hey dude

i read about as many ppl saying yes to a bottom layer as of ppl saying
no.

some say, it sucks up too much humidity and its good,
others say that it rots when it sucks up the humidity and it sucks.

guess ull have to try and see urself.

Wouldn't do a casing without a verm bottom layer.

Others will say different.

Yeah, same here. I don't know why I always say just verm. Common Hanky you know by now I'm a lazy fuck :lol:. I just mix up one batch of casing material. Whatever I'm using, if it goes on top I just put it on the bottom too. Plain verm, plain coir, verm and coir, don't matter.

It does help folks, if you put it in moist it gives a little extra moisture for the casing to draw from and gives that nasty myc piss a place to run off to.

Go the double casing

I think for cakes Verm is the best but for bulk definitely Verm:coir

I grew in jars ala Polyfill style (fungifun.org)

Then scoop out ala mushmush.nl style

into rectangular takeaway containers lined the bottom with moist verma and the top with moist verm. Cover with alfoil to reknit

an dthen it fruits from both ends so i balance it on a small cup in the Perlite humidified terrarium.
works a treat
