Casing

I have a couple of whole brown rice cakes colonizing i quart jars, im planning on casing them using the tek found on mushmush.nl under "cultivation of P.C on sterilized rye grain" could I use scotts 3-1instead of the posted peat, verm and marl mix? will colonized rice cakes work in place of rye? would regular compost work as a casing? and what exactly is the purpose of the marl (limestone)?

You are getting casing and spawning confused.

Casing is adding a non nutritious layer.
Such as peat, verm and limestone.....or Coco Coir. < examples.

Spawning is adding a nutritious layer.
Such as compost, horse poo, straw, Scotts 3in1. < examples.

"could I use scotts 3-1instead of the posted peat, verm and marl mix?"
one is a casing layer and the other is a spawning material.

"will colonized rice cakes work in place of rye?"
yes.....but Rye is better.

"would regular compost work as a casing? "
no....its a spawning material.

"and what exactly is the purpose of the marl (limestone)?"
limestone is used as a buffer to lower the ph of the peat.

good luck!

In reply to:

You mean raise the pH of peat?
