quick update on the tub!

I have a full incubator of amazonian going to be tubs too! That log to come soon!
this tubs length is half as wide as my queen size bed i not a few inches more. I suspect it will be about 4 or 5 more days until I apply a casing layer.


You guys are going to be like 'wtf limeade!?' when i do my casing layer.

Thanks,

I apologize we've kinda dropped off, we'll be updating all of the threads in a day or two, things have just been really really busy and have had no time to be online, we've got 2 dro hash threads, and all of these threads to update, it's going to take time as we've got to get all the pictures organized and everything typed out!

We'll be updating everything to "back on track" here real soon, spoiler: 50/50manure/wheat straw wins the race! Does bigger sub really mean better shrooms? YES!!!

anyhow, more to come!

oh and this tub, wn't be cased, it start pinning before i could get a casing layer on, well, not PINS but hyphal knots.

Looks good. My FOAF just mixed up coir, castings, verm, coffee grounds, gypsum, repti-sand, and lime for two 18 gallon monotubs.

I think you are referring to my post above, and, now that I think about it, it probably is overkill, since the material will be fully colonized. It was a minor amount of lime and repti-sand. I like to put gypsum in everything, though.

gypsum is good for texxture that's for sure, reptile sand is all i use. lime seems too extreme too me, and reptile sand is just easy to access, of course, anyone can bust a hole in their wall and harvest gypsum though!

one question, are there any substitutes for coconut coir you could think of off the top of your head? Would peat work as well?

I really don't think peat would perform as a substrate???

the coir is being used as a bulk sub, but i bet wheatstraw, or even something similar would work, of course manure would!

but yeah i dont know about that one maybe someone else could answer that, peat is more of casing layer thing isn't it?

Yeah i dont expect peat would supply any nutrient but i was seeing it as something to fill out the substrate more or less.
I do have some left over critter country i could soak and mix in along with the castings, as i do not really have a ready supply of raw straw to use.
Maybe also a portion of verm?
Thanks for the advice.
