casing questions
    #3631628 - 01/15/05 05:17 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I just finished looking through grow logs and it really inspired me to start casing. I just have 2 simple questions and it'll take me quite a while to look through all the FAQs to find answers.

One fo the grow logs mentioned "dunking the brick" i assume its the straw bulk substrate brick he was referring to. How would one go about dunking such a massive brick? Do you remove the casing layer completely and start pouring water in? What are the procedures?

Next question is, I have experience in using a PC to sterilize subtrate and such, but how would I sterilize or pasterize enough straw for a casing tek? Do i just shove everything in the PC and start cooking?

Thanks in advance for answering my questions. I just had to ask  :cheers:

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but isn't straw /poo (manure) more of a bulk growing tek then a casing tek. Manure is a nutritive substance making it a substrate not a casing mix, Would not peat vermiculite, coir/coir be better casing mixes. I always thought straw was mainly used with poo for bulk grows? Here I am showing my ignorance again!!

I suggest coco coir and verm for your first casing many steralize in microwave or oven with it. Some even load it into quart jars and pc like substrate
