aquarium with plenty of space for 2-3 small trays. How much substrate would you recommend for 2-3 small trays? How about 1 pretty large tray? The aquarium is just shy of 21 inches long and 10 inches wide (like one of the aquariums you'd find at Wal-Mart). Someone said for one large tray about that size that 3 pints would be good. Would you agree? You see, I have a dozen of those 1/4 pint canning jars to put to good use, so, I was thinking of inoculating all of them and putting them into one casing tray. What do you think? Advice or comments?

if you were to use the aquarium itself as a casing, wouldn't you be screwed if it got contaminated? It seems logical to have different casing trays so you can save the uninfected ones and dump the contaminated one.

I like to case in smaller trays, but usually its just because im growing several strains at once. I also recently lost two big casings to contams, and now I wish i had made a few small ones instead  :tongue: 

If you wanted to make a big casing and are worried about contamination, use straight vermiculite. Ive never had any contams with it.

ok. so the advantage to having several individual casings, as opposed to one fat one, is that if one casing becomes contamineated, you can junk it and still have several healthy casings. That being said, what are the advantages to having one massive cake? are there any?

if you aren't very experienced then I would just stick to the smaller trays for now. Once you feel you are ready to use huge casings then go for it. You will probably get a much larger yeild and possibly even more flushes out of a larger casing. For now I'd just stick to the smaller casings if I were you.

I vote for several smaller casings.
You're going to hate yourself, if you make 1 big casing and then it gets contam'ed!!  :tongue:
