LOL, well I'm not Magash, but I can grow a shroom or two.

what method have you found produces the best cases?

Personally, for substrate, Wild Bird Seed (WBS) spawned to horse poo is the best hands down (look under bulk for some teks on how to pasteurize and spawn to bulk). And then 50/50+ casing tek (peat moss/verm/buffer). If your goal is only a few shrooms and not a continous grow, you could use straight grain, either straight rye (as Magash uses) or WBS or millet. Hpoo will give you the best and most potent results though if you want to put in the time and effort.

also what do you know about potency does poo really help potency?

Yes. Not the store bought crap, but aged field collected horse poo..

What kind of cakes do you use for your casings?

You would use quarts of grain, not cakes. Cakes are a waste to start at and a simple step to skip if you have a pressure cooker. The quarts could be filled with any grain just about, but rye works best if fruiting, WBS works best if spawning to poo (IME).

And anything you would like to add on to your work. tips anything.

Read, read, read. Give them lots of fresh air, and keep your water delivery constant and good.

O and how many flushes do you get from your cases?

Generally its not worth it to keep casings passed 3rd flush, but if kept well a casing can keep producing a few shroom for many flushes, I've kept some casings around for 8 before tossing them, and they still may have produced a shroom or two over a few more flushes..its just easy to make up new casings in 2-3 weeks, and 3 flushes would take at least that long, if not longer.

Hope this helps. Maybe Magash will pop in and answer too..

I love it how you always place objects on your shrooms :smile:, even a whole carton of eggs!!!
