bottom layer of casing?
    #351138 - 06/29/01 12:52 AM (21 years, 1 month ago)

what would be best as a bottom layer of my casing: vermiculite, 50/50, or perlite? i will be using pie tins with no terrarium and a top casing layer of 50/50. also, will pastuerizing vermiculite by weting it then putting it in a pie tin covered with foil which is baked at 160f for an hour have a negative effect on the verm? i.e i read somewhere that the verm might burn.

i would advise using a terrarium and if you do then put verm on the bottom. no need to sterilize verm. i used some of the verm from my bag on the substrate and 1 month later i used the verm from the same bag for the under casing layer and also for the casing itself without sterilization. the casings have been in the terrarium for two days now and there has been no signs of contams. if you arent going to use a terrarium (which is wierd cus there would be no room for fruiting) then i would use some perlite but it is hard to determine how much to use cus you dont want too little humidity and you dont want too much. dont use 50/50 cus the peat moss contams easy.

hey, you got to be genuine thats the name of this game. if you're real, then you aint got nothing to worry about, but if youre synthetic then starting tomorrow you're balls come off!

I'd use perlite. Yes that'll pasteurize your verm. It's higher temps that will burn your verm.
