A few more questions...
    #543602 - 02/07/02 12:45 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

I know cakes require a little more humidity than casings, but would it be accptable to grow them both in the same terrarium? Would a layer of perlite and a fish tank bubbler/heating rock create enough humidity? Im not sure if i can find a good enough hygrometer around here and i was wondering if it was necessary.

That'll work. You can reuse perlite forever, just bake it in the oven.

Yeah its done sometimes..(both cakes and casing in a terrarium) Should be ok...just eyeball it to adjust the humidity and keep it just a little above what you usually have for a casing.

also, are you sure you should be growing shrooms? I mean, in texas, dont they execute you for that?

I dont really reside in texas, i live in Maine.

I was just thinking about doing both to get the hang of all sorts of things at once. Which would produce a better yield per cake? I was thinking about putting two cakes per casing.

Also, do you think its better or worse to have a bottom layer? and what is a good way to check for contamination in a casing?

contams in casings are usually molds, cobweb or otherwise. Youll have to eyeball it.

A bottom layer has always been debateable, but i tend to go alog with the general consensus that it only serves to introduce more contaminants without really having much benefit.
