Uncolonized substrate in casing?
    #2281546 - 01/28/04 07:04 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

What would happen if I added a bunch of uncolonized substrate to a casing with colonized substrate? Would the mycelium attempt to colonize all of this substrate? I'm thinking of casing a couple extra PF Jars, but I was thinking this might be a way to increase yeilds. For example, if I added two jars worth of uncolonized substrate to two jars of colonized substrate in the casing, would the resulting casing fruit as if four jars were cased, if given extra time to colonize?

take longer for the mycelium to recover and grow on the new substrate. Increase contams and it will use up more water for the new growth, so you have to make sure your casing layer is moist.


I was talkin to a guy on here, forget his name, but he knew what he was talking about. He told me to do 2 5 pound spawn bags of wbs and let it spawn to straw. the yields he got were amazing...

From popcorn grain to casing it. [Re: pazuzu]
    #4796212 - 10/13/05 01:57 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I have been doing to PF tek jars using the brown rice/ vermiculite and then crumbling and casing that with the vermiculite and it has been working great Now I am moving on to the popcorn grain quart jars. So my question is how do I case the popcorn into the vermiculie? Can I crumble it the same way? Break it up inside the jar or what? I have been looking all over this site and cannot find the frigging answer to that question - lol - Ay help will be great, because the jars are almost ready to go. Thanks!!! Adios - Peace - everyone...

Do you mean case the popcorn or use it as spawn to something else? Start your own thread next time to ask a question like this.

Too case the popcorn, just like I have been doing with the brown rice and vermiculite jars. It should work the same way right? I should just break up the popcorn when I take it out of the jar. Any suggestions? One more question , how do I start a new string for next time? Thanks a lot...
