Re: whats a good casing mix

I use 50/50 verm/potting soil for both top and bottom. I usually just cook it up in the microwave or the oven to steralize it. As for moisture I just put some water in with it until it is pretty moist then before I spread it into the container I ring it out real good with my hands until it doesnt drip. If it starts getting dry later on, just mist it a little.

I usually just grow the shrooms straight from the cake. Would you mkae like a 2 in layer of half verm + half soil then crumble a layer of cakes then put another 2 in of half and half?

I use verm and soil on the bottom, soil on top. It's Shroom Wizard's Tek, I've had three cakes (one casing) go bad outta 18 cakes (six casings :tongue:). It's my first time cultivating so I'm pretty happy...although if I had known better I wouldn't have needed all those back up batches...hmmm.

My favorite martian uses peat moss buffered with about 2% lime. Wet until a little water trickles out when you squeeze a handful. Baked in oven for 2 hrs. at 180 F(low setting). Spread out an inch deep over rye grain spawn. Covered with tinfoil with 24 1/8" holes for a 1 ft. X 2 ft. tray. Let sit 3 days, deep scratch then put in humidity box. Perfect everytime.
