Bulk question: casing PH and casing layers.
    #1763511 - 07/30/03 06:48 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Ok well the mycellium has almost completley covered the top layer of POO in the bulk neglect report tek...now i am going to case it in 50/50 verm peat, i was wodnering though, how much lime-casing ratio to raise the PH, is there a way to check it in the soil...i know you can check ph of water and such, but how does that work with casing?

You can get soil ph testers at major stores in the gardening section.
That should work for casing as well.

if your using hydrated lime then a heaping teaspoon should do.

Using hydrated lime is a touchy process( a little lime goes a long way) , you must mix up and be able to ph test the finished product you are trying to achieve a ph balance of 7.0 . Slighly acidic is okay , if you use to much lime you will swing into the alkaline side of the scale which is far more harmfull to myc .
Try using coco coir/verm for case instead of peat it is in the right ph without needing to add a buffer .
Plain old peat unadjusted will work also , mushies do not mind a slightly acidic casing , so if you do not have proper testing materials do not try using the lime , is way easy to mess up .
Good Luck
ps litmus strips and test tubes are great , and very accurate way to test , but very costly , there are other devices , but not as accurate .
