popcorn + old casing mix on the bottom of jar?
    #3071702 - 08/31/04 01:19 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I bought a casing mix from a old shroomery sponser (micromagick)
it consist of oylster shells, verm, peat moss and a lil lime they say it blaneced the ph , i dont no what the ph should be but whatever


i have more popcorn for the next 12 jars and i was reading over posts and whatnot and heard verm as a bottom layer to popcorn is highly recommended. not a huge bottem layer since after inncolation popcorn should be shaked and the 7th day of spawnning shake as well. but verm keeps such bacteria, contams out even if not on a top layer or is this not true?

would my casing mix work as a subsitute to the bottom layer of verm?

thank you

Not true.

The top layer verm technique is supposed to eliminate any contamination entering the substrate from the top when you inoculate your jars. It provides a non-nutritive barrier to contamination. Peat based casing layers are far more prone to contamination than vermiculite alone...
