hey i need advice from growers.
    #1789587 - 08/07/03 07:54 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

ok what i need is a straight forward answer yes or no if this will work. no critiscism. i think thats all i get no real answer so im forced to post time and time again. please and thanks.

I have,

- Wide mouth Masonry jars.
- Large pot with lid.
- Sterile Spore Syringe.
- Professional Grade Vermiculture.
- Professional Grade BRF.
- Nutrient Rich Potter soil.
- 8 or 12 gallon aqaurium.

now will this work.

(part one baking) Take 3/4 Verm mix with 1/2 BRF add enough water to make it moist. close massonry jar with double tin foil instead of that cap. boil for 1-2 hours on high heat. let cool for a few hours then burn tip of spore syringe then insert through tin foil on the sides 4 times an insert 5 cc each insert. cover with another layer of tin foil over it set somewere dark and warm for a week so innoculation can occur.

(part two casing) Take the cake and crumble onto 1 inch layer of mixed soil and verm. then coverwith another inch thick layer of verm and soil. being sure to mist each layer. then mist sides and cover with tin foil. set somewere dark and warm until fully colonised. then each day mist and give 1-2 hours light and air exchange.

(part three picking) Once mushrooms are done growing (there gills are exposed) pick gentley. done.

(part four Questions)
Q- How can i EASILY dry those wonderful fruits? thanks.

Yes, this will work. I have done it exactly like you said, except I didnt case. It will take longer than a week to colonize, 3 or 4 weeks on avg. Look in the faq for drying info. If you would have read the faq, this post would not have been necesary

How big is this jar you are wanting to use? For the bottom layer of the casing just use straight verm. Also, it is going to take longer than a week to colonize the BRF/Verm.

Cool. Sounds like a fairly good plan except for the spore part. 20cc of spore solution is way to high. You only need a couple of CCs for quart jars so use that to judge how much you need. 1CC is plenty for a half pint jar. Oh yeah, one more thing, use 2 parts verm, 1 part BRF, and 1 part water. The water may need to be adjusted a bit, but the 2:1 BRF/verm ratio is a good one. Good luck!

using nutrient rich potting soil as a casing layer is a no-no
key words are "nutrient rich"
you do NOT want any nutrients in your casing layer... it will introduce contams....
stick with JUST VERM or coir + verm, or coir, verm ,peat, lyme, etc

The casing layer should be "non-Nutrient"

If you are just starting with casing you should use straight Verm with water(don't use hard water or well water) and hydrogen peroxide(cut down the contams)
