    #2341128 - 02/16/04 02:46 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Hey guys, time to try something new. Ivan wants a little info about worm castings and where to buy it? I know i could get it at a bait shop, but would home depot, or any other nursery have it??

Thanks Guys

do a google search for hydroponics shops in your area... some garden centers carry it and you can also search google for worm farms and at the least the bait store can give ou a line on the worm farms... farms always have plenty to sell

I found worm casting at my local home depot... or was it lowes. I forget but it was at one of those hardware stores.

Penalties against drug use should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against the possession of marijuana and mushrooms in private for personal use.

i was going to use it for some casings to get the hang of it, then try bulk later on. Is it cool to prepare the castings the same way as P. moss or coir? I know when spawning to poo that pasteurizing is a must, but is worm casing different? Will sterilization hurt me? do i have to pasteurize it?

thanks

It should be pasteurized to preserve the beneficial microbes in the castings, but you can sterilize it and it will work that way too.

Worm poo is not a good choice for a casing layer (if I read your intent corretly) because it of its high level of nutrients. The casing layer should be non-nutritive, so as not to support the growth of competing fungi.

You should spawn to worm poo, let colonize, and then case with a non-nutritive layer.

okay... well ivan will do bulk soon, however if he does bulk in a rubbermaid, can he spawn it inside the rubbermaid? or does he NEED to use spawn bags????

thanks again guys

by all means just dump a few colonized jars itno the rubbermade and mix it in to the castings...

If Ivan doesn't need that many shrooms...he could spawn 1 jar to a large casing tray filled with castings and fruit that! :grin:
