Casing 50/50
    #11186724 - 10/05/09 02:34 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

Well Im going to be casing a few cakes pritty soon and I was thinking of going with the Peat moss and verm - Is there any thing I should do to the Peat Moss? clean it some how? And how would I go about doing this do I just mix the verm and Peat together dry and then add it to the cake or do I roll the cake in dry verm and then cover it with peat>?

Casings are generally for bulk substrates and grain. Cakes will do just fine with a dunk a roll. There is no real need to case cakes.

thanks. All stay with the verm. But I thought the Peat moss would help in one way or another.

if u wanna do a caseing, get ur hands on hydrated lime.

add that to the peatmoss. about 1 teaspoon per cup of peat moss.

then u have to pasteurize it in order for it not to contam

If you are going to use verm I would highly suggest the lime.  I had 4 cases w/ 50/50 verm/moss and I didnt use any lime, just some crushed up calcium tablets.... Needless to say, I blame my failure on not having any lime.  If you are going to case, get your hands on some coir, like everyone and their brothers mothers sisters daughters friends cousins dog uses.  It is a hassle to get, but I believe it takes out an extra variable to screw up your grow.

you could mix verm and peat and roll in that. might be a nice addition to the dunk and roll

the dunk and roll is esentially a casing...but you should look into spawning those cakes to manure or cococoir or straw based substrates and casing those with 50/50 once fully colonized

its not that much lime. just mix it in... ull c.

dont use coir as a caseing.. maybe spawn your mycelium to the coir as a bigger substrate then add a caseing layer of 50/50 peatmoss and verm.. make sure to add the lime to the peatmoss and pasteurize it tho. makes it alot better
