straw casing question
    #3249471 - 10/12/04 11:28 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

when casing with straw , can you just mix straight colonized wbs w/straw or do you have to mix coir & oyster or some type of substrate with it?

I just mixed my straw with straight up spawn, seemed to work alright for me :smile:  I am a little curious myself about adding oyster shell (calcium carb) after the first flush to balance the pH, but the first flush seemed ok.

You can put the straw and colonized substrate in your container, cover them with tin foil and put them in the dark until they fully colonize. Then you put a casing layer over that. A common casing layer recipe is coir/vermiculite.

I am talking about doing a bulk grow - I read grow reports of up to a half pound with straw - Was just wondering if anything else besides straw is used?
