Burnt soil
    #948156 - 10/10/02 04:32 AM (18 years, 11 months ago)

My casing material consists of 1part Verm, 1 part flower soil and 1 part
agricultural lime (50% chalkeffect, 3% Magnesium). This mix was grilled for an hour at 200C when all of a sudden I had unexpected visistors. While entertaining my guests in my smelly apartment I had to let the casing sit in the oven for about 2 hours. So when the guests left I figured I would quickieburn all the new germs on top of the casing. Putting the oven on grill mode for a while suddenly made sparks fly from the casing. Some of the vermiculite (I think) turned into embers.

When the casingmix had chilled, I cased a couple of jars with it. The cases with this mix reeks charcoal and burnt soil still. I'm gonna give it a few days but what do you all think about
a) the ratio of the ingredients in this casing mix?
b) any side effects of burning the mix?

Should I recase with an unburnt mix?

It's always darkest just before it goes pitch black

Well first you should look into reading more about using suitable casing materials. Soil is really not that great, my first casing was soil and yield was pathetic. Peat/verm, with a little hydrated lime and oyster shell is much better than soil, IMO. I don't know how much burnt casings will affect your mycelium, but if I had to guess, I'd say not good. For next time Read a little more, learn a little more, try something a little different. Good Luck

Yeah, dont use any potting soil...it wont do you any good. If I were you, just use the vermeculite or mix it with a 50-50 mix of Verm and peat.
