Casin try from the food storage
    #2026312 - 10/20/03 06:49 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I have a growkit (Strophoria Cubensisthat) i have had its third flush with just today. Anyway since i figure it wont grow very much anymore i thought abouth braking upp the cake and casing it, maby ittl will grow our maby it wont. Anyway i figure the contamination risk should be quite small since the cake by now should be well able to defend against contams. Buth my problem wash i dident actually had anything to case with so i scrambled around my home and mixed wath i could find that seemd to logically work. So the casing consists of perilit at the bottem, the broken up cake, and finally a mixture of planting soil pufferd rice red lenses and shugar. The myceline should be able to grow in it thou very slow. Wath i am asking now is am i completley nuts? Is this a 100% shure contam setup. Our will the shrooms not even grow in the soil? O and if your wondering OF CORSE i have steralised all the casing soil and so on.

The sugar and rice will contaminate. The point of a casing is (taken from the faq, taken from TMC)
1.) To protect the colonized substrate from drying out.
2.) To provide a humid microclimate for primordia formation and development.
3.) To provide a water reservoir for the maturing mushrooms.
4.) To support the growth of fructification enhancing microorganisms.
(TMC, p 128 -129)

What you don't want, is a nutritious layer that can rot/contaminate.

Actually i dident have any shugar ither at home (DEFENENTLEY time to go shopping) buth i did mix in the puffed rice. Will it really contaminate? I mean after being mixed in woth the earth and baked at 250 C for over 60 minuits and taking into consideration that the product vash dry from the begining i mean considering those factors it shouldent be able to rot and since its sterile not contam ither.

Ps having red this i wont try of corse i am not up for toying with my life.

Althou i thought the goal of casing wash to simulate natural conditions meaning earth over mycelia and shrooms growing up from it, sereous misunderstanding there.

Casing something won't add any nutrients.
