How to case?
    #1174994 - 12/28/02 09:46 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

When making a casing with birdseed How do I distribute the birdseed? Do I just pour the colonized birdseed on the bottom of my tray and cover with the casing? Do I mix it with the casing material? I was going to use roadkills 60/40 casing. Do you use a bottom casing layer such as vermaculite roadkill?

I think the title should be "how to case".  Spawning implies you are going to use the seed to innoculate a bulk substrate like straw or crap.

I have never done this (most people would use the seed to to a bulk tek) so you may choose to ignore this but i would treat it like any other casing i.e pour seed into tray and case it.  As for a bottom casing i would not bother in this situation but it would'nt hurt as long as your don't get it to moist.

just my opion :wink:

Directly from the FAQ

The term "casing" as it is used in the mushroom cultivation is the method by which substrate (either PF style cakes or colonized grain) is crumbled into smaller pieces, and covered with a non -nutritive layer such as peat, vermiculite, coco coir and different mixtures with additives. How do I case? Casing is a simple process. You crumble your substrate, layer it in an appropriate container, and cover with your casing layer. A Detailed "Casing for Dummies" write-up goes over each step of the casing process with pictures.

The only thing I'd watch out for is the depth of your casing layer - coz without a bulk substrate and say 1 jar of seed your only going to need a shallow casing layer (unless your using a tiny tray :wink: )
