first attempt at casing
    #4088753 - 04/23/05 04:39 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Hey guys, I have actually never grown mushrooms before but I am close to birthing six 1/2 pint jars PF style and was wanting to experiment with two of those by making a casing from them.

I plan on following the casing 101 TEK but I have a few questions:

1) How big of a pan will I need to make a casing from two half pint jars?

2) Should I use more than one pan?

3) My casing layer is going to be 50/50 peat/verm but I would also like to add some calcium carbonate as I have some sitting around. What ratio would you suggest using CaCO3 to peat/verm?

4) I don't have an extravagant fruiting chamber so I was wondering if using my TIT after incubation and placing a layer of perlite on the bottom for humidity would suffice? After turning off my heater the TIT fluctuates between 72-76 degrees F.

5) Just a question on lighting. If you can see the mushrooms, does that mean they are getting enough light? I could keep them in a certain spot where they would get indirect sunlight all day, but the light coming in that room is very faint.

THANKS!

1) use a pan a little smaler than a loaf of bread
2) for two cakes dont use more than one pan. I split 2 cakes into two pans once for casing and it yielded really small mushrooms.
3) this may not help you but what i do is jus eyeball it and mix it in until it is slightly visible in the mixture. im guessing this is like a 5- 10% at most ratio.
4) if your TiT stays a 72-76 without the heater off then yea fruit in there because that is optimal conditions.
5) I would say that  night light or two is all you need for light on a 6/18 to 12/12 cycle.

hope i helped you out! GL! :thumbup:
