Depends on if you have a bottom layer, depth of substrate, thickness of casing layer... sure, it can be made to work, but I would recommend a little deeper a tray, for bigger shrooms. Foil loaf pans work well, the smaller ones are good for about 2 cakes per casing.

2.)can i put 2 maybe 3 different strains in one casing tray or is this not a good idea.

I've never done this, but anno says it works and I see no reason why it wouldn't.....if:  you dont mix the mycelium, but instead plant it side by side, in the same tray.  No you cant really combine all 3 together as one and hope to get anything., well you can hope... but I doubt you will be successful.

Now share some of those azures you found :wink:

One big casing? In theory there is nothing against it, in reality if only 1 of the 20 jars you?re gona be putting in it was contaminated, and you didn?t see it at the beginning, will eventually contaminate the whole casing. So I like the idea of several smaller casing containers more.

And even if all the cakes are healthy, if that casings gets contaminated your screwed.
Better put all your eggs in several baskets. Or in this case put all your cakes in several casings.

The saying goes "Size Doesn't Matter"... But in this case it actually does. Go for the smaller casinge. It will prevent a big catastrophe.

You can make a terrarium with one of those pans, wire, translucent plastic and some imagination.

You'd be better off getting a few smaller trays. If contamination shows up in that monster tray, you'll probably lose all your goodies.

As for mixing strains, dont do it. I once questioned this and was told that if you mix, the strains will 'fight' each other for domination. If you are lucky, you might get a few pieces out of it?

When I posted I was just asking about the depth. I have 3 more trays like this and I was going to cut them down smaller and tape them together like ryche hawk says to do in his 50/50+ tek. About how long should I make them?
