WBS Spawned to Poo cased with 60/40 Coir Verm, OPINIONS!?
    #4344785 - 06/27/05 10:24 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Hey everyone, I just thought I would post pics of my first poo casing so I can get some comments and opinions on how things look, never done poo, you might notice a little yellow tinge to the top or the casing, any ideas??




I'm still getting the hang of NOT letting the casing layer get colonized... I only had it incubating for 2 days, patched then 1 more day in, that last day the growth exploded, next time i'm birthing RIGHT after patching... good idea? I think after this flush i'll scrape the casing layer, dunk over night then recase with a fresh layer... good plan?

just let it go, it looks really good. I wouldn't bother with scratching you could damage some of the developing pins. yeah, try fruiting a little earlier, especially with poo.

To much COIR in the casing mix - leads to that almost overlaying. Next time do something like 45 peat, 45 verm & 10% coir. Adjust ph with shell flour, or whatever other fine product you can get.

Coir is sort of a high fiber hemicellulose, with high moisture retention capacity, with very minor nutriants in it. But not enough (usualy) to grow contams. Myc will grow through it & the casing layer, leading to better - thicker - more even pin sets, (usualy).

To much coir in a casing layer can/will cause overlay.

I think I saw a strain on one of the vendors sites that did that normally. Sometimes I've seen it happen when harvested late, but they weren't that wavy.
BTW, I see wood shelves I think in there. Are they coated with a laminate or anything or just bare wood?

Well it's meant to be a greenhouse, so im hoping it can withstand the humidity, it was only $15, so far no probs, but someone mentioned rotting...

I found straight grain to be more efficient if you only case it one (maybe two) quart at a time :smile:
