casing only grows monsters!
    #817539 - 08/15/02 11:21 AM (16 years, 2 days ago)

Hey all,

So we've been experimenting with casings a bit lately and we'd done 5 casings up to this date crumbling PF-cakes with a 50/50 Vermiculate/Peat Moss mix w/ some oyster shell. The only thing is that we're only growing 4-5 monster mushrooms (25g - 35g each wet) per flush. I know we probably shouldn't be upset w/ those kinds of yields but we are looking for a solid pinset and a nice, even canpoy of mushrooms.

Our humidity is probably too high which is usually at a pretty constant 90%. Could this be the cause or should we look into using a different casing method?

Thanks in adavance!

It could be the strain you are using. Different strains have different yields.

90 RH is fine possibly a little higher. How often are you fanning?

We are fanning three times a day and giving them 3 hours of indirect light through the plexiglas window we made for each fruiting chamber

Oh, and the casings we have made have been Treasure Coasts, Ecuadors, and B+s, all growing big-guys

Should we add oyster shell to the straight-vermiculite casing layer?
