first time casing soon coming
    #2266453 - 01/23/04 06:37 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I'll have about 8 pints of millet colonized in a few days. I've been reading and I think I'm gonna use peat moss and vermiculite for the top, and perlite on the bottom. I did some grain to grain transfers of golden teachers for some jars, and the others I injected with gulf coast spores. The ones I injected are actually growing faster then the grain transfers. They are in the same incubator and I rotate the jars. Are golden teachers slow or are the gulf coast fast colonizers? Any tips for casing would be great. Whats the easiest way to sterilize the casing layers that isn't to time consuming?

The easiest way to sterilize casing material is this...

microwave about 5 min strir, and microwave 5 min more and cool.

now depending on the amount of casing material you are sterilizing 5 min may be too much.

I load wet coir into a half pint. cover with saran wrap and nuke for 3 min. I let that cool and then case with it.

If you do want to use peat I belive lime is needed to adjust the ph. Coir and verm can be used without ph adjustment. I would suggest a 60/40 mix of the two. Check out Starter's awesome work in the growlog forum.
