Coco Coir Casing Question
    #3040866 - 08/23/04 09:14 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I am about to prepare my casing and I am going to use Coco Coir.

I have 3 questions for you.

1. How deep of a layer of crumbled colonized material do I need to put in the bottom of my loaf pans?

2. How deep of a layer of coco coir do I need to put on top of the Colonized Material?

3. When I put the casings back into my plastic containers for the casings to colonize, what temperature do I need to keep them at?

Now finally when I put the casings into the fruiting chamber what temp do I need to keep the casings at and what humidity do they need to be kept at?

thank you so very much for your assistance,

Mb

As much as you want. I have done 1" 2" and 3" layers.

2. How deep of a layer of coco coir do I need to put on top of the Colonized Material?





1/4 of the depth of the substrate. A 1" substrate will need a 1/4" casing layer. A 2" will need a 1/2" layer. A 3" will need a 3/4" layer.

3. When I put the casings back into my plastic containers for the casings to colonize, what temperature do I need to keep them at?





Standard room temp, or growth temp (70-83F)

The same (70-83F) keep the humidity at 85% to 95%.


Just a note: I have done casings with just coco-coir and ones that were 50% coco-coir and 50% vermiculite. I found through my experience that 100% coco-coir overlays for me where 50/50 seems to do great. But that is just my personal findings, everyone will have different experiences.

The 50/50 works better (I suspect) because the verm holds extra water in comparison to just coco coir, but the coco coir helps keep the verm from clumping like it would if you used just verm allowing easier spaces for pins to pop through.
