How do you know how much.....(casing question)
    #1866254 - 08/30/03 05:39 PM (14 years, 24 days ago)

Well, after reading the FAQ forward and backwards, I still have one very important question. 

If I was doing WBS in quart jars...how much colonized substrate do I put in my casing container?  How many inches of colonized substrate do I lay in the container?  I must have missed this in the faq because I just spent the last hour looking frantically for it. 

And if you were going to do 1 average sized casing...how many quart jars of colonized substrate would that take?

Sorry for my weird question... :tongue:

truly,
ShadeGirl

nothing wierd about the question - there's no right answer.  :smile: shallow for smaller fruits, deep for bigger ones. i prefer bigger fruits.

if the container is large, then ten huge jarfuls will only give you an inch depth. if, however, you took a casing tub about the size of a loaf of bread, and used about three or four quart jars, you should get a nice few inches of substrate.

add the casing about 1/4 the thickness again.

well, within reason. if it was a foot deep, still a couple of inches would be all you'd need. there doesn't seem to be any benefit in designing a project with more than 6" deep substrate - the shrooms don't end up like oak trees.
