got my 3:1, need help
    #780315 - 07/27/02 02:49 PM (16 years, 1 month ago)

ok, i picked up some Scotts 3 in 1 that i want to spawn some casings with. Is it a bad idea not to add anything to it to aerate it, like vermiculite or wheat straw? (ive already decided im not using any vermiculite because i dont want the mycellia to have to colonize anything that has no nutrition, that just seemsl like a waste.) my only other option is wheat straw and i dont want to buy a whole bail b/c i have no where to put it and i only need a small amount, so i have to go take it from a neighbor who just planted grass . anyway, im to fuckin old to be doing that, so im tempted to just use the compost straight to make my life easier.... will it work? anybody tried it?

I would mix a small amount of vermiculite in...Like three parts compost to three parts verm ,this will make your casing clonoize much faster as it will areate the compost to some degree the mycelia will be able to run through it more esily

three parts to three parts?

i would mix your scotts 3n1 with about a 4:1 or 3:1 ratio... that way you are using the nutrients out off the compost, and the verm will just help hold in water.

works great.

the guy with all of the great pics of the scotts 3in 1 suggest a 1:1 ratio.
it works!
