Ok I just finished my first casing.......
    #4542615 - 08/16/05 03:47 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I just finsished my first casing but I didn't have enough substrate to cover the entire layer of verm. ....actually the substrate was pretty spread out (I used 1 colonized 1/2 pint jar..thought it would be enough) I proceeded anyway. How will this effect my results?
And can someone please tell me why everytime im around my colonizing jars my throught swells up????

it's better to not use a bottom layer, it could oversaturate your substrate

as for the swelling in your throat, is there any sort of unusualy or musty smells

Actually, it's best to put Vermiculite under your colonized myc, and then put the substrate over it. You did it fine. Don't listen to him.
But as for it being thin... You should have covered it with perfeated saran wrap and put it in the dark before adding substrate to make sure the myc continues growing.
I think all you really can do is just try doing a scratching with a sterilized fork to check growth, or just wait it out and see what happens.

absolutely under no circumstances should you listen to anything that jabber just said. everything he said is way off base.
and jabber i think pris is right on the money here, so you should think about what you are doing if this is how you conduct your operation.

as far as what kind of results you will get, the thicker the substrate the better the shroom. with that thin of a substrate layer you will get some but they may not get very big or you may get only a few big ones.

peace

Youll get some pretty small shrooms i suspect with a sub layer so thin it didnt even cover the container, best to wait till u got more next time or find a smaller casing container :wink:

:thumbup:  this guy gives info that is terrible.  It is something to note that the bottom casing layer is optional and more of a preference.  The main reason to avoid it is as pris said oversaturation.  There are also possible contam issues as well since you cant see whats going on in the bottom.  A nice moist casing layer on top, along with a pre dunked substrate layer (im assuming you dunked your substrate before casing right?) will provide adequate moisture.  Good luck, after i finished my first casing i will never ever go back to fruiting cakes again.
