Inoculating casing directly?
    #3412794 - 11/26/04 05:24 PM (12 years, 14 days ago)

Hello,
I've recently begun reading about casing. Instead of using jars and then transferring the cakes into the incubating container, why not simply poke holes in the top of the incubating container and inoculate the whole "casing" at the same time? (after sterilization, of course) - Have people tried this?

because a casing is supposed to be a non-nutritious suppliment that aids
in fruiting, if there is no nutrition there will be little if any growth

people have tried doing it yet. Here's the simple answer as to why its not done all that often. Even if you put karo into that casing, its going to take a while to colonize. longer then if you colonized jars and spawned them to the casing. Secondly, a casing is nowhere near the sterility of a jar, so there is a much higher risk of contam. Using rye or WBS is simply quicker and less likely to contam. when something is 100% colonized with myc its very resistant to contam, whereas a casing with no myc and great growing conditions (80-86F) is gonna be a playground for contams.

coco cior and vermiculite have very little nutrition, it wont colonize

i think he means put the middle layer of rye mix or ver+brf or whatever you choose to use in there, then sterilize then inoculate

you could always try it but I can envision a failuer due to the casing drying and wicking water from the substrate.

thats a situation where the substrate was sterilized in the plastic tub, then a casing layer was added after colonization
