Colonized grain mixed with vermiculite?
    #1578607 - 05/26/03 04:04 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I have looked through the FAQ and the posts in relation to spawn & grains and all I find is 'bulk manure/straw' and/or 'crumble as is and case'.

So, given many people crumble PF cakes (which are BRF & vermiculite) and case, can somewhat the same be done with mixing colonized WBS with moist vermiculite (to increase the reservoir effect) and then case? (pardon me if this question has been asked/answered in the past).

Has anyone done this? Did it work?

For what it's worth, I gave it a shot -- 70% colonized WBS with 30% sterilized vermiculite -- since I have a number of near colonized grains jars, so loss/win is irrelevant. Casing, 60:40 pasteurized coir/verm respectively.

TIA :smile:

Ps. Yes, I know someone will say go dung, go straw with dung ect (that's the next mission).

as long as you sterilize the verm, I don't think this should pose any problems. just watch the moisture content on your casing, since you're incorporating water in the verm. Too much water can lead to problems.
