casing wbs
    #1472885 - 04/19/03 12:14 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

when you case a colonized jar of wbs, you mix 2 parts of the colonized wbs with 1 part sterialized vermiculite? then use that as your middle layer?


thanks

25% by volume , minimal that is .
PS are you "casing" , or inocing a bulk substrate i.e. , compost , dung , straw ?

i've never heard of anyone mixing vermiculite into their substrate. i suppose it could be good though for holding water. try it out. middle layer? i don't think that using a bottom casing is very common. i don't do it. most people don't. if this is your first casing, nix the bottom layer. just use a layer of casing material, 1/4 the depth of the substrate, right ontop of it.

he is going to "case" the wbs. he thinks its done just like casing brf cakes, but read somewhere that people mixed verm. in with the wbs at 2:1. But didnt know if it was 2 parts of colonized wbs and 1 part verm. or the other way around. then he was gunna put a layer of verm. on the bottom , then a layer of wbs then a top layer of 50/50+


thanks

Try looking here

z@z.com uses a mixture of wbs and vermiculite at a ratio of 2:1 wbs to vermiculite. He then cases it and from what I have seen he have very good results.
