Large Casings VS Small Casings; My Results
    #2277613 - 01/27/04 02:52 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

The difference between using small casings and large casing is like night and day.

The small casings were about 8x4x3 (LxWxD) with casing layers just covering top and bottom of substrate. The results were awesome. Ivan had about 6 flushes come off one off the casings most averaged about 4 flushes. the final fushes were small but still was a flush.

The large casings were pretty big. They were about 16x11x5 Ivan had a deep substrate layer about 2"-2.5". With about one inch of casing layer. Results were disappointing. Ivan had 1 big flush and one very small flush which was followed by a contam.

The environment remained the same for both sized casings. They are in a PMP and at lower temps for fruiting. The flushes are not comparable at all. Ivan had way bigger flushes using the small containers with 0 contams. They are less work and if you get a contam, you still have many other casings to yield what you have been waiting and working for.

Those were Ivan's results.

I once did a casing that was a 25 gallon rubbermaid (Idont know the dementions) and on the first flush alone I got about 7 dry ounces. second about 4 and third was like 2 then contamed but it was well worth it. I here you on the smaller ones if one goes bad you still have more.

That is 13 dry grams or 130 grams wet?!?!? That does not sound like a good flush for that much substrate at all.

I've started just casing my half pint jars as soon as they are fully colonized. It's just that I recently have been getting contams and crappy flushes and I was looking for a very low risk alternative to casing without just using cakes.

So what I came up with is just, once the jars are colonized, just scrape out the dry verm layer and add a 1/4" or so of coco coir/verm casing to the jars and cover the bottom and sides with something to block light. I've just been using black tape. Aluminum foil will work as well.
Then just let the casing layer colonize and then fruit.

I got the first one in the fruiting chamber right now with others to follow shortly. And that's the real beauty of it also. If one or so jars are ready before others, you don't have to wait.

I should have some results from this very shortly.

Want to try the planters people use for window sills. the long planters that arent really wide but are a good 6" deep. the problem is the season. It's hard to find those in the winter. I think they will work great because of their size.

I've just started on my newest project after quite an interesting Christmas break (to all of you who've noticed I've been gone...I'm back).

I did two pretty big casings with six one pint cakes in each casing. I had very good results last time with three one pint cake casings (I got around six dry ounces) so hopefully this will be even better.

No question is so difficult to answer as that to which the answer is obvious.

i'm of the opinion that large casings are more efficient than smaller ones.

Depends on the mushroom being grown, and the conditions that they are growing in.

Next time try one small change (if you do another big casing) Make sure the casing layer is 25% of the substrate depth. Or use a 1/2 inch of casing for a two inch deep substrate.
