Few questions for some experienced green thumbs
    #2129796 - 11/23/03 01:04 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Ok im getting back into things after a year of absence and just went out and picked up a few things. I need to grab a few more things but i have a few ?'s first...
I have a 18 gallon Sterilite dark blue container
20 - 60 Gallon Double Air pump
10 - 30 Gallon Fully submersible heater
My first question is Will my air transfer be too much if i run it non stop? There is no setting on the pump itself for how much air it pushes per hour so im kinda worried about the air exchange being too much for proper growth.
Second ? is that i picked up some soil for when i case and i was reading the bag after i got it and this is what it contains:
Mushroom Compost
Composted Manures
Peat Humus
Bark Fines
Sand
Vermiculite
Perlite
Dolomotic Limestone

My question has to do with the limestone in it. This is the description it gives: Made from the mineral rock dolomite. Good source of calium and magnesium , acts as a neutralizer , bringing the acidity closer to a neutral range.Releases phosphorous and potash from other insuluable compounds making them readily available.

If i recall right any casing material that contains limestone isnt good or is my mind leading me in the wrong direction?

No such thing as too much air exchange provided you keep humidity up. I would suggest you run it all the time and fan twice a day. Those air pumps don't move all that much air.

High magnesium content in the casing layer has been found to be bad for the growth of Agaricus species.
To my knowledge no research for P. cubensis has ever been done.

Get some coca coir, aka coconut fibre. Wells well, completely organinic. You buy it by the brink at hydro and possibly garden stores.

Coir and fiber are not the same.

Coir on the left.

just visit a small pet shop, ask them to order some bed-a-beast for you.

i picked up 20 bricks (small ones) for 2.90$ us each

and as a general guideline, one brick is good enough for 6 casings that are 9''wx7''lx 4'' tall
