Compost casing - Humidity tent
    #2951826 - 08/01/04 02:39 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

The white webs are spreading! And in anticipation of fruiting I am wondering if compost could be substituted for peat in the 50/50 casing mix. Seems like it would be more nutritous (my plants love this stuff) and compost is more a nuetral PH that peat, so not as much PH adjustment(if any)would be needed right?

Also if I'm casing maybe 10 oven pans - instead of using a bunch of rubbermaid containers for a fruiting chamber, has anyone just built a simple poly dome, I was thinking 5x5 with an air-bubblers in water for humidity/air movement? Any tips or other suggestion are greatly appreciated

Thanks

Three things tell the myc to fruit. Light, air exchange, and lack of nutrients in the substrate. Also with the compost exposed you would most likely have some contam issues.
