Gonna attempt my first casing...question
    #3179489 - 09/25/04 06:19 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I have an 18" x 13" x 2.5" aluminum baking pan for casing.

My question is, how much colonized substrate is this going to require?

I have a bunch of pint and have pint sized cakes to use.

Going with 50/50 potting soil and verm.

Figure what will fill the pan 3/4 then the rest is for the casing.

Yep! Crumble into nickel sized chunks and make sure that substrate is as level as you can get it! :wink: 3pts. would work better but two will work for sure and don't put that casing mix on too thick for that depth substrate I'd recommend 1/2-3/4in. max. GL

I had problems before with too deep casing layer. It produces much less in the outcome if the top layer is like half as thick as the substrate level. Hyphae had exelent advice yet again, just keep in thin.

Everything I say on this board is a lie.

Eat more string cheese. It's good for you.
