casing ?
    #4649012 - 09/12/05 03:30 AM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Hi everyone and thanks for taking the time to read my post. I have been using Pf tek rice cake method for about two years, with some very good results. I would now like to try my hands at casing to try to get some larger yields. I have at my disposal 21-quart pressure cooler, spawn bags, impulse sealer, vermiculite, coco coir, rye grass seed, whole corn, and brown rice flour. At this point I have six spawn bags that have fully colonized using the Rye grass seed bag tek. I like the 60/40 vermiculite and coco coir casing tek on this website. My question is with the large amount of colonized substrate that I now have (six spawn bags) what types of containers should I try breaking it down into and how thick of a casing layer should I use for the top and bottom and any other advice for this newbie who is kind of stuck at this point......Thanks for any advice

wow dude. youre a veteran! thats the fanciest cake setup ive ever seen :smile: very clean :thumbup:

for casings, those foil turkey trays work great.



Because of your experience though id say skip casings with layers and go with spawning directly to horse poo. Horse poo definitly has the highest potential of producing HUGE amounts of yield. instead of using foil trays you can just use rubbermaid bins. search for Double Tub for more info. :thumbup:

I like to get tupperware to use as casings containers. How big are the myco bags?? If there big enough you can do large casings in big tupperware containers. Anything that will hold your substrate can work as a casing, 2 litre soda bottles etc.

Your casing layer should be 1/4 the depth of your substrate. And i use a bottom and top layer so i have more moisture to draw from. Depth of substrate can be from 1"-8". So if your substrate is 4 inches in depth I would put a 1 inch layer of casing material on the top and bottom of them.

The myco bags that I am using are 8x4x19 They have about 600 grams of colonized rye seed. Once I set my casing into the containers what should I cover them with? And should I mist with water or just let stand as is? Thanx for your help

You can use wax paper or foil to lightly cover the trays. Wax paper is nice because you can sorta see what's happening in the tray. But wax paper will get soft on ya in a few days, so it will have to be changed.

Did you create that setup, or one that you bought?

The cube was fabricated by a friend and I have done all the modifications on it. The domes I purchased from a wholesaler on the west coast. I am in the process of building a larger scale cube, I will post when I have pictures available.....G
