Are you looking for a substrate or a casing layer?

Coco coir bricks can be found at most pet shops and hydro shops. Plain verm can also be used.

Top soil works, just pick out the wood bits. I used super soil brand and it was pretty full of wood bits so I'd use another brand that doesn't have added ferts.

Schultz cactus potting mix works pretty good for something off the shelf.

You use it to "case" over the substrate. The mycelia grows up through the casing, which keeps it nice and moist.

YOu use an inch of casing on both top and bottom. Think of the casing as a moisture blanket. Using just lime is a really bad idea, you are trying to get the pH nuetral and lime is alkaline all the way. If all else fails use the cactus soil as suggested. Add a pinch of your lime flour to that.

"There is a world beyond ours, a world that is far away, nearby, and invisible. And there is where God lives, where the dead live, the spirits and the saints, a world where everything has already happened and everything is known. That world talks. It has a language of its own. I report what it says. The sacred mushroom takes me by the hand and brings me to the world where everything is known. It is they, the sacred mushrooms, that speak in a way I can understand. I ask them and they answer me. When I return from the trip that I have taken with them, I tell what they have told me and what they have shown me."

Depending on the size of the casing will determine the layer's depth. If you have a 1 inch layer of substrate you want a 1/4 inch casing layer. Good rule of thumb is casing layer 1/4 the depth of the substrate.
