Verm Casings
    #1746144 - 07/24/03 11:35 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Is making a straight verm casing worth the extra verm? Or is it really going to increase yields from PF cakes? It seems like since you're only adding moist verm (and it's non-nutritive) that it'll only drain the cakes nutrients in the first flush, and still have small shrooms. Is it worth it at all? Or just a waste? This maybe a dumb question, but before my friend goes into casings he wants some opinions, he plans to start with verm and work his way up but wants to know if it's stupid to start with verm at all. Thanks in advance.

It did for me. I think it works because when you break apart the cakes when it grow together it get extra moisture in from the bottom layer.

Were the fruits noticeably larger? And if my friend goes to use oyster shell in future casings where does he find it? He knows he can find the answer somewhere in the faq or other posts but he didn't initially. Maybe someone can help?

From casing I got more fruits not much larger then from the cakes but just more pins. Also I used streight verm so I don't know much about oyster shell.
