Casing with nutrative or nonnutrative material??
    #2958176 - 08/02/04 11:51 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

    Hey alll!  I've seen advice that you can pasteurize things like compost, peat moss, poo, etc.  And after pasteurizing for an hour or so, these materials ought to be okay to use for casing.
      But I've also seen posts that argue that non-nutrative casing materials are best as these prevent contams from setting in before the myc. fully colonizes the casing. 
      So which way is best?  Anyone have thoughts on the matter?  Many thanks! :grin:

Non-nutritive casing material, clearly.

non-nutritive is for casings.
if you're using a nutritive layer (such as pasteurized compost), you are just adding another substrate layer.

Read the FAQ.

Thanks. I guess I was getting my terminology mixed up. I was confusing spawning to bulk substrates with casing your colonized substrate. Thank you. Sorry for the newb question.
