A simple casing question
    #3298478 - 10/30/04 08:32 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I've read about casing itself, but I've never really figured out how casing works. Do u take pieces of the casing and put it into a highly humidifed terrarium, and the pieces grow shrooms? Could somebody put into words how casing works?

You follow a tek, wait for the substrate to colonize, then take out the colonized substrate, crumble it in a ziplock bag, prepare a case (like a foil baking tray) with a half inch of verm on the bottom, then dump in the crumbled substrate over that, then cover with about a half inch of verm. Make sure all of that is moist. *near saturation* Then cover the top with foil.

Then, place in incubator for 3 days, then pop into fruiting chamber. That easy.

Thats a casing. In the bottom is crubled up grain (cakes also work) in a flat layer then a layer of casing mix (coir/verm) on top. Then when you fruit it they all grow from the top. This gives you a chance to create an even pinset which is what you need for massive flushes.

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)

so then you don't put a layer on the bottom?? Just The cakes (or grain) and a 50/50??
