A few problems.
    #4665848 - 09/15/05 05:30 PM (12 years, 8 days ago)

I am having trouble finding crushed oyster shells, and Agar-Agar.

http://agar.net/

Also, what is the difference between the two products they are selling?

I really do not want to order online, but if I do, which should I get?

if u buy agar agar you need to mix it (search agar recipes)... crushed oyster shell at pet/bird/feed stores....  powdered limestone is caco3 (similar to oyster shell)... you can sometimes get agar agar at health food stores(its sea kelp that gelz with water)

I found calcium carbonate, that's a substitute right? I could not find Jiffy Mix, but I got Perlite and Pete Moss. That's enough for a casing right? I also got blood meal..

:mushroom2: Toss the perilite and get some vermiculite.  Perilite should not be used for casing soil.  :mushroom2:

:mushroom2:  mix the verm/peat 50/50 and add some calcium carbonate.  That's all you need for casing soil.

1. It won't signal to the mycelium "there is no more food here, you better make lots of mushrooms now for innominate to eat"

2. It will signal to the other 12 billion microbes in your house "Hey, free buffett, why don't you nasties come and take up residence here so innominate can have no mushrooms to eat"

PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.
