quick casing question!!
    #3017499 - 08/18/04 11:20 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

hello guys. I have a few colonised verm/brf cakes from which i want to make casings. The only things i can find expect verm and brf are hay and dung.

What do u suggest to make the casing from?
Maybe i could spawn dung from the cakes,let it colonise and then should i put a casing layer? what do u suggest?

thanks

~Straw is ok to fruit from without a casing, not as good as cased, but still pretty fine, hay isnt as good. You must be able to find straw?

only what i said above can be found.

If i would spawn dung witht he brf cakes , let it colonise and then put potting soil as a top casing layer?
what do u think,will it be successful?
(dung and potting soil will be pasteurized of course)

Question is do you just want a casing or do you want to bulk up? A casing can be had from the cakes themselves or you can do the lazymans ziplock tek where ya just make up 4 times the jars of BRF without the verm layer. Then dump 4 of these uncolonized cakes in a gal. ziplock add one colonized cake seal and squeeze the F^@& out of it, this will expand your substrate 4 fold. Flatten the bags somewhat then once fully colonize crumble into nickel sized chunks fill your trays LEVEL and case (sometimes i'll cover with saran overnight first before casing to allow the sub to reknit a bit :wink: Hay works like shit (not recommended) If ya can't find straw then maybe you can amend that dung with verm? Just a thought :laugh: GL Hamurabi

Yes, soil will work ok, but casing isnt 100% needed, you can fruit from colonised dung ok. Maybe wash the soil out a bit, to remove any nutes that are in it (or some of the nutes in it)

You don't have to use casing but yields will go up when casing, thats why I said It makes it so much more fun :wink: Potting soil tricked out with verm and pasturized will also make a decent casing mix One step better than nature. :laugh: Again GL and whatever you decide have fun!!!
