Feeding mycelium in the casing zone
Depending on duration of vessel sailing and temperature, the calcium suspension can settle and temporarily solidify due to weight of liquid above it.
This is a simple system for mixing contents of IBC before decanting.
Can be done with 1″ or 2″ piping.
First time; both pump and air agitation is better
Subsequent: air agitation should be sufficient
Some growers who apply Mycroliquid immediately after clearing a flush and leave overnight before starting watering’s for next flush and have some large mushrooms left like above may see a slight white colouring on the cap edges the following day. To avoid this apply 1/2 l after the Mycroliquid watering to wash off caps but not any more as we want to keep the nutrient in the pinning zone for a period to react.
This is not normally an issue with small pins.
Using a simple submersible pump. This model is 10000L per hour capacity.
Dropped through the neck of the IBC and left for a period does a fantastic job.
Another possibility is a 4″ well pump that will drop straight through.
The best all around way is to have a pump connected to IBC with a recirc loop and tap back to top of iBC
and a T for decanting product when ready. This way the IBC can be left in place while being emptied.
Here it s in action…..
We commissioned Prof Ralph Noble to conduct an independent test on our casing complement. Herewith is the summary report
NOTE: Due to circumstances Ralph was not able to put extra water in for 2nd flush which is what our customers do to increase and improve 2nd flushes. Ralph used a slightly different protocol to normal applications in case run and post 1st as some growers want to apply pre 1st flush and these tests were to prove that could be done without causing bacterial blotch or reducing whiteness which was of course the case.

We always state that IBC’s are agitated before they are drawn off and dilution. There are 2 alternatives; an air line cable tied to a pole that can reach the bottom. Most of the time that works very well.
If however the product has been stored for a long time or maybe subject to warm conditions during shipment, it may have ‘dropped out’ more than usual (it is a suspension). Another alternative is to use a two handle ‘plaster mixer’ and to extend the shaft by cutting in two and welding both ends into a tube collar so that it can reach the bottom of the IBC. Within 10 minutes all should corrected and it should remain in suspension after that for another few weeks.
