Casing question
    #1768818 - 08/01/03 11:32 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I have a couple of questions about casings

1. Can 50/50+ mix be used similarly to a bulk substrate like poo or straw? What about mixing straw+50/50 mix? Would that be worth while?

2. I've noticed dunking produces larger fruits. How does a dunked casing compare to a casing with a bulk substrate?

No. 50/50+ is a casing mixture. Straw and dung are substrates. One goes on top of the other. There would be no point in mixing them.

So there's no way 50/50 can be used as a substrate?

If you are talking about a 50/50 mixture of verm and peat, then no. There are not nearly enough nutrients to support mushroom growth. It is much better suited for casing.

50/50 is non nutritious

The casing layer serves 4 purposes:

1.) To protect the colonized substrate from drying out.
2.) To provide a humid microclimate for primordia formation and development.
3.) To provide a water reservoir for the maturing mushrooms.
4.) To support the growth of fructification enhancing microorganisms.
