Case question
    #3106199 - 09/08/04 12:43 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Would I be able to make a casing with the same substrate I did with my jars, vermiculite and brown rice flour. Why do all the recipes for substrate invole other substances? Technically this would work right. My only guess is that this isnt used because it would take to long to colonize through it all, am I right?

I'm no expert but the reason you use other materials is because they are good to support "structural" growth of mushrooms rather than your substrate which provides the nutrients. Mushrooms  happen to like to grow on things like peat moss, verm, and coir due to their coarseness, ability to absoarbe water well etc. Things that BRF, or WBS, or millet just can't provide on their own. Hope that helped a bit. :crazy:

Hey man,
The purpose of using the other materials is to protect your spawn from contaminants.  By casing with verm and BRF you are putting uncolonized materials and nutrients on top of your spawn, allowing for contaminants to colonize and ruin all of your hard work.  The purpose of your casing layer isn't to add nutrients, but rather to protect your mycellium from danger.  Good luck with your goods :smile:

As the last person said, NO.

This would lead to guaranteed contamination. I have never seen a casing tek that says use BRF. Straight up verm is what dude has used sucessfully but there are an endless number of casing possibilities out there.

Experiment and find what you like, but stick to the teks in the beginning to leave little room for error. :thumbup:

Straightup answer? NO! Not only because of the fact that contams love nutes but also the fact that myc loves it too! :wink: This means that the myc will continue to consume (vegetive growth) BRF which is NOT what you want! You want generative (fruiting) growth. Just another reason why you don't use any nutes in the casing! :wink: A casing is a water reservoir. GL and Welcome friend :laugh:
