Using Perlite when casing ?
    #1240810 - 01/22/03 07:35 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

Could you do casing , and use perlite at the bottom of your container, so you can keep the humidity high?

By doing this, can it be near maintenance-free like when using perlite with cakes [pk-tek] ?

Anyone with a specific tek for doing this?

[Sea of Shrooms tek is a bit too involving, but it comes closer to something more maintenance-free......]

thanks for any help! :smile:

I am not sure if I entirely understand your question.

Do you mean as the bottom layer of you casing?....NO
Under your casing container in a fruiting chamber?...MAYBE..depending on the casing materials. I am new to this myself so my information is from what I have read. Peace.

You'd be suprised what you can learn from reading

hmmm.....

i meant spreading the perlite at the bottom of the container/chamber [kind of like how you would do it, if you did this method with the pf-tek cakes] ??

i would like to do it by casing, instead of cakes, but I would like the simplicity of not having to maintain it. Like how it is , when you use perlite in the pf-tek cakes as the layer in the container before you put the cakes on top.

You can do that. I currently have a casing (BRFcakes/VERM) in the same fruiting chamber as my cakes. My cakes are on lids with perlite on the bottom of the fruiting chamber. I put the casing in the same chamber. What matters perlite or not is the humidity. Get a hygrometer. Then you'll know what you need.
