Casing with Wormcasing - A quick question
    #2403202 - 03/04/04 04:51 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I was wondering whether I could do a casing with the following layer. In order from top.

1/2 inch 50/50 mix
crumbled PF cake
1 inch worm casing
1/2 inch 50/50 mix.

It this a good idea. Will the worm casing increase the yeild.

Will it also take longer to colonize.


Thanks,
dan17511

I would mix the worm casing and the crumbled cakes together.. that will speed the colonization alot and cut on the chance of contaminations.


don't use 1/2 inch of top casing either. use about 1/8th or less and then just patch as needed. 1/2 inch of casing will take a long time to colonize and it will probably hurt your flush than help it.

I just put mine in a bag and microwave it for about 10 minutes (for approx 10lbs). Mixing worm castings and coir or vermiculite helps to keep it all from drying out.

I never used worm casing before. I am more of a textbook kinda guy on worm casings.  I just couldn't put worms to work like that. :grin: :wink:

I think you would pasterize it but sterilize couldn't hurt either. :laugh:

BTW, did you make your own or buy it?

Not the middle left, the Far left. I know thats you. Or at least, I know thats a person and not a dogs ass. Perhaps this will better illustrate.

I want to apologize, I am a OTD and gathering mod also.. I will always go off topic as its in my nature now. :smile:


P.S. like this post, it has nothing to do with this thread but I am posting to clarify myself.

Thanks.

*shruggs

1:10 is the ratio I believe.  so for every one 1/2 pint cake, you can use 10 1/2 pints of worm casing. :smile:  hope that helps.

MISTER BLACK:

How much Coir do you mix with your wormcasing.

Also, How thick should the (wormcasing/crumbled 1/2 PFJar) be.


thanks,
dan17511

20% is a good amount to add to manure. so I figure the same.

>How thick should the (wormcasing/crumbled 1/2 PFJar) be.

make it as thick as you want! dude, it all depends on the side of your pan your using to make a substrate(wormcasing/crumbled 1/2 PFJar). I have seen 1" flat casing get great flushes and I have seen 5 inch casings get great flushes. paul stamets recommends you make the substrate(wormcasing/crumbled 1/2 PFJar) about 5-6 inchs deep. that will yeild the best flush or the hardy flush.

Another quick question.

About how long will it take to start fruitng, uses 2 1/2 PF cakes in this situation. Does a deeper substrate mean a longer time to fruit.

thanks.

you need to put it back in the incubator and let it colonize first.. then case it. then place it back into the incubator chamber again and patch up the holes.(total time 1-4 weeks)

then place in fruit chamber. give it opitium temps.(1-2 weeks)


that whole process can be from 2 weeks all the way up to 6 weeks. it depends on how it works out and if you give it the best temps. on average it take about 3-4 weeks till you start seeing pins.
