Will this work? (cow poo + casing)
    #4195814 - 05/19/05 03:36 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Hi, I was trying to plan my next grow, but I keep read contradictory statements and am a bit confused, so I was hoping you could answer a few things.

I was told that Cambodians grow naturally on cow poo, So I wanted to use that in a casing.

Can I follow this method, but substitute the horse poo with cow poo?

.Is it better to add vermiculite or straw? or nothing?

I was then thinking of following the instructions in the casing 101 tek with the cow poo.
http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23805

.Some casing teks say to put as little as only half of a cake into each case, but some say up to six or more, what should I go with :confused:

.Why do casings produce larger yields? I mean if I follow the casing 101 method, everything is contained in the foil baking tray, but cakes are are more exposed and their sides are free for mushrooms to grow on. I don't get it  :confused:

u'll need to mix the cow poo with straw because it has a muddy consistancy

Straw, okay sorted.
Can anyone lay my mind to rest about the number of cakes used in a casing and why casing's are better with a lower surface area?

the nutrients are still gonna come out thru that smaller surface area? maybe? less fruit more nutrients? bigger, badder, mushrooms?guesses...
the casing layer holds the good stuff in and the bad stuff out. pretty sure.
