Casing Problems
    #1236369 - 01/21/03 11:36 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

A while back, I made a straight verm casing. I microwaved the top layer for 10 minutes and put the bottom layer (1/2in.) in the pan and put it in the oven on 200? for 30 minutes. I put down 2 crumbled cakes and put down aluminum foil and waited. Nothing weeks later. Nothing is poking through. I sprayed it with a H2O/H2O2 solution 2-3x a week. I'm gonna take it out and recase it, but what did I do wrong? Also, any suggestions for when I recase it?

The vermiculite must be moist for mycelium to colonize it.

Maybe I missed something, but why did you steralize the verm? I thought that it had no nutrients and wasn't a good source of food for contams. I've cased 3 cakes seperately with straight verm outta the bag (mixed with water, of course) and haven't had any contam, and plenty of growth. But the big question here is how much water did you mix in with the verm?

It doesn't have any nutrients but could container foreign spores taht can germinate and attack your substrate.

Moist enough so that when squeezed, no water came out. The solution had about .5% H2O2 and the casing layer was about 1/2in. There were no contams that I noticed, and what type of potting soil can I use? Is there any special procedure for the potting soil?
