casing soil pasterization and perlite
    #2979454 - 08/08/04 11:24 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Hi there!

Is it O.k. if I pasterize my casing soil (50/50 : peat/vermiculite+CaCO2) in hot water for 1 hour and then let it drain overnight? Or should i sterilize it in PC - though it's very hard for me to do this with larger amounts of it?

And those few days after casing is applied, when waiting for the micelium to break through the surface, is there any fanning necessery, or none allowed?

I have read some cautions and bad critics about perlite, what's the problem? I have this big box covered with plastic in which i intend to put plastic trays with compost. I thought to put the perlite on the bottom of this box to achieve humidity. What i don't know is how much perlite should i apply and how much water to add? And what about contamination issue with perlite?

tnx very much for your effort to answering my questions! nice shroom greeting!

If you fully immerse it in water wit will get soaked too much. Better steram it not immersed in water.

To answer your Q's...^^^ :rolleyes:
pasteurising will be of great benifit to the culture as it kills off competing organisms whilst preserving the beneficial ones.
Watch the time and the temp...and yes submerge fully with a brick or something.
