Using Straw as Bulk Substrate
    #520952 - 01/14/02 11:02 PM (16 years, 3 months ago)

Heya Myco-world,
I was wondering if it is necessary to use casing (if so, what type) when using past. straw as your bulk substrate and grain to innocculate the past. straw. The mushrooms being grown on the straw will be B+, Equador, Gulf Coast and some Thai Cubs. Oh yea, a nice Hawaiian strain as well (eventually). Also, has anyone heard of the pamphlet called "Growing Mushrooms the Easy Way" utilizing H202 for growing mushrooms in a non-sterile situation? if you have, what's your thoughts on the adaptation of this Tek in the PS world.
Aloha.

A half inch of verm on top is optional. I prefer it, it's easier to control moisture.

If you do not put a verm layer on top, you want to have the humidity and such as if you were growing regular cakes. If you do the layer of verm, you'd want the humidity and such as if its a casing. (cakes need a higher humidity)

I'd recommend making the decision based on whether you've had more success with cakes or verm layer casings in the past.
