i think you simple folk are missing the point of my queston....what is the optimum ph for you casing??? i feel that a ph of 8 would burn a mushroom and the faq was only talking about the 2 additives hydrated lime and oyster shells........you can add all the shell you want and the ph will not go above 8....lime on the other had you can get the ph up to 13  my queston was simply written for a reason.....oh well guess ill just have to be more thuro. what ph (if you have any idea what ph is) do you have most sucess with......take it easy home boy, life is short :grin:

The FAQ may not make mention of it but chalk can be used as well......

I was just reading from "The Mushroom Cultivator".......Stamets reccomends a pH of 8 maximum......with 7.5 being closer to ideal......I personally use very close to 7.5

  One fact that perhaps should be added to FAQ on casing is that a lot of hydrated lime contains magnesium levels that are so high as to inhibit mushroom growth.  ( 0.5%< )  I believe that this could be a problem for some novice growers who have not done enough research.
  blah blah blah..  :smile:

I've used lime with magnessium levels advertised as not being more than 3% with no problems.

I liked to be closer to 8 than 7.5 if I could. Contams like acids, shrooms like slightly basic, so closer to 8. Also, the casing will slowly acidify due to build up of metabolic processes. Wouldn't go over 8 for sure. Hell, just get between 7 and 8.

As much as we like to think it is, this isn't rocket science...

PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.

sorry if this may be a dumb question, but what is the best kit or method to test out the PH of your materials?  Thanks :smile:

You were right, it has been found to inhibit in this context.. while you may get away with it, your better off not.
