Settin up for casings
    #3440567 - 12/03/04 01:55 AM (12 years, 10 days ago)

I got my first 9 jars about 90-98% cultivating. I want to make casings and this is my first time. 9 jars should make 4 casings, right? I am going to buy a big tub to make my terrarium. what size tub will I need to fit all 4 casings. I plan to put the casings in those aluminum pan things. thanks for any help!

It depends. What size jars do you have and it also depends on how thick you want the substrate. I usually use a 1in layer of wet/dried verm. on the bottom, then about a 2 inch layer of sub. and then about a 1/2inch of casing, maybe a little thicker if i think the myc. is strong today(lol). But you might want something different. I use a 16x8x6 pan but i've been switching up to see what works best for me, Gl

Bdon, you're just going to have to do a few conversions to figure out how much casings to make. look on google for quarts to cubic feet converter, or if you know how you can manually do it.

ok, I thought I read somewhere that you should use about 2 half pint jars (brf) for each casing, but I guess that's wrong. Well I am going shopping today, so I guess if I am going with 1.5-2 inch layer of substrate, do you think I'll be ok with just 1 of those large tubs, or 2?

You'll be ok with just one tub probably.

First casings I did I though I would use two brf cakes as well per casing, but when it came down to it I had to use 4 per casing to get a 5"x8" by 2" deep substrate layer.  Casings produce awesome. :thumbup:

It's really easy to do, I don't see why everyone doesn't case right away.

I've still had 0 contams while growing.  All my contams showed up during late incubation and I lost I think 5 jars out of.. 24 or 48.. eh, I don't remember anymore, it's been a while.

Next, it's on to grains for you Bdon. :tongue:

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?
