Where to buy casing mix
    #9171819 - 11/02/08 12:30 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I've been searching around and the only place I can find casing mix (at least in stock) is mycopath.com, is there any other sites that sell it?

I like making my own mix, and if you buy all of the materials you'll need you will have casing mix for a long, long time.

I searched for this the other day, this is my preference:

I like Roger Rabbits method of doing the 50/50 casing...

Quote:

Don't sterilize your casing material.
All you need to do is kill any trich or other fungi spores that are present.
That's why we only pasteurize casings.
You actually want a small amount of bacteria in your casing, as it helps to promote a better flush.
I would recommend pasteurizing in quart jars.


It's very easy to use your PC to pasteurize in quart jars.
Load your field capacity casing material or compost/manure into quart jars and place in the PC.
Fill with COLD water 1/2 to 2/3 of the way up the jars.
Place the jars in your PC or other large covered pot with COLD water
Cover and turn on the stove. Do not place the weight on your pc. Leave the vent open.
Allow the water to come to a boil where you can feel steam escaping from the vent hole.
Allow steam to escape for five minutes, but no longer.
Shut off the stove and leave the PC alone for 1/2 an hour.
Then repeat the process...bring it back up to a boil.
Allow steam to escape for five minutes, but no longer.
Shut off the stove and leave the PC alone for 2 hours.
At that time, you can remove the jars and they'll be just right.
I've used this tek for years, and the interior of the jars will reach 150F for an hour, but never exceed 170F.


When you are measuring out your peat...for every cup of peat add 1 teaspoon of lime and 1 tablespoon of gypsum.
Keep it dry til you are done mixing it all up....dry mix it!~
Then add the water to the peat, gypsum and lime.
After that let it sit for an hour or so.
Then test the ph.
It should be right on ph wise.
Then add your verm into the mix...after doing the above.
1 cup of verm for every cup of peat that you used.







I just used his method several days ago...
and it worked wonderfully!~

:grin:


what I did...

5 cups of peat
5 teaspoons of Lime
5 tablespoons of gypsum

mixed that up really good dry...

then added 5 cups of water...

mixed that up really good!~

let it set for 1 hour...tested the ph and it was right on the money!~

then added...

5 cups of Verm

and mixed that up really good!~

and it filled up 4 quart jars with the casing material.

and then I followed the rest of his instructions.

I like how the mycelium is coming through nice and evenly...already.


:thumbup: :thumbup: to Roger!~

You can pasteurize in a pot. I use RR's pasteurization tek, look that up, it works well for me.

You don't need a PC to pasteurize your casing layer medium.  what is your grow setup? ~Pixie~

I go to nurseries and get a 40 lb bag of verm. coarse grade. The method I use is: 10 parts verm., 1/2 part lime, 1/2 part gypsum, and a 1/2 teaspoon of hydrated water crystals,small size(potassium based, sodium based will kill myc.). I do not pasturize or sterilize. Never let me down, plus the water crystals help maintain moisture which equals less mistings.

Look for Miracle-Gro Moisture Control.

Works great as a pre-made casing mix.

I've had good luck with that stuff.

I was looking at the "Jiffy Seed Starter" today, that looks good too. Peat+verm with lime to balance pH.

You make it all possible. Doesn't it feel good?
