My freind just started growing shrooms a little bit back. He couldnt find verm around where he lives so he did 2 jars with perlite insted while he waited for his verm to get here via ups. Both the jars are almost ready for birth now... the question is...

Since perlite evaporites (sp?) so quickly I've read it gives crappy fruiting. He wants to know if he should just fruit them, and rejoice over not screwing up his first time or try to do a casing with them.

It would be a stright verm casing. Of course, as just starting he has no experiance with it and hes kind of worried about contams.

So what do you guys think?

I would go ahead and do a casing. Its pretty simple.

Just make sure your casing containers are either dark, or taped up. You dont want light getting through into your substrate...(It causes mushrooms to form underneath = rot & ugly shrooms).

Wow... holy quick reply. I went to reread what I posted to make sure it makes sense and you already posted hehe.

But yea, he's done more than a fair share of research into it. So he knows to make the container dark (taped it up already for if he decided to).

Just wanted to bump this quick because the downtime is comming (eventually at least hehe), and I wanted to see if anyone else had any thoughts on this before I relay it to him at work tomorrow.

-sorry for the double post-
