Starting first grow as soon as spores arrive and need some advice. Do ou think i should just leave them all as cakes, do a 50/50 with cakes and casings or go with all casings. Keep in mind this is my first grow and probly will get some contamination.

You should probably do all cakes so you get some experience, but if you want to try a casing then go for it. Just be prepared for contams, and keep most of the cakes in case it does. Good luck!

try your luck with cakes, they will fruit faster and with dunking, rolling and double end casing your yield wont be disappointing.

once you get the basics down you should try casing with wild bird seed or some type of straw bulk grow.

Would you sterilize the vermiculite? If so how? Have not found anywhere where it explains how to sterilize vermiculite, just to do it.

Yes it is EQ and it is PF, no brf though I think i used a combo of millet, barley, right flour.

No need to sterilize vermiculite it cannot harbor contams when dry.

It sure can harbor contaminate spores. Its always best to sterilize the verm whenever you can.
