Calcium is not necessary. The first and only time I did a casing was 50/50 peat moss and vermiculite. I had a fabulous pin set and great yield.

The con is that your yield will be relatively poor. Still a poor yield with cubensis is more shrooms than you can handle. Most pictures on this site of "good" yields are poor ones, so don't sweat it.

i might be totally wrong but i am pretty sure you can get a piece of sheet rock from the depot and cruble the white shit and that will work. I am pretty sure its made of gypsum. Most building supply store will give the you 6"x4' of sheet rock that is used between the stacks so the fork lifts can get under them

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.
