Casing material.
    #11284106 - 10/20/09 03:09 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

I have colonized rye.
I want to case it.
I dont know where I can get peat, and limestone.
Will it be enough to use vermiculite or compost such as humus, or something which is more available?

you don't want nutrients in the casing layer but yes MGMC dose because it is half coir which is not preferred

near me. I just picked up a 10qt bag of Sphagnum Peat Moss at a local true value hardware.  I seen MGMC at a nearby ACO, but it was only in the big bags, I dont need that much yet, plus I don't really have a place to store a big bag.

I live in a four season climate, so gardening stuff is out of season.

You'll get far more bang from your colonized grains if you'll spawn them into manure.  Even if you have to buy bagged cow manure in the city, it will outperform casing. 

You can also fruit manure uncased.  I'd suggest getting a bag of composted cow manure, and then mixing it 60/40 with vermiculite (manure/verm).  If your nursery has composted chicken manure in bags, get that and toss in a few handfuls, but not over 5% by volume.  Bring to field capacity, pasteurize at 140F to 160f (60C to 70C) and spawn when cool.
