tons 'o shrooms
    #496970 - 12/20/01 03:11 PM (15 years, 4 months ago)

hi, i have a casing using 4 cakes, and verm/peatmoss as my top and bottom casing layers. However i didn't not use any calcium bicarbonate. Has anyone done this before? will my shrooms still grow good? What is the expected final dried yeild after all flushes, how long after mycelium starts to take over the top layer does pinning start? Thanks for all your help guys!

i just used some ground up chalk in my 50/50, and i'm not sure it was even really enough to make much of a difference. it's been working fine for me. i would expect total, all flush yields from a good casing to be anything from 6-12 grams per cake with the 50/50 tek on brf cakes.

for me, with PR on BRF cakes cased in 50/50, i got first mycelium in 3-4 days, then about 15-20% cover in another couple days, transfered into the rubbermaid, then up to a week for pin formation.

will you explain to me the purpose of the transfer to the rubber maid, my jars have just got mycelium today and i am still unsure of how to do my casing. thanks
