Ph Modification And A Few More General Questions...
    #4304947 - 06/16/05 08:23 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I looked everywhere from garden supplies to pet stores - 6 stores actually and none had Oyster Shell. I have ph modifiers for hydroponics but can I add that to casing? Has anyone done that before? Also...(:p)

How long will fully colonized jars live in the jar? Ive been really busy lately.

The mycelium has colonized the dry vermiculite - maybe I made the substrate too wet? Is this ok/should I still attempt to remove the verm?

Is a ph buffer really necessary? Im using about 4 cakes for a casing (20 gallon long aquarium (30" x 12")

Should I dunk the cakes before casing?

Could I mist with a little ph reducer in the water? Would that build up on top or affect the mushrooms?

Sorry this is my first time and I dont wanna fuck up :smile:

Don't use Ph for hydro.. hehe. You would be better off not doing anything than adding extreme bases and acids like ph up & down.

Ok thanks. If I happened to find oyster shell, is there anyway I could add it after they were cased? Also - Ive read you dont need to sterilize your casing. Is this true? Thanks
