What is casing and what are the steps?
    #4613606 - 09/02/05 08:25 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

This is my first time growing mushrooms. I have eight jars that I planned on using the PF technique. I have heard of casing, what is this and how do you do it. What are some advantages and disadvantages of this technique and should it be tried being my first time or should I just stick with the pf technique and use cakes?

You should try it your 1st time ITS EASY. I would say you split the cakes in half with a sterile knife when there fully colonized. Then line them up in a aluminum cooking pan and crumble a few of the cakes into the valleys between the circle shaped cakes. Then put the half vermiculate *homedepot lowes* and half peat moss mixture *which is sterilised in microwave and water added and squeezed until its a slow drip in your hand. You just sprinkle that on top about a half inch layer or inch.
