Verm grade question
    #4061262 - 04/16/05 02:13 AM (12 years, 10 days ago)

So.. After a year or so of lying dormant my shroom-growing urges have once again resurfaced. I've decided to give the old PF-Tek a try once more, as last grow I did I had way too many problems with green mold on my casings after the first flush.

So anyway, I happily ordered 10L of verm off the net, but did not think about the grade. Does this look alright for use in PF cakes? The stuff on the left is from a tiny bag I have left over from last year.

it'll do fine afoaf has been using the fine grade lately just make sure that your moisture content is right, you want to make sure that your substrate is at field capacity for the verm you are using so if its fine you may need a little extra water

We might get glimpse's of objectivity every now, and then, but we're so inherently locked in our temporal and corporeal selves that we're irrevocably locked into subjectivity :crazy:

It's actually the stuff on the right. I'm worried about it being coarse grade.. I'm guessing then the that stuff on the left is fine grade and on the right is medium grade so I'm fine?

Cool thanks. Yea, I've been doing a lot of reading. I'm going to build a PMP and see how that goes.

I'm a little wary of getting back into bulk substrates. So much effort and work destroyed so quickly :frown: I hate straw.

It's really not much work IMO...

AS long as you control your contams and how sterile you are...Then the effort is def. worth it...

And PmP's are fucking awesome, you just set it and forget lol....

and bulk is fun if mushrooms are able to grow in ur backyard :smirk:

Yea I guess it's not that much work, it's just that I have a limited amount of time (maybe a couple of hours per week) which I can dedicate to this hobby.. so yea :frown:

Ya, the PmP sounds great. The less direct contact I have with the grow the healthier they'll be. (Plus value-added extreme laziness factor!) Or something. :smile:

Heh, yea sleep is the only time I can really cut into. My poor brain has been suffering with 4-6 hour nights lately!

I know this information is probably around the forums, but what's the best way of preparing a canning jar with a 2-part lid? Should I just nail 4 holes in the middle piece and tape them together somehow?


..Dinner!

That's what most people do for brf cakes...

Just for holes....cover with tape (scotch works)...

Then put foil over and boil/pc...

No biggie...

If you decide to use grains...pm me...i'll hook ya up w/ some tyvek :wink:
