Compost Casing ?
    #633232 - 05/16/02 03:09 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Ok, so I have 45 half pints about 2 weeks from birthing, all cloned mycelium from a large EQ fruit. I also have a 10 lb bag of Dung Brother's compost.

-What I planned to do was use 1 cake crumbled in a bread pan, and filled the rest of the way w/ compost. I figure I could make 45 casings like this, but I doubt the compost will make that many.

1. I've actually had this compost for about 4 months. It has been sitting in a closet, and I haven't had the chance to use it before now. Should I worry that this is no longer sterile? It is still in the filter patch bag, unpunctured. If I need to sterilize, how should i do it?

2. After the compost has been eaten through, I want to either fruit these pans w/ no additional casing, or case w/ coir. I've heard exposed compost tends to attract trich, any truth to that? If I case w/ coir, should I let the mycelium completely eat through the casing, or put into fruiting chamber directly after spotting mycelium at the surface?

3. Any suggestions on a better use for the materials at hand??? Suggestions welcome.

You should still be able to use the compost. In theory you can store sterilized substrate indefinitely so long as you store them properly.

But if you want that many shrooms, there's easier ways to do it than to prepare 45 casings. Check out the Bulk Tek section and you might find a better way to put your 45 cakes to use without needing all that much compost.
