Casing question
    #3321241 - 11/04/04 08:31 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Alright, here it is. I've got a bunch of colonized brf cakes, lots of them, and I want to make a casing and I think I would like to use the crumbled cakes to spawn to straw and case with something like a 50/50 vermiculate/compost mixture. I've never cased before and would like some input as to if this would work, or if I might as well just case with a compost vermiculate casing. If this is do-able - got any advice on how to go about it? Thanks!

I wouldn't use compost. That has nutrients, and you don't want those in the casing layer.

I agree, just stick to Coco Coir...

and if you cant get it in your area you can get it on EBAY really cheap...

or if thats not an option go to a pet store (reptile specifically) and you will find it, Brand names such as "Eco Earth" and "Forest Bed"...

When casing, can you use just vermiculite, or do you NEED something like Jiffy Mix?

100% verm will work just fine.

If you are willing to deal with compost, why don't you spawn to compost/straws and case with verm?

Ok, so what you all are saying is I should spawn to pasteurized straw and case that with vermiculate.  Ok, I think I can manage that :smile:
