50/50+ - verm - coca coir
    #1162839 - 12/22/02 05:49 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

in my situation, i have lots of supplies available to me. i can make lots of cakes and casings etc and i want to grow a lot of shrooms. if i just want 1-3 crops of shrooms from a casing and then throw it out, is it worth the effort to go through the 50/50+ procedure and having to worry about pH etc... or just go with a straight vermiculite or coca coir layer? obviously the verm/coir are cheaper than the 50/50 but does the extra ingredients in the 50/50+ tek give the shrooms more nutrients, thus increasing its potency or is it just for texture, pH adjustment, and ease of removing shrooms without much damage? what is the reason for lime, crushed oyster shell, peat etc.  :confused:

It will also help with an even colonization of the casing layer, thus allowing for a even pin set, and a bigger first flush.
You should use little bit crushed oyster shell with a 50-50 Of Coir and Verm, and it should work well.

Listen, or your tongue will keep you deaf. :wink:
