I have used brf/verm and 50/50 for casing in the past and have seen at least 10-14 days to see the first flush after casing. I have in this case used ryche birdseed recipe and saw amazing colonization right under 2 wks. I did use the ryche 50/50 + casing and am curious what people have seen for first flush time frames. I am guessing 10-14 days same as 50/50 or half peat/vermic. By the way I am using ecuadors (yummy) :)
sounds about right.... its not only the substrate thats gonna make a difference as to how fast your shrooms start pinning. moisture plays a big part on how fast your guys grow.
Here's my little cake recipe if anyone ever wants to try it out, its similiar to ryches and I made it just out of boredum. 5 parts "steamed" finch seed, 3 parts Whole Wheat Flour (brf would work fine) and 1 part vermiculite. Its about like ryche's recipes and thats how I came up with it just by not remembering how much of what ryche puts in his. It works fine with or without the vermiculite cause thats how I mixed it for a while. Also and you might wanna add more flour if your mixture is still too wet. Anyway though, just figured I'd tell the recipe I use.... I think you should have put this in the mushroom cultivation forum though ; )
