spawn and vermiculite mix?
    #2200759 - 12/25/03 09:51 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

does anyone mix vermiculite in with their spawn [popcorn or wbs] when making a casing. in addition to the top casing layer? it could help by retaining more water. or is the top layer alone enough?

When I fruit from grain I mix in about 25% damp sterilized verm before casing it. As you said, it provides more moisture for prolonged fruiting.

If I am using the grain as spawn for bulk I do not bother.
