Hagen canary & finch gravel...
    #638950 - 05/21/02 08:26 AM (22 years, 28 days ago)

Crushed oyster shells w/ bits of charcoal. Can this be used in a casing? The charcoal is not a major ingredient, if it's harmful to fungus. The Oyster shells are ground to sand, but not flour, so I imagine they may help against contams more than the more coarsely ground gardening type. Any experiences with this material?

I wouldn't use it, too much shit thats not needed in it. Just get plain old 'crushed oyster shells'. Oyster shells dont provide any protection from contam's at all. It merely helps adjust the PH level and give the casing material some structure for the mycellium to colonize

Oh yeah, lime's better for contams, but I also heard oyster shells buffer the acidity in peat moss for 50/50 casings, which is my casing. The bird gravel I have is really only crushed oyster shells, so since I couldn't find botanical kind (I was at a gardening/pet supply store, no less) I'll have to try it. I think the little shards of charcoal make up about 1% of the mix.

Balancing the pH does prevent some contams that pefer a more acidic substrate.

Oyster shells are a long term buffer. You don't use a casing layer long enough for the shells to make much of difference. They don't hurt though. You'll need hydrated lime, calcium carbonate or i've been hearing a lot on powdered corral as well. Try to score some pickling lime at your local grocery store in the canning section, as this is proven to work well...
