Hey what do u think of this?
    #1287186 - 02/07/03 03:27 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I made 2 casings, my first ones. I didnt have verm, so i took my cake crumbled it. put it ontop of potting soil, then topped another layer of potting soil about 1/2 inch on top of it, the mycelium is looking good, but i didnt sterilize the soil... what are my chances? also, i made another casing with about an inch of perlite, my casing slices, and a 1/2 inch of verm on top, also not sterilzed.. i should have, but what are my chances of no contams, and how does everything look?

just remember bud,
mushrooms have been growing in the wild for many years now...

As long as the soil isn't to acidic, you will probably see some fruits.
(make sure to keep the soil moist or keep it in a terrarium, because the reason you use vermiculite and moss is because of the HIGH water retention)
from what i've heard though perilite is bad for casing just fyi.

you probably won't contam, but from what i've heard around here, perlite is no good as a casing. You should still get a few fruits though. good luck

perilite on bottom is not a case , the verm on top of potting soil is the casing .
Watch , wait and see , if myc is what you trully saw prior to casing , you have a decent chance of something coming up . How much ? Anyones guess !

I also doubt the likelihood of contamination........except for the casing with the perlite on the bottom. If there's water down there, contams are more likely.
