casing contradictions
    #1271552 - 02/02/03 05:33 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

i tried casing for the first time using the simple minds tek, which basically puts wet verm beneath and a little on top of crumbled cakes. but how is the mycelium supposed to spread if it's a non-nutritive casing? i waited months, and finally had a little mycelium pop through, and it got contaminated soon after. anyone have luck/a casing tek using store bought compost? suggestions/explanations/attacks for not reading the faq (oh but i did my friend) welcome.

much love,
big cat

im sure if youve lookedthrough pictures on this site youve seen some very successful casings haha. but maybe you jsut werent sterile enough and thats why the myc got contammed, and maybe it took months because the humidity and temperature were not good. keep trying and dont give up on casings.
