newbie casing question
    #2357199 - 02/20/04 01:22 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Hello, im starting my first grow, just got my jars sterilized and added the spores, I'd like to case a few of the cakes (1/2 pint jars) ive read that i can just use vermiculite for casing. I have 2 large plastic containers (one to use as a fruiting container, one to use to case) i know to sterilize the vermiculite for the casing and also the containers and such, would adding more brown rice flour to the casing be advisable (as in using the same materials for a PF jar for casing)? or would that contribute more to contamination?

Definately don't add brown rice flour to the casing. You should only put colonized substrate in the casing. By putting uncolonized nutrient-rich material in a casing you will defenitely have problems.

Yeah, adding the brf is a bad idea unless you want a mold garden. Actually vermiculite is supposed to be sterile straight from the bag. I've used it without sterilizing and had no troubles but its up to you.
