Has anyone cased with just vermiculite?
    #1923174 - 09/16/03 10:45 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Would the benefits of casings be had if you just did a sandwich of vermiculite and broken up brf jars? I want to do a casing that doesn't envolve containers of casings within a terrarium. I bought some rubbermaid tubs, and I'm thinking about what would happen if you just sort of combined a couple ideas, like having a layer of moist verm, layer of brf mycelia, then another layer moist verm on top. Or, would this same idea work better with perlite on the bottom? I know this has probably been covered, but its hard to search for exact questions.


also, unrelated, after making a spore print, those caps can be eaten right? I mean it seems like they would be. just checking.

Another idea i guess wanted comments about, was how the PF tek says to put cakes directly onto moist perlite in the bottom of a fruiting chamber, so i was just wondering if that method can just be taken a step or two further, and instead of placing cakes directly on the perlite, just crumble and top with verm. both the perlite and the verm. need to be over sterilized right?

See that's what confused me. I see your point. But I've been told verm, myc, verm, no perlite. Apparently w/ a casing, it's humid enough, and perlite is not needed.

I've used verm for casing it worked great.

This is the result of casing 3" of rye berries over 1/2" of perlite and topping with 3/8" of verm....

It's a copy of a common kit sold by several vendors in the Netherlands and the U.K..

Use the "grain for simple minds" tek and case your fully colonized rye berries as I described, using a plastic tub.

Then you can either fruit it in a filter patch bag (as shown) or use a simple terrarium.

I purchased 19 of those wonderful kits and I'm still using the tubs and bags to make my own "kits" now (a year later). Each one produces over an ounce dried in 4 or more flushes. (I've gotten as many as seven.)

You answered your own question, Mr. no-nip!

It acts as a reservoir to feed the substrate it's much needed water. It sucks the water up from the bottom and spits shrooms out the top!
