I'm a Recycle Freak, but am I dumb?
    #4725559 - 09/28/05 03:38 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Question, waste not want not, right! so I drained my casing, nore more food for the guys, so I stripped it of all it's small guys, and put a new, different layer over the casing... what will happen?

I had five cakes, they're done and proved well, but i dunked them, crushed them and cased them, what will happen?

And why can't you just keep doing this?

you will probably get nothing off of these. Once a cake is done flushing it no longer has the nutrients to put up fruits. Adding a casing layer only adds more H20 no nutrients.

i'd have to think that an additional casing layer of coco coir and vermic would provide some nutrients for continued growth. Why else would you add coco coir, lime, shell and other stuff to your casing layer if that layer's only purpose was to give H2O? When you add a casing layer on top of crumbled cakes, doesn't the cakes become a part of that casing layer, or am i completly off?

as you might guess this is my first casing :smile:

the casing layer has little to no nutrients it provides a micro climate for the substrate, it helps it fruit.

I'm here,lol. Hi.

I tend to think that once your cakes have flushed out, there are no more nutritions left to fruit.
Don't think a casing layer,even coir, will change that enough for fruits. Have heard some peeps having luck spawning them to something.

Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.

Ive heard of people taking spent cakes and starting an outdoor patch, so im sure if you do it right and add nutrients this can be done.

vermiculite and coir are both non-nutritive and lime and oyster shell are used to change and buffer the ph of the casing layer respectively. A casing layer is used to provide extra H20 to substrate a good idea because a mushroom is 90% water and only so much H20 can be taken in from ambient humidity in your fruiting chamber. A casing layer is always non-nutritive because it also provides a layer of protection from contams if there where nutrients in the casing layer it could contaminate
