peat/verm/oyster shell/lime, it's versitile works great for a bunch of species and is contam resistant
for sclerotia producers don't use much verm in it.

easiest is straight verm

potting soil and coir/verm still work just not as well as the above and coir seems to contam more easily than the rest

I had a problem with peat making my casing too acidic then ending up getting the mean green with a 50 peat/50 verm casing mix. Now I used a 45 verm/45 coir/10 peat with 5% volume of calcium carbonate.

i use a 50/50 peat/verm mix. it has a lot of background info, and is widely used. i've heard of peat/verm/oyster shell/lime mix, but havent gotten to try it yet. the latter seems better than just 50/50

Yeah I don't have oyster shell or lime to neutralize peat. I just use less of of in my mix along with calcium carbonate.
