So this is a substrate I could use, say in, the SOS tek? That would be great, no mixing or measureing required, or in some cases you say, no sterilization! I could just use this and jiffy mix and be set! What is the name of this product again, it will just say "pre-sterilized worm castings"?

worm castings are commonly used in organic gardening so a visit to yer local garden/grow shoppe should yield results. if not, it's available online.

matt,
If you had to pasturize the compost
would you do it in the same manner as straw?
Second on your title it says great compost-
casing.Every thing that he has read it
states that the casing should not have
high nutrients in it.Why would you use
worm casting as a casing? He has even seen
people write about using cow dung.Would
you not be inviting contames with the high
nutr. in the casing??BTW, mushroom people sell it online for those that can't get it locally.

So can I use this shit (pun intended) as a substrate that I needn't sterilize? I was planning to use brf/verm but I was just wondering.

Worm Castings compost? Are you using the castings alone or mixed with some form of compost? Have you tried mixing the castings with perlite/verm. etc? The casting particles seem a litle small therfore using the stuff creates a muddy substratE.... I have used castings to make supplemental teas for my plants but never staright for my fungi. Seems it would need some improvemnt in texture.

The thing I love about opening bags of "worm castings" sold by stores is looking at the size of the chunks in their and trying to figure out what worm on god's green earth has an anus that large to pass such a thing :smile:

That's why I think Hip may be right in using that store stuff for just casing material or tea brew for substrate amendment. The real deal I outlayed in the Worm Casting Tek should be pretty damn good as primary substrate.
