my casing smells super funky
    #2617967 - 04/29/04 08:12 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

i've cased with potting soil in the past with success, in fact, I have casings done with soil that are doing well. However, a couple of the casings that used soil smell funky... kinda like methane. I'm hypothesizing that it's bacterial activity since I don't see any signs of mold or visible contamination what so ever. What's going on, will I get mushies off these casings???

BTW:
these casing are only 1 week old
the substrate appears to be fine (nice and white and fuzzy)
i used the 50/50+ tek but i left out the oystershell and replaced the
peat moss with potting soil

when in doubt throw it outside and let nature take over.....why dont you just use some coir or verm. Both will give you better results IME

i noticed peat moss is better than potting soil... anyone have any ideas why? and can anyone tell me what else i could do to my casing instead of tossing it?
