casing cakes...
    #513187 - 01/07/02 12:40 PM (22 years, 6 months ago)

I have a few cakes i want to case, but im not sure what would be the BEST method of breaking up the cakes. should they be crumbled, cut in slices, in half, or can they go in the blender? I want to know which way is going to be most generous at harvest.

Also, as a botom casing layer, would perlite or vermiculite be a better way go? anyone had experience in both? advantages or disadvantages?

Last, as a casing layer Ii am going to go with vermiculite, being i have so mush of it. Can I use a bigger grade of vermiculite as a casing layer? or would i be better off with the fine type?

any sugestions or thoughts welcome

I recommend crumbling, the mycelium grows back nicely. I wouldn't recomment blending for a casing(its just overkill). All should yield the same relatively so long as proper conditions are in place.

I wouldn't use a bottom layer, and have no experience in this area.

I would recommend 50-50, but if you are going for plain verm, I qwould recommend the coarser/bigger variety.
