CONFIRMATION NEEDED PLS RESPOND

Friend placed an order for compost. several ? pint jars are ready to go. when it's time to crumple up the substrate to add to the compost does there need to be any type of "layer underneath ? Example:

1. Pearlite/vermiculite on (pre moistened to field capacity) the bottom.
2. 2nd layer crumpled up mycelium and compost. (once compost is colonized then:
3. Add the casting layer, (50/50 peat moss or more compost).

Oh by the way compost is by a shroomery vendor. I've seen the cake method, and have done searches for other poo teks, Sooo 3 layers as stated above or something else?

1. no bottom layer is needed
2. crumble cake with compost as evenly as you can
3. add casing layer later after the casing has colonized.

Agree with above except when using cakes as spawn i perfer to place in a blender and make a nice sand out them and sprinkle very evenly i find this to be the best for point to point contact. Good luck

WoW!!!!  put them in a blender???    So in trying this bulk grow, what about incubation none needed?  An incubator is only needed for cakes is this correct?


Also if i do as you say, (and I will) (a blender) :whoa: can I case with the same material OR do i need to use 50/50 peat moss?  Thank you in advance
