First time casing...suggestions.
    #1120735 - 12/07/02 11:33 PM (18 years, 2 months ago)

After doing some reading, ive decided to try casing with vermiculate as detailed here http://www.mycotopia.net/teks/hongus.html Ive seen much discussion at what method of casing is the best, and was just curious as to where the pro's here at Shroomery would guide me. Ill be using 9 colonized 1/2 pint jars of EQ strain.

well.

If you look in the GrowLog forum you will see pics and discriptions of what all the 'experienced' growers are doing with themselves.

Verm will work fine, atho most growers prefer to use CocoCoir or 50/50 ( 1 part peat : 1 part verm).

hope this helps

Zed

Hey thanks Zed. Ive already looked through all of the Grow logs, and they actually spawned my question. It does seem they all are prefering coco coir, or other casing methods, and Im not quite sure why these are more commonly used than vermiculite only casing. The casing for dummies Tek seemed like a good place to start.
