One concern I only have like 14 mushies. One will probably open its cap today or tonight. The others just came up yesterday. When I first did Maz back on Oct I had 130 or so mushies out of my first frush. Why so little this time?
Is it normal not to get so many shrooms the first flush. Befor I got a ton the first lush and then the count receded each flush.
Please reply with all your colective wisdome.

as what, a casing or bulk sub ?
doesn't seem well suited for either, imo
too much nutes for casing
not enough as substrate

I cased my cakes. Hippie what is meant by to much nutes. I thought you wanted as much nutes as possible. Do't these things tend to grow in areas that cattle and such rome?
What are dangerouse amounts of Nitrogen and Phos and what are some of the problems they will cause. I grew in 50/50 peat/Verm. But it seamed to me my shrooms were week. I wanted to try something with more nutes to increase yeald and potency.
Thank You for your insite and you help is greatly welcomed.

if you want to increase yeilds then go with tried and true.. get yourself some agar and start isolating... or at least find yourself some good clones and start growing those.
good luck chefpj

When hippie talked about having too many nutes he was refering for use as a casing layer.
What did you case your bumper crop trays in chef?
Posted 18 March 2005 - 07:57 PM
OK my terminoligy or understanding of terminoligy might be off. I thought by braking up my cakes and incasing them in a layer of substrate in a pan was "casing"
If someone can explain what I did, this is it. = In a pan I put down a layer of verm "field capasity" I then I put a layer if my broken up cakes, over that I put my casing layer of Bumper Crop and Verm. 50/50.
From what I am seeing is I have a great myc network. It has growm thick through the bumper Crop layer.

Thank for looking out and giving your advice not just to highflyer but to all of you as well.
When I recase do I pick the old verm, and grains off the bottom of the casing layer?
Reverm put the old casing layer down and then recase with coir/verm?
Posted 18 March 2005 - 11:52 PM
coir is one of those ingredients that people debate about. some say its great for casings and they do fine with it, others swear it has too many nutes in it and may overlay. putting you back in the position your in now.
if you dont have peat, maybe just go with straight verm for the casing layer
