When to case?
    #2640323 - 05/05/04 05:52 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Hi all,

I've got this friend of a friend, and he's trying to grow some gourmet, edible mushrooms. Here's what he did:

1. Colonized quart jars of WBS
2. Pasteurized worm castings in oven bags
3. Dumped some jars in the bags and let them colonize in there for a few days before pouring into trays.
4. Dumped the other jars in the bags, mixed them up, and poured them directly into the trays to colonize there.

His question:
Should the casing layer be applied immediately? Or should he wait for the mycelium to start colonizing the worm castings more? (there's just little white puffs growing everywhere right now) How much should they be colonized before applying the casing layer?

Also, should the birdseed have been spawned to the worm castings inside the bags, or should they have been mixed up and then allowed to colonize in the trays? (just for future reference)

Many thanks from my friend of a friend

I like to apply the casing layer as soon as i spawn just a added protection layer some like it to be fully colonized first matter of opinion.
