Casing with Scotts 3 in 1
    #1179135 - 12/30/02 08:38 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

Ok. I just went and bought some sphagnum peat moss and a big bag of scotts 3 in 1. My cakes are almost fully colonized and I am soon ready to do casing for the first time. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with doing this. Maybe walk me through it or point me in the direction of a good tek involving scotts 3 in 1 or peat moss. I'm not really sure how to pasturize the scotts 3 in 1 or the peat moss. I'm not really sure how to go about the whole process honostly. I've been using pf tek and now I'm ready for casing. If anyone could help me out with this a.s.a.p. it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
SHR00M0L0GIST

Well.

What I'D do..( may not be the best source!!!! )

Pop the cakes in a new/clean plastic bag, crush them up with your hands from the outside of the bag.

Clean an opaque ( no light thru the container )/black/// etc.. with lysol/alcohol/etc.... then make a layer with the cakes on the bottom, then gently sprinkle the 3 in 1 on top. Do not pack it down and don't worry about having a smooth surface,, just have it even,, then lightly spray it with water and peroxide to keep things clean!!!

works for me so far!!

Well in my previous experiences u need to mix with about 50/50 verm/3n1 so the 3n1 doesnt become so saturated. All my past attempts have had trich. Go find some poo/straw it's betta.

I"m using straight potting soil!! sprayed down with water and peroxide!! no problems yet!

When you buy your soil,, get a bag that is still sealed, with an air pocket, when you squeeze the bag, make sure it's air tight.. should not be too contaminated.. don't buy the busted bag on the bottom of the pile!!

well mine ended in trich due to oversaturation which didn't allow the mycelia to colonize all the 3n1and thus lettin trich setin.

I used scotts 3-in-1 straight out of the bag. No problems here either.

won't the peroxide harm the mycellium? I have 4 bottles of 3% peroxide to use and two gallons of distilled water. I wasn't sure if I should use the oven or the pressure cooker to pasturize the scotts 3 in 1 or the peat moss. I have everything I need except the know how. This is my first time casing.

Get 2 turkey roaster pans from th grocery store fill with 3in1 make sure you blend with verm and peatmoss then place in turkey roaster pans and bake at 250degrees for 90minutes... Take out and stir the 3in1 up after 60 mins then return to oven to bake for 30 more mins...
Then dump into sterlite or rubbermaid container...
Spawn should be 3pints colonized cakes or grain to 2 turkey roaster pans...
Also this is very inportant~ use distilled water to hydrate your compost before you bake so it gets sterilized right then use distilled water to rehydrate it after your done baking your dung.
Thats it :wink:
Easy right :cool:

Welll..

lets try this again..

You can either

1- clean a container, put some MOIST not WET 3 in 1 on the bottom and pop a cake AS-IS in the container, then cover it with more 3 in 1. just enough to hide the cake, don't burry it 4 inches deep!! just a 1/4 inch will do.

Then spray with a solution ( fine mist instead of a streat of water ) of 1 Liter water ( tap water is ok, spring water is better, it will all work ) and 2 ounces of peroxide. just pour some in the water,,,,, don't worry, it will not hurt the mycelium!

cover your container with a clean plastic bag to keep the humidity up. the water from the soil will wick itself in the air and create humidity, no need for a humidifyer etc...... once a day, open the bag a bit and let some fresh air in. t'il you see some white in the crevices of the soil, then when you FIRST see this, add a bit of 3 in 1 on top and let the rest of the top catch up to have an even pinset! DON'T WAIT UNTIL IT GETS ALL WHITE..< overlay!

2- Same as above, except that you crumble the cakes together and make a carpet on the bottom of your container, then cover with soil.

they will both work fine... and for gods sake,, READ THE FAQ's,, ALL OF THEM!! 3 times over t'il they make sense!!

good luck!!

ps: When you choose your container, pick one that has sides tall enough to alow a few inches above the soil, this way the plastic bag won't touch the dirt and your mushies will have room to grow! otherwise you will need to create a tent or use another container!

thanks alot for all the help guys. I think i got it now. The casings are going into an almost fully automated terrarium. Right now the terrarium is at a steady 85 degrees. The humidity (im not sure) i don't have a hydrometer. What should the humidity be in the terrarium? I'll go get a hydrometer tomorrow.

3% hydrogen peroxide never hurt no body.

85 seems a bit high for fruiting i think... Humidity can be lower with casings than with cakes.... FAQ's have it all listed straignt!!

75 for a casing is much better.
