Yeah, not a problem. Your mushies will love it.

Make sure to deep-scratch between flushes, though. I've found overlay to be a problem with soil.

should i put a layer under the substrate? and how long do i nuke it for?and what would you rather use peatmoss, cactus soil, or succalent soil?also after i case it could i case it again later for more flushes? and how much substrate comes in an evnviromental grow bag from the sporeworks, what is "deep scratching"

Peat moss is fine im using it now and getting decent results. and you can recase lightly after the first flush. and if i was you i wouldnt even mess with those bags there not worth the effort
