Can this be used?
    #3008392 - 08/16/04 10:52 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Ok I was shopping verm today when I came across something. I bought a bag with me just in case. it is 1 part cow manure and 2 parts peat moss. I was thinking this can be used as casing? If so, should I mix this with anything? Some verm perhaps?

Another thing. When using popcorn tek, can popcorn for microwave be used?

No do not use it (poo/peat)! Casing needs to be kept nutrient poor for two reasons guys! #1 Casing soil is a buffer and water reservoir only any nutrients increase your odds of contams. #2 Listen up guys this is important once myc reaches up through the nute poor casing it trigger a generative response BECAUSE there is no nutes otherwise it will continue to assimilate everything in its path. If your gonna do it and do it right. :wink: GL

If your talking substrate FOR a casing then I would also suggest mixing it with shredded straw depending on the structure of your mix if it too dense it will not colonize properly. I was under the impression that you were talking casing as in casing soil :wink: GL
