First Time grower (Questions and ideas)
    #4297305 - 06/15/05 12:47 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

My excitement grows every day as I wait for my spores, yet I still have a few un-answered questions/concerns.

I am thinking about going with worm casing (I am doing casing-tek), and I was wondering if you think purchase sing this worm casing here

http://www.earthstongue.com/site/388422/product/0036

First of all do you think that this is a good idea purchasing it like that, and should I add something else to the casings?

Also I am using strain b+, Burma,
and this very interesting

Malabar Coast

Anyone else ever attempted this strain? What is it like?

If I was to make my own poo mix, do I sterilize it in the oven or is their a better way? If so at what temp/time do you use?

Are the cheap PC's without a gauge any good or should I splurge for a better one with gauges?

Sorry for all the questions...I will post my process when I begin, so tune in if you like.

Thanks Shroomery for a great community, and thanks for the help guys/gals

expensive way to go, peat/verm/coir combination would work just as well i'd think. the worm castings would be like $80+ with shipping. the casing layer is only there to retain moisture...

also i've heard by word that earthstongue isn't so reputable.

The malabars dont grow like that...not the ones I got anyway from Ralphster who had that picture up. They're a nice strain...but the veil wasnt that solidly attached for me. I attempted to get them to look like that a few times..

You have alot to read. Worm Castings work ok...add coir, straw and verm to it though. Best to use the castings as an additive though and use field collected horse poo (search the forums for more info) and then add a little straw and castings, and verm and coir to the poo. Or just add some verm to the poo and use it like that.

Thanks for the info again.

I am going to get a cheap PC from the wallyworld.

Also I have a company that sells horse poo and straw 50/50 in 10lb bags and it is pre-pasteurized.
