'Casing starter' what is it
    #1642294 - 06/18/03 02:39 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

A friend got one of the kits that you buy from mushbox.com
Inside it for when you case is something called casing starter.
Looks like loose dirt in a pill bottle.

He calls it his secret ingredient and one guy on their forum forgot to put it into his casing and the result was no mushrooms.

What might this secret ingredient be? I've had a look through the FAQs and such with no answers.

Whatcha think?

Another question is, in my box the shrooms are coming up fine but not evenly. Half the box seems to be taking off, the other half not really. The casing seemed pretty evenly placed.. was thinking maybe I didnt wait long enough before starting the fruiting?

For the second flush would there be a way to get this unused area growing?

Here's a pic of what I mean : :

I thought that having the casing be nutritive is setting yourself up for contams... :confused:

Hate to say it, but I think your casing starter mix is probably extra casing material contained in a bottle to inflate the price of your "kit". If you introduce exta nutrients into the mix you will most likely invite contams. As has been my dawgs experience. Perhaps you got a bit of oyster shell and coco coir? Who knows? I think it is, however, bullshit that they will not grow without adding this "magic ingredient". Just another way to hype a grow kit.
As for pinset, learn to make your own casings first then you can worry about patching, ect. for an even pinset....
