1st time casing question
    #811482 - 08/11/02 07:24 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

I have grown mushrooms once before, 6 1/2 pint jars which yeilded about 40g's dried. Anyway I simply followed the PF TEK last time and it worked out great. About a week ago I innoculated 3 1/2 pint jars, which is a very small amount (not enough spore solution) I want to try casing this time because I will get more shrooms than following the PF TEK completly. My question is: which casing method would you suggest for an intermediate grower like myself? Or any of your casing methods/suggestions would be appreciated...Thanks

I've found that the best way to decide what kind of casing material to use is to first evaluate what it easily and locally available to you. Most people can get Vermiculite, and that works fine, but some prefer other alternatives like coco coir or potting soil.

Vermiculite is easy because you don't have to do anything except wet it and put it on. Other, more nutritive casing materials may need to be pasteurized.

Read through the casing section of the FAQ, and follow some of the links. There are lots of really good methods doccumented. They all work, you just have to find something you don't have to order stuff for, IMHO.

You should print some of your shrooms next time, then you'll have no problems with running out of spore solution

You could case two with vermiculite and fruit the third as a cake in a lettuce crisper just in case the casing gets contaminated. I got my crisper at the dollar store. Make a print like zeta said.

Say, can I have some of your purple berries?
Yes, I've been eating them, for six or seven weeks now, haven't got sick once.
