When i case should i.........
    #481054 - 12/05/01 07:50 PM (16 years, 6 months ago)

I usually use a fork and tear out chunks of mycelium in walnut size chunks then put 1-2 cm of verm over it, does this sound good or can i slice the cakes up with a knife. This time im going to do 50/50 verm/peat mix please give any advice that will help?

interesting that you mentioned that the bottom verm. layer should be damp. Cause what I read mentioned to use 1cm dry, sterile verm (which you bake in the casing tray), then 1/2 to 1cm col substrate, then 1cm damp verm. I used the microw. to sterilize the damp verm. Then am misting one time per day.

(although this is my first attempt at casing...)

>then 1/2 to 1cm col substrate

.5-1 cm?! i hope not... use 2" of colonized substrate. .5" damp verm on the bottom, and .25" damp verm for the casing layer. all the casing teks i've read suggest between 1"-4"
