Casing substrate question.....
    #4714548 - 09/26/05 03:48 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I have a casing substrate which is a hand mixture of peat moss, vermiculite, and limestone grit/flour.

Now this was a online pre-made baught casing soil i recived for free from a good vendor. It came in a bag and had instructions on (vaguly remember) how to add water and then place it in the microwave or something.

Basically - do any of you know what i should do to prepare this to apply over the myc? Let me know ASAP for im doing this tommorrow or tonight.

mix some water in it until it is very moist to where you squeeze it and just a little water comes out , then put it in a glass bowl and nuke it for 5 mins , stir it up with a spoon , then cover it with a lid and let it sit until its all room temp , then lay about an inch and a half of it on the bottom of casing container crumble your cake / spawn over that , make sure u get about a good inch atleast of spawn / cake , then lay a half inch to an inch layer on top , let it sit in a closet or sumthin for bout 3 days then put it in your fruiting chamber

yea , doesnt really matter but for an even pinset i would leave it in the dark that way u can make sure the casing layer is colonized evenly , when you see a patch of myc pop up way before the rest cover it up with casing material

1/4 casing material per 1 inch of colonized substrate

Say if you had,
4 inches substrate = you would use 1 inch casing material ON TOP ( 4 x 1/4 = 1)

Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.”

quick question however.

after i place the casing into the chamber for fruting.
am i then to go on with the procedures or misting the chamber, putting perlite in the bottom, allowing 12/12 light, basically do all the procedure i would do when fruiting cakes???

OR do i just put the casing a container with good humidity and let the light get in? im fucking getting confused here.
