Pretty Dumb Questions(Important[for me] none the less)
    #1201636 - 01/08/03 05:39 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Well, I really want to case, and I've been reading a lot of the casing posts. I have a few questions. Should
1.I make some PF cakes jars, sterilize them, pasteurize the casing, put down a layer of damp vermiculite, put down the cakes, then put down the casing, then stick a needle in there and just wait for it to colonize?
2.Or, should I let the cakes colonize in jars then crumble them and MIX them with the casing?
3.Or should I let the cakes colonize in jars, then repeat the steps in number one?

More questions to aid the beginner in his quest for great yield of mushrooms:

1. With a manure casing, do you need vermucilite?
2. If I was not to use a manure casing, but still use a vermucilite casing, how much less would my yield be?
3. Does anyone have some easy, small scale, manure casing TEKs?

You guys are really cool, please keep expanding your minds and counseling me in shroom growing ways. Thanks for any helping hands that bring me out of my womb.

I think you better do some more reading cause you seem pretty confused.

You have to colonize your substrate before you case it or spawn it.
Substrate = BRF cakes, Rye Grain, Birdseed

After your substrate is colonized you would crumble it and put a casing layer over it.
Or you would spawn the substrate with straw or horse poo or compost to make a bulk substrate...then let that colonize then put a casing layer on that.

Please read the horse poo tek.

As far as a good casing use 60/40 Verm and Coco Coir...and you can't go wrong.

Good luck!

Roadkill, that TEK is awesome, thanks. I read some more on the FAQ and all of my questions are answered. Thanks for your help, may my shroom growing days soon arrive.
