Random questions for experienced growers:
    #3286560 - 10/27/04 10:08 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

1) How deep should I make my substrate for my casings? I don't want to make it the bare minimum, but I want to stretch it to as many casings as I can, what is a good between value?

2) Should I really scrap all of my quart jars for smaller jars?

3) What medium do you guys find colonizes the fastest and works easiest for casing?

4) Approximately how long does the entire fruiting of the casings take, including all of the flushes? I am trying to get a good guage for when I should inoculate my next batch of jars to keep a good perpetual fruiting.

Thanks in advance to anyone who could help!

1) 1.5 is really good. so, here's the range. 1.5-2"
2) don't transfer jars. If you want smaller jars, just make some more. If you are short on spores, look up liquid culture like karo or honey tek. It's under advanced cultivation->cultures.
3) You mean casing mix? Try either 60/40 or 50/50.. it's under advanced cultivation->casing
4) It depends on a lot of things. Setting time line is really hard without experience. I mean you will have different time line than others. You can probably do a batch every 2-3 weeks to keep it going. It doesn't hurt much to keep them in jars after after full colonization as long as it's not for weeks and weeks. Also, some people don't try to squeeze everything out of each casing. They just rotate after 3 or 4. So, that's upto you. Generally, first flush comes around 2-3 weeks after you make them, which is about 10-17 days after you put them in the terrarium. Subsequent harvest about a week apart.

I know.. I'm making it sound hard.. Time line is so difficult to guess given so many different parameters to consider. You have to go through a grow under the conditions you provide for the strain you have...

Sorry I can't be more specific..

No, you are answering all of my questions excellently.
What I meant by what medium works best for casing, is what
crumbles the best and is easiest to get a smooth, even layer.

I think everything considered...  grains...  definitely not cakes.  I thought rye was very very easy to make casing with. I was going to try popcorn, but I heard the trip feels more artificial if you grow off of popcorn. :wink:

Rye and popcorn are great for making straight grain casings with. If you plan to make master jars to G2G from or spawn with use WBS/millit because the grains are much smaller so you get more spawn points per volume of grain.

For teh substrate thickness 1-2" works great but even better is to spawn to straw or straw/manure and go the full 6". :wink:
