ask Alounacara ,i seem to remember a grow of his where he said he did that.Basicly you put perlite on bottom,thencolonized substrate,then in your case you would put a layer of jiffy mix.As far as the specifics,i dont know,its not the norm.Ive read it before,but i always used a bottom layer of verm,and i believe thats what most use if any.

Why do you want to use something like perlite for a casing layer when you know it will only bring you grief? Use vermiculite or co co coir, there both really cheap and theres a reason why everyone here uses them instead of perlite. Good luck.

Looking at what it says in here http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/24283 I'm wondering how you incorporate perlite in a fruiting chamber (large plastic bin) that has seperate casing chambers in it (tupperware containers)
Would putting a bunch of perlite across the bottom of the bin under the casing containers provide enough humidity for the casings? How thick of a layer do you think would work well?

I want to use casings because it seems they help a lot, but perlite looks like the easiest and most convenient form of humidification but in another thread someone told me it wasn't possible to use them in the same grow although the FAQ says otherwise.

Perlite is used as a bottom layer in many European casings that come in kits. The reason it?s there is to provide a little moisture to the casing, and to give myc piss a place to run off to (the main reason it?s there).

Perlite is not meant to be used as a top casing layer in that case it defeats the purpose of having the casing layer as the top layer is to provide a source of moisture to the growing shrooms.
