No, hydrated only.

We'll I guess the Coco coir will be fine on its own for this casing...Ive got some more jars in the incubator getting ready to case so I;ll use the lime on them. I wonder if it will make much of a difference....

I use agricultural lime, the grey stuff. Just make sure its low in magnesium (check the label). Isn't hydrated lime that caustic stuff?

Hydrated lime is the proper one to use.

And what is "low" in magnesium?

If you do a search here you will see hydrated lime is the one you want.

luvdemshrooms, you want LIMESTONE, which is calcium carbonate aka chalk aka CaCO3 aka agricultural lime, just like Workman said, NOT hydrated lime.

I wouldn?t deny though that hydrated lime used in an not too excessive amount can lead to good results too.
But the more widerly used and recomended is the limestone.

I use hydrated and have no probs and very good results.
The only type of lime stone I can get in my area has too much magnesium in it,
so I use hydrated.
Ive seen no detrimental effects in my crops since I started using hydrated,
and it works fine for Ph adjustment though you have to be carefull adding it,
its easy to overadjust using hydrated.
actually working with hydrated is nice, its ground to flour consistancy and mixes easily with dry peat.

someone earlier said you could use chalk in place of lime. Is this correct?
If so what kind of chalk. Like crayola non colored chalk at walmart.
I have found that nursuries are hard to find open at your local town this time of year.

If I were to use chalk with verm:peat what ratios would be recommended?

Hey Anno...
Ok this is what my agricultural lime bag says...(on the back)

AGRICULTURAL LIME

"Dolomite lime supplies calcium and magnesium to the soil. It is alkaline reacting and is used to overcome acidity and to sweeten the soil. It should not be used around acid loving plants. "

Calcium = 24.9%
Magnesium = 11.4%
Calcium Carbonate Equivalent = 105%
calcium carbonate = 49%
Magnesium Carbonate = 35.7%

"Derived from Natural Mineral Dolomite"... um Dolomite??!
Is this stuff ok or what?!

The 50/50+ casing tek on this site says "hydrated lime"

Yeah I just read from the TMC that dolomite lime should not be used due to the high magnesium content. The lime should contain less than 2% of magnesium and mostly calcium carbonate....

With the Coco coir, it is a realitivly neutral casing material. You guys think it would be just ok on its own? Im going to take back this dolomite lime and just get the limestone lime. :smile:

Another question for anyone... I am using 8" X 3 1/2" X 2 1/2" bread-baking trays for my casing container. I used about 3/4" coco on bottom, 1/2" BRF/verm colonized substrate, and then another 1/2" coco on top. You guys think thats a good idea or what? My substrate is kinda chunky, I didn't know if I should really crumble it up or what. So there is about 1-2" chunks, I hope this will work out for me.

Once I see a few spots of mycelium im going to cold shock it for 12 hours in the fridge and then stick it in the terrarium @ 73 degrees and 95% humidity. All this sound OK?

You don't wan't high magnesium, that's it. All sources of lime that aren't high in magnesium are great. The coarser the product, the slower the release. A combination of coarse and fine is the best. Coarser materials, you can add more. Finer materials you add less.

But then again,
noone actually says what is not high on magnesium. It's a SUBJECTIVE thing to say.
However, stamets recommends 2% or lower. Still I want to know what works. And as I have a hard time finding it, and even harder time obtaining it when it's found, I would really like to know what is what. This should go inte a FAQ.

What's the formula of hydrated lime? Is it NaOH? Or CaO?
Or is it just liquid CaCO3?

zilch
