How deep should i make my substrate?
    #1582575 - 05/27/03 09:55 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I plan on casing 3 cakes to a container, making the substrate depth approximately 1 inch deep. Should i use smaller containers to get a deeper substrate? Would it really make a difference if i were to case 4 cakes to a container, making the depth closer to 1.5 inches?

case as deep as possible, while still leaving large square footage on top. a 12 inch deep container with only a 4x4" top will not produce as good as spreading it out to a depth of 4 inches with dimensions 7x7 on top-same volume approx, but waaay better results-but do whatever you are willing to do, the more substrate you use-deep and wide-the bigger and more massive and longer your mushrooms will grow.

Or you could buy some poo based compost and do a bulk casing. This way you can expect about an ounce or so the first flush, depending on a lot of factors.
