casing question
    #4370746 - 07/05/05 01:28 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

assuming that the substrate layer is approximatly 1" thick, how big of a casing tray would be sufficient for casing the contents of a small mycobag? also. so many teks, so many casing layers to choose from, im thinking about just using sterilizer verm. is this a bad idea for a first case?

just straight verm....im sure 1/2 to3/4 of an inch would be good enough

your sub layer is pretty small....you should spawn to some poo and then case!

Don't knock of Death's door. Instead ring Deaths doorbell and run away, Death really hates that!

IMHO, 45% peat, 45% Verm & 10% coir (ph adjusted with oyster shell flour) is the OPTIMAL casing mixture.

In your shoes, 60% chunky Vern & 40% coir - would IMHO be way better than straight Verm casing.
