Coco bottom no top?
    #377027 - 08/23/01 06:56 PM (21 years, 1 month ago)

What exactly is the purpose in having a casing over top of all the mycelium coated rye? Is it just for support? I was wondering what would happen if someone just used coco fibre on the bottom and dumped rye jars out over top in a nice fat layer, let the mycelium strengthen up again, and didn't put anything for casing on top then put it in a terarrium I know the mushies would fruit but would there be a dramatic decrease in the amount of fruits if there was no coco on top? thank yuh for any responses given.

The top layer provides moisture for the fruiting bodies. Yes, it also provides support and to a lesser degree, nutrition. More and more growers are omitting the bottom layer for their casings. I suggest you do it "right" next time.

Who said I did anything, I was asking a question I never once said "I'm doing" or "I did"

Sorry for the assumption.
