Casing Question
    #610042 - 04/16/02 03:18 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

I have a question about 50/50+ tek, some people say the bottom layer should be dry vermiculite, and some people say it should be damp (water added) vermiculite... what do you use?

I just use the same mix as on the top of the casing.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

damp- remember, by casing you're rehydrating the cakes with the damp layer(s). so in my opinion if you are going to use a bottom layer might as well make it moist too.

I agree - I have some casings with and some without (Jiffy Mix + oyster shell casing mix, that is). Same chamber (but 2 dif strains - eq & maz), same size casings, same amount of substrate, The tray with bottom casing seems to be in better shape after 2nd flush. Not enough experience to be sure, but I am doing a bottom layer on everything right now.

I don't really know anyone who grows mushrooms. I just come here for fun.
