Casing Materials. Will This Work?
    #4542140 - 08/16/05 01:48 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Here is my plan and I need to know if it will be okay to use. I plan on using sterilized 50/50 verm/compost manure as the bottom layer probably 1 inch thick. Then crumbled cakes for the middle layer composed of verm/compost manure/BRF. Then for the actual casing layer 60/40 verm/coco coir .25"-.5" that has been sterilized. Does this sound like a good plan?

If the moisture is right, great plan. Good luck.

Thanks. I assume the moisture level needs to be at field capacity, right?

No

Manure is a bulk substrate...you don't use it as casing layer material.



There is no need for a bottom casing layer.



Just spawn your colonized substrate into the composted manure...let that colonize then put a casing layer over it.

Okay so basically I prepare my manure/verm and after sterilizing and cooling I put it and a cake (in jars still) or two of colonized substrate into my glove box. Then I break up the cakes, mix them in with the manure/verm, cover the tray and wait for it to colonize? And after it colonizes I cover it with the casing layer I mentioned, cover the tray with foil, and then wait as usual until it is fruiting time?

one thing to remember as well, the deeper the substrate the better the shrooms. nice big flushes with nice big shrooms.
