ok i am planning my first grow and here is the plan. I will be using birdseed as my substrate and once the jars are full of Mycelial i plan on fruiting them with a 1/2in bed of perlite. What your thoughts on this technique.

with wbs you will be doing casing.....what type of casing mix will you use? yes you can use perilite as a humidifer in the fruiting chamber, but you must fan(fresh air) 2-3 times a day.
