Casing covers & terra cotta pots
    #955468 - 10/12/02 06:49 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

Anybody try using a thin coco fiber mat, or polyspun fiber landscape cloth material as a top casing cover? Myc will grow right into & through them.

The raccoon was going too. Then went ahead & cased several with 50/50 ++ ( I call it ++ because I add a litle coir to the mix) & forgot he wanted to give it a try.

Ohhh well, next time. (the raccoon makes a sticky note to himself & sticks it on his forehead  :smile:)

As a side note, terra cotta or unglazed clay pots are a PITA, as a substrate container. Because they absorb water ( &, I suppose some nutes in that water).

Myc will grow on the pot - itself. The raccoon has one going & the myc colonized through the casing layer, then began clinging to the pot edge, & now is growing all around the edge , over it & down the side of the clay pot, LOL.

Lil, sumbitch is growing myc all over, like one of those Chia-Pet sprout things.

6T  :tongue:

After a lot of fooling around with them. The raccoon is of the opinion unglazed terracotta pots or containers are a pita. As myc will actualy grow on them, after they absorb some nutes out of water. Glazed ones are too. As they are heavy & fragile.

Dark plastic is better. Dollar Mart stores have plastic 10 quart dishwashing tubs for $1 each that work well as a small bulk substrate container.

That's a brilliant idea. Case inside an unglazed terracotta pot and sit it in a dish of water so the pot is constantly saturated, the myc can help itself to all the water it needs. I will be trying this one soon!

whats the racoon's opinion on vermiculite and brown rice flour as substrate. if the flower was left in the fridge in the month would it be no good? is there any better substrate mixtures that you woudl recommend. and how many scraped gills would you need to innoculate jars?  :grin:  if the racoon could help it would be much appreciated lol  :smile:

If your going to use an unglazed terracotta pot to hold any substrate. I suggest you steam or dry heat sterilize it first.

The raccoon has no opinion on cake type substrates. They work for their purpose, I.E., cakes.

For a bulk substrate, pasturized dung, dung/straw mix and/or compost is the right stuff.
