Just out of curiosity, you wouldn't happen to be talking about Woodland Park Zoo, would you? I used their zoodoo for cubensis substrate [jiffy casing] and had comparable results to normal compost. Funny, I used to work at that zoo--the zoodoo stock pile was HUGE but kept inside a chain link fence. So I made it a habit of chucking a few birdseed jars over into the mix. Never noticed anything fruit, though . . .

Just a comment on casing with compost or manure. Remember casings don't supply nutrition which compost or manure obviously does. I think it is really just spawning compost and not using a casing. I know it's pretty trivial, but I think spawning would be a more correct term, even if the compost is layed out in a similar manner to a casing. On a related note, I think that mixing the spawn with the compost would allow quicker colonization of larger amounts of compost than laying it out like a casing would.

Well, I've never used zoodoo, but have heard good things about it. Everybody says they "case" with it when growing the pans. That means they lay it 1/2-3 inches deep over spawn, let it colonize, then fruit. As I said above, I don't think this should really be called casing, as the nutrients in the zoodoo are necessary for the pans to fruit and casings aren't supposed to supply nutrition. Apparently the structure is similar enough to a casing that it doesn't need more casing. My opinion is that you would get faster colonization or be able to colonize more if you spawned it in a traditional manner rather than "cased" with it.
Ryche is the first person I heard using this stuff, ask him if you want an experienced answer.
