casing question
    #2433867 - 03/15/04 05:59 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I have some WBS soon going to be ready for casing ... My question is about straw , if i pasteurize it and then colonize it , can just fruit from straw or do i have to add a casing layer ( like peat+chalk or something ? )

If i need the casing layer then what could i use ? What do you usualy use ? Can i use like rabbit poo ( have a whole bunch in my bacyard ... )  with straw on colonized straw ?  :shiftyeyes:

the faq is your friend, try to read up a bit, then ask
what your unsure about.

You can fruit of straight straw.


Rabbit poo is a very bad idea as a casing, casing need to
be lacking mutrients.

with straw a casing is a good idea as straw dries out quickly but it will work without it

for questions like this, I tend to look at nature... when cubes are growing on straw in nature... do they need a casing layer? sounds kinda simple if you look at it that way.. now to gain the best yields I would use a casing layer.

Thanks fot helping guys , ill use a top casing layer made of peat mixed with some chalk to get good PH , on colonized straw ...

I can't belive what happened to my jars , this is my first growth , i thought the jars were messed up and i was thinking of theowing them away , but yesterday i saw some white marks on the seeds , today it is growing incredibly fast , the mycelium can be seen on every side of jar ( where i inculated - 5 holes ) ... When should i give the jars one last shake ? at some 10 % colonization ?

I understand that, but some mushrooms species require a casing in order to fruit, cubes do not require a casing to fruit. the use of the casing is simply to add moisture. If I had my MMC book in front of me, I would quote the paragraph and page talking about it.
