what is the best casing method
    #4629173 - 09/07/05 11:11 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Ok I've been reading up and doing my research. My first attempt was with casing where i used a layer of jiffy mix then the substrate, then jiffy mix. But i left it in a temp of over 90 degrees so basically nothing grew except a few shrooms. but with the jiffy mix it left shinny shit on the bottom of the stems. Then my next attempt was with cakes which is going pretty good right now. But I want massive quantity so I know I have to use a casing method. What is the best method to use.
-Meaning what type of mixes should I use.
-should I could shock them?
-also for my set-up i was going to build a shelf out of PVC pipes so i can take planter boxes and fill them all up with casing and put clear ploy plastic film over the whole rack with a light on top to try and produce heat and humidity. do you think this is good or any other ideas.?
-also do you want to spray the casing of no?

I use a mix of peat moss, verm, and lime, I put a moist layer of verm on bottom then substrate then casing mix I use 40% peat 60% verm and 5% lime
If you do the shelving thing I bought a 5 tier pvc shelf at target for 15 bucks, I got plastic sheeting and covered it, the only thing you may need is a cool mist humidifier they can be found for 20 bucks you need a significant humidity source a simple light on top wont do it, also you want to beat the heat fruit your shrooms at 75 degrees.

one other question with the cool mist, do I just set the whole unit in the green house(the shelf rack with the plastic over it) or do I need to connect a hose to it and connect the hose to the inside of the green house?<-- thats what I've seen one person do from one of their pictures. they used a tube I'd say about 2" with a funnel looking thing at the end.
