Is potting soil an OK casing mix?
    #2009714 - 10/14/03 11:12 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Is a general potting soil an OK mix for casing, or will the fertalizers contaminate the mushrooms?

I've heard you can use potting soil, but have no experience with it.

To me, it seems inferior to the accepted casing formulas that consistently produce.

Give it a shot and let us know what you think.
