Okay, I need some advice
    #344920 - 06/20/01 04:41 AM (15 years, 5 months ago)

Thanks for all the info everyone has been giving me on other posts... as you may can tell, I'm very new to this. Planning on growing some shrooms within a few months. I've been intending to use the MMGG for growing them, but is the Perlite tek better? Money isn't really a factor for me, however, I don't want to go way overboard. I feel a bit overwhelmed with so many different teks available especially when I don't even know what some of you are talking about. I'm going to ask a very stupid question...What is a 'casing'? Anyway, I'd like some opinions on which tek I should use for my first growing experience. Once again, thanks again for all the info all of you have given me.
Oh, where can I find the Perlite tek? Is it on this site?

For humidification of cakes, yes.

Anno, you said for humidification of cakes, Perlite is better.... is there a negative side to this?

Well, you have to fan the terarium manually 2-3 times a day.
If you do casings, only fanning and moisting the casongs is enough, no perlite needed.

Read P. cubensis Growth Parameters .
for required moisture levels in the different growth phases.

Well, I just read a lot about casing and I've decided to not to try it this time... sounds like a bit much for someone who's never done this before. I think I'll stick with the MMGG tek for now. Anyone have any advice for this tek that isn't already covered?

Off course: ;)
When preparing the substrate, do it this way:
Put the required amount of vermiculite in a bowl(NOT for each jar separately!). Use a spatula to mix in enough water to make the vermiclulite about as damp as it can be without feeling soggy, mix well. (A small puddle, very small, should form at the bottom of the bowl when tilting the bowl).Then add the appropriate amount of BRF and mix together. The idea is to coat the wet vermiculite particles with the dry powder as you stir the mix with the spatula. This sounds trivial but it makes all the difference.
