As long as you kept the water content proper, and kept it clean.. i see no problem with this!

Good luck!

Too wet and it will rot before it fruits..

too dry and it will never fruit at all.

If you want to sterilize soil try putting it into a backing tray and baking it. Like the man said...read the FAQ

oh..you go the moisture level right for the Verm. You DO want it wet but not wet enough that it drips when squeezed.

no offense, but try some READING before experimenting .. i think it's safe to say the #1 reason people fail at mushroom cultivation is because they don't follow simple instructions. you don't get to experiment until after you've mastered the techniques that are tried and true. sorry if i sound preachy, but it's not hard at all to cultivate mushrooms as long as you can read and follow simple instructions.

so yeah, instead of asking ridiculous questions, try reading this;

I have cased without sterilizing before.... I didnt get any contams. That doesnt mean that If I had continued to do that I wouldnt... or you wont get any... if you see what i mean. So just chill out whats done is done.... just nuke your casing mixture for like 10 minutes or so next time... all will be good...

There are soooo many FAQ out there to keep you from making dumb mistakes. Why don't you take an hour or two and read them.

as a note, potting soil isn't ideal as a casing, but it has worked for some.
to give a little direction, i recomend doing a search for 50/50+ and coco coir.
familiarize yourself with the proceedures with both. try them and decide wich you prefer once you have had success with both of them.
thses are just my recomendations and there are many other alternatives, but these are known to work well wen done right and are rather straightforeward.
good luck to you.

OK the rule of thumb is... if it isn't white and fuzzy.. always steralize it.. better safe than sorry

Technically you are using potting soil as a bulk sub , not a casing . It may turn out but there are much better sources of nutes , than potting soil . ie cow/hose dung , worm castings , etc...
Let it be , if you get lucky it may colonize fully , if it does than case it with a 50/50 mix . Casing has little or no nutritve value to mushies , is meant to aid in fruiting by keeping humidity at surface of sub ideal to mushies , and providing water thru the fruiting stages .
Incubate this puppy in the dark , pray the Mushroom Goddess prevents the nice green mold that is most likely to grow ,from ever rearing its ugly head into this over zealous leap into mycology .

READ , READ , READ , and then read some more , stick to the basics , and in small scale till you perfect a system , then try variations and experiments .

Did I mention R E A D ?
