2 Casing and Spawning question
    #1589900 - 05/29/03 07:22 PM (15 years, 15 hours ago)

1.once you case your colonized bulk substrate, do you put into terrarium and maintain 95%+ Rh and 76 F temp, as you do with cakes??

2. Why do you want to pack down the bulk substrate as hard as possible after adding spawn (colonized grain)? Is this to keep it in a giant solid cake form?--becuase I thought mycelium grows best in lightly packed substrates/casing layers.

In my friends experience, the only substrate that benefits from being compressed is straw. Packing the straw down after spawning speeds colonization.

so does it matter if you pack it down with straw and poo?
