Grain > Spawn> Casing
    #8786692 - 08/17/08 02:55 PM (10 years, 1 month ago)

Say someone had some rye grain which was fully colonized.

Then got a big tub, spawned to coir. Waited till it was colonized.

Then I want to case in the same tub. with the 50/50.

Can i lift the slab of colonised coir substrate out.

Put the layer of vermiculite on the bottom, and sandwich the slab between that and the top layer of 50/50 mix.

Or is it best to break the slab up, or whatever?

Thanks guys

If you've spawned it and you're casing, then don't break the slab up at all, just put a layer on top.  At least that's how I understand it's done.  If you break up the the bulk colony up you have to wait for it to recover.

..I'm confused as to why you would put vermiculite on the bottom.... Otherwise, what I would do if I were you in your situation is just let it colonize 100%, then mix up a batch of 50/50+, lay it over the top, cover it again and leave for a day or so, then fruit. That's just me though. GL.

Hmm... I have truly never heard of using vermiculite on the bottom of a bulk sub. Cakes, yup. Maybe it works. Good luck either way dude.
