    Mushroom Casing (Substrate) is a moisture retaining layer to spread on the top and bottom of your mushroom substrate. This method is generally referred to as the "Bulk" method, Monotub or Monotek; this is alternative way to fruit your spawn bags or jars. We provide easy to follow instructions on how to use and create your bulk grow. You must use this product with fully colonized spawn bags, Jars or similar.

    To take full advantage of this casing mix, the shelf life of this casing mix is shorter than our traditional casing mix. We recommend storing at room temperature for up to 30 days for best results.

    Start by using the following substrate amounts:

    • 1 to 1.5 spawn bag per 1 bag of casing mix (using our 5grain or Rye spawn bags)
    • 3 of our 24 oz Quick-Colonizing 5-grain Jars (Pint and half size) per 5 pound bag of casing mix
    • 6 half pint substrate jars per 5 pound bag of casing mix

    Recently I used the manure mix on one half of my monotube and regular casing mix on the other half. The manure side had significant growth, while the other side hadn’t even started pinning.

    Before I found this, I was pasteurizing manure and blending my own bulk casing. This has made things so much easier. Perfectly blended and pasteurized, just open the bag and go. Two bags is the perfect amount for a large tub, 5 pounds was about 225 cu/in compressed.
