2 stupid quick questions
    #3261367 - 10/21/04 07:16 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

1) For my upcoming casing I am using 50% pure peat moss and 50% verm. I shouldn't need to add anything for the pH or wnything like that right?
2) Is there an increase in flush size/potency when using popcorn or rye rather than the PF Tek meathod, or is it just faster colonization times?

1) Right. I did it like that before with no probs... just mixed, used distilled water, and pced the casing mix.

2) Faster colonization which lets you do more substrate, allowing for bigger yields.

Everything I say on this board is a lie.

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

1)Yes you absolutly should mix something in to balance pH. Just because you got it to work once, does not mean thats how it should be done for repeated success for everyone. Peat should have crushed oyster shells added to it to adjust the pH.

2)Not only faster colonization (not a little faster either, were talking 3-4 times the substrate being done in the same, or less time) but also you will get bigger flushes. No one really knows if whole grains produce more potent mushrooms then BRF or not, but they certainly arent weaker :smile:

If I can't get oyster shells, what else can I use? How much?

I picked up some coral calcium pills from Eckerd and put those in my mix. I used about 10 pills for one casing. Seems to be going fine so far. Eggshells also work, just make sure you sterilize them good and powder them.
