casing layer
    #2980301 - 08/09/04 04:09 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

hello guys,long time no see. I have grown pf style jars a few times and once i made 2 casings "almost" successful. I say almost because the yield was much smaller than it should, don't know why.
The casing layer i had used was only vermiculite.

Now that i am growing again i wanna apply another better casing layer (not poo,straw etc because they are difficult to find here in Athens). I was thinking if i could put verm/peat moss. if yes how much should i put (i mean 40%verm 60%peat moss or 50/50?)?.
And how will i sterilize it? putting it in a jar and boiling it would be enough?
thanks in advance

You can use a variety of different casing layers. If you can find it, coco coir is cheap, easy to use, fast colonizing, and can be pasteurized in a micowave easily. If you can't find it you could use a vermiculite and/or peat casing layer, such as the 50/50+ tek. There is a lot more info on this in the shroomery faq. You should check it out there
