Question about peat moss
    #1948254 - 09/24/03 04:30 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I am quite new to the mushroom world and I currently in the middle of my first attempt using the PF cake's method. I have been researching alot on the subject of mushroom cultivation and I would like to know if the peat moss that is soil like (contains water) is OK or should only the dry stuff be used?
I would be using it for a casing in the 50/50 tek.

Thanks in advance.

if you use coco coir (brand name Bed-A-Beast, available at pet stores as reptile bedding) you won't have to fiddle around with the pH like you would with peat...

what you've got will work fine. peat is moistened before use anyway. remember that peat is fairly acidic, so unless you can access coir as suggested above, you'll need to think about buffers.
