With casing, How cum you get better yields yet you still use the same amount of growing substrate?

Just say you use 4 pf cakes worth, wouldnt you get 4 cakes worth anyway?

Why/how does the casing increase the yields?

I've been reading the Teks, but cannont/missed the answers.

with the casing you are introducing more surface area exposure and more water...

Here is a quote from una's site, edited a tad from me.

Quote:

When the colonized substrate is poured into trays which are cased a much better volume/surface ratio can be achieved. This results in more mushrooms in less time compared to cased jars, or pf cakes (alienedit).





Once you try casing, you will be sold if you like faster turnovers.

does casing stay in the foil cassorole pan tho??? the cakes directly touch the perlite in the chamber and I think thats why I get such good mushrooms, cuz they drink up the perlite :smile:

ok so it more about the water content than it is about the nutrients.

Does make sense as mushies are 90%+ water by weight.


Thanks ppl

in fact, you want your casing not have the least nutrients as possible to ward off contams.
