Coconut Coir Casing
    #1545962 - 05/13/03 07:15 PM (14 years, 17 days ago)

Hi everybody. I'm new to the forums, i know this kid who just started growing mushrooms a few days ago after his spore syringes were delivered... the jars are inoculated and haven't colonized yet, i was wondering about casing. I think with the proper instruction and attention i can pull off a successful casing, but i don't know how to do coco coir and verm casing. I have heard alot of vague things but basically, i'm wondering...

Do you put a layer of coir, then the crumbled cakes and then another layer of coir?

How wet should the Coir/ verm be?

What proportions of verm/coir should he use? Is 60/40 the best?

Finally, how difficult is it to case if one is new to shrooms but familiar with sterile techniques? Should my friend avoid this first time?

Thanks so much for your feedback =).

ditto!! look in the faq's, and stay away from layering in between, but a casing layer underneath your substrate can increase water content-afoaf had big results with wet perlite under the sub, and verm straight on top. and verm coco is by far teh best casing layer to use-good choice

Yeah, i have already read the FAQ. It isn't too specific as to the amounts or what you do with the casing after you make it, which is why i was wondering about the layering. I appreciate your response jake that helped me out. Thanks for the link metalchimp, i'll let you guys know how it turns out.

Apparently not. I was looking at the Coir FAQ specifically. It's amazing how you can selectively overlook things when browsing shit on the internet. Thanks
